Dear member,
I hope this correspondence finds you in good health.

With a view to replicating the success of last year’s excellent annual meeting, we are once more inviting applications for presentations via our homepage. In order to enhance the quality of presentations, we are expanding the presentation summary field on the application form, and following the submission of presentation papers, the organizing committee will conduct a screening and give feedback to some of the presenters. For this reason, the deadlines for presentation applications and presentation papers will be earlier than usual. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
It is vibrant exchanges transcending the roles of researchers, business people and students that go to make a rewarding and high quality annual meeting. I look forward to seeing a great many applications. Wishing you the best,
