(1) 2015 CEDAR Abstracts due Friday May 15 (Very Soon!).

From Barbara Emery (emery at

We currently have just over 100 registrants for the 2015 CEDAR Workshop in Seattle, about half students and half non-students. We can fund a little over 100 students, so we encourage students to register soon.

Students need to present a poster to receive funding, and they incur a late fee of $75 starting Monday May 18.

All participants who want to present a poster need to register by May 15 since abstracts are due Friday May 15 and are submitted via the registration form.

Those planning a poster, please choose on the form to present 1 or more posters rather than 'none', since adding a poster later with 'none' requires intervention of either Kendra ( or Michelle ( to correct your record. You should be able to change your abstract and author list etc up to when the poster booklets are prepared (~June 1), but a title and categories to sort them in MLT or IT sections are necessary. The CSSC judges will start sorting the posters into the MLT (Tuesday) or IT (Wednesday) sessions and into other sections within these broader categories in about a week.

Students can only have 1 poster judged, so if they have 2, they need to specify which poster to be judged.

We hope to see lots of registrations come in soon!
