CAN I PRESENT MY ABSTRACT VIRTUALLY?
All presentations are expected to be delivered in-person. Virtual presentation may be allowed for uncontrollable events (i.e. government travel restrictions, acute illness) and not simply upon request.
WHAT IS THE EXPECTATION FOR THE VIRTUAL POSTER SESSION?
All poster presenters will be required to upload a virtual presentation of their poster and be able to participate in the Meet the Poster Author session live in Austin.
WHY IS NANOS NOT OFFERING A HYBRID MEETING?
A hybrid meeting is significantly more expensive and requires resources we simply don't have, as well as dramatically increases the cost of registration for each member. Instead, we will offer an on-demand CME option approximately one month after the meeting for those who cannot attend live.
