We have received many abstracts for our upcoming virtual ASM and thank you to everyone who has submitted their work so far. Our virtual platform offers us the opportunity to showcase more high quality and interesting posters and presentations than usual and so we have decided to extend the submission deadline by 1 week.

‘Whether submitting work for consideration or not, please remember to book your study / professional leave now if you haven’t done so already so you can enjoy the conference without distractions. You deserve some time away from the coal face and time to enjoy an interactive, educational experience.
