Research should have been conducted over the past year. Unpublished studies are preferred, but manuscripts published within a few months of the Summit will be considered.

Selected submissions will be published in the Summit program booklet and website and will be invited to discuss their abstracts during the poster session. The top abstract as determined by the NDORI Judging Committee will be invited to deliver an oral presentation at the Summit.
