Confirmation & Registration

All podium presenters must confirm their plans to participate by registering for the program by May 1, 2013.  Please visit the Registration Tab of this website to register online.

Final Program Book

Presenters’ abstracts will be published in the scientific program book as submitted. Any corrections that need to be made to the title or author listing should be sent to meetings@srs.org by May 1, 2013. SRS cannot make edits or additions to the abstract text. Also, authors may only be added to an abstract if they have an existing author account in the abstract submission system and a completed COI Disclosure Form.

Cancellation & No-Show Policy

Authors unable to present their paper in person should inform SRS ASAP which co-author will present in their place. If no one is able to present the paper, please inform SRS by May 1, so an alternate paper can be substituted. Please note that in the case of a "no-show" podium presentation, all authors and co-authors associated with the "no-show" paper will be prohibited from presenting any papers at the next two IMAST.

Disclosures

Please note that an additional slide including all authors' financial disclosures will be shown on the screen opposite of the presenter during the presentation. If speakers have any corrections to make to their disclosure statement, please send them to meetings@srs.org by May 1, 2013.

Housing & Travel

Presenters are expected to register, pay required registration fees and incur all costs for housing and travel. Please visit the Housing tab of this website for details on arranging housing and travel to Vancouver.
