Registration and Abstract Submission


We have extended the registration and abstract submission deadlines to allow every opportunity for attendees to apply for SDB membership. Here are the new deadlines:

  • SDB Membership Application Deadline: January 15, 2013 (5pm EST)
  • Abstract Submission Deadline: January 20, 2013
  • Early Registration Deadline: January 20, 2013
  • Late Registration Deadline: February 7, 2013 (can attend only, cannot present)

Registration and abstract submission for this meeting is being handled by the national SDB website and Reservations must be done directly throught the University of Utah Guest House website. Prices for registration before January 20, 2013 are listed below. We highly recommend that you register before this date as prices go up $25 on January 21, and you will no longer be able to submit an abstract for the meeting.

All attendees are also invited to present a poster. However, at least one author on the poster must be registered for the meeting. The best poster and talk will receive a $1,000 travel scholarship to present at the SDB Annual Meeting in Cancun, Mexico (June 16-20, 2013).
