College Student Conference Deadlines

Due to DACA, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Jose, many of the original deadlines for registration, travel grants, and research poster competition abstracts submissions have changed significantly to allow students affected by these elements time to make the necessary adjustments to be able to attend the conference.  If further assistance is needed with registration or travel support, especially from students in Houston, Texas Gulf Coast, New Orleans, Florida, and Puerto Rico, please email

Changes have been highlighted below.
