Call for “Big Question” Symposia Submissions

This year, we are implementing a new submission procedure for three sessions. The Program Committee has crafted three big picture questions for which we are inviting individual presenters (co-authors are, of course, welcome) to submit abstracts through a separate submission portal. These questions are meant to be broad, inclusive, and to tackle some pervasive issues in our field. Example topics are provided but should not be seen as limiting; if you believe your work is relevant to one of these questions, we encourage you to submit. Ideal candidates for inclusion will be presenting original research that addresses some aspect of the Big Question. The Program Committee will review all submissions and will select a subset to present; selections will be made to maximize diversity of presenters (e.g., different labs, measures, perspectives, career levels), as well as coherence.

·      Authors may only submit to ONE of the Big Question Session.
·      Authors whose symposia are rejected from the original Call for Symposia are welcome to submit their individual abstract for consideration for the Big Question Session.

Please contact Cat Norris ( with any questions. 

Word Count
Limit each abstract to 1,600 characters in length, including spaces. Abstracts longer than 1,600 characters will not be accepted. The 1,600-character limit applies to the abstract body only and DOES NOT include the title, authors, and optional funding source information.

Submitting Author
All correspondence will be directed to the Submitting Author only. Consider using a personal email address as many emails will be caught in corporate or government filters.

Abstracts may be edited until 11:59 p.m. (PDT) on Monday, April 1, 2019.
