Call for Papers

Interested in presenting a workshop at Convention 2016? See the Call for Papers page on the left menu for more information.

Host Hotel - Washington Hilton
We are sure to keep you busy with a vibrant exhibit hall, full schedule of workshops, off-site options, and a research symposium moderated by Frank Lin, M.D., Ph.D., but take time to enjoy the neighborhood - the Washington Hilton is just a short walk to restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Enjoy all the nation’s capital has to offer as the hotel is only four blocks to the Dupont Circle Metro (Red Line), providing easy access to the National Zoo, Smithsonian museums, the National Mall, and more.

The hotel has a health club, outdoor pool, patio, and several dining options.

The room block will open in October – do not reserve your room yet as our negotiated rate is not yet available.


Exhibiting and Sponsorships
The Exhibit and Marketing Opportunities prospectus has been distributed to sponsors of Convention 2015 who have right of refusal until October 17. Please check back here for updates.

We offer exhibiting companies the opportunity to present in the Demo Room – the Call for Papers for Demo Presentations will be available along with the Exhibit and Marketing prospectus.
