With just over a week remaining to the submission deadline, I am just posting to remind you to e-mail your abstract to Tim.Trussell@sas.com.
One quick note, in an effort to allow an abstract to demonstrate the three evaluation criteria outlined in the original message, the 1000 character maximum should have been 1000 words. My apologies for the confusion, but as I have not had any final submissions yet it shouldn't put anyone at a disadvantage. This said, abstract proposals should focus on succinctly and clearly outlining the research purpose and methods.
