In order to submit a poster, authors must first submit a one-page summary by Friday October 18, 2013. Summaries and the follow-on posters may cover pure or applied science and technology. Summaries will be evaluated for quality and, if accepted, an invitation to present a poster will be sent to the primary author by Friday October 25, 2013.
