Subject: 2015 AFS abstracts are due on March 13th
Abstracts for symposia and contributed sessions for the 2015 AFS meeting are due March 13th at 11:59pm (Pacific Time), NOT February 13th as previously published in Fisheries. The 2015 AFS meeting will BEGIN accepting abstracts on February 13th. We recommend all contributed session presenters to consult the list of accepted symposia that will be posted on the AFS website by February 13th prior to submitting their abstract. As supported by the AFS, we encourage all contributed session presenters to indicate in their abstract submittal whether their presentation may fit the topic of an accepted symposium. This will facilitate integrating appropriate contributed session abstracts within symposia. Please note that the 2015 AFS website is the final word for deadlines and other information.
