The response to our call for session proposals was wonderful! We received 12 proposals, which is the maximum number we can submit and the CCMS Advisory Board was very pleased with the thoughtfulness and quality of the proposals. The application was submitted to ICMS yesterday. Now we will await the decision of their committee. Thanks to everyone for their work!
Listed below are the titles we submitted. More information will be forthcoming once we hear from ICMS, which will be several weeks from now. In the meantime, please consider whether you would like to submit a paper to one of these sessions, or volunteer to help organize or chair. We want to encourage everyone to be involved.
