Abstract Submission

The OE3C 2021 organizing committee is very happy to invite meeting participants to submit an abstract for consideration for an oral or poster presentation. There are three types of presentations available:  

  • Full Length : pre-recorded talk via YouTube – 15 minutes 
  • Three Minute Thesis (3MT)-style : live talk via Zoom – 3 minutes (what is a 3MT?)
  • Virtual Poster : PDF posted on our website 

Abstract submission will close February 28th, 2021 at 11:59pm EST. Participants will be notified in mid-March if their abstracts have been accepted and early-bird registration will open shortly thereafter.
