Abstract Acceptance
by Feb. 7, 2014

Submitters will receive notification emails from PICES Secretariat regarding the acceptance of their abstracts (as oral or poster presentations).* 

Session convenors will do their best to accommodate authors' preferences for oral or poster presentations. The number of oral presentations accepted for an individual special session, however, may be limited by the availability of oral timeslots. Therefore, some of the abstracts might be moved to the Poster Session. However, some presentations might have a chance to be moved back to the Oral Session ONLY IF the Presenter's name is in the list of potential replacements (please check "Schedule" page after the schedule is finalized) and the cancellation occurs.

Session convenors reserve the right to reject submitted abstracts that are poorly written, do not follow the submission guidelines, and/or are completely beyond the scope of the conference. They also have the right to move the abstracts to more suitable sessions.

*Sometimes a submitter's server rejects PICES email. Please check "Schedule" page to see if your presentation has been accepted.
