“Thank you for submitting your symposium proposal entitled "Title of Symposium". Your reference number for this submission is XXXX.

You should now ask the authors of the papers that are to be presented as part of the symposium to submit their abstracts. When they click to submit a new abstract they will see a screen that lists all current symposium proposals and they should select yours in order to link their abstract to your proposal.

The proposals will be reviewed shortly and you will be informed by March 18, 2016 whether or not your proposal has been accepted. Please remember to quote the conference name and the reference number in any communication with us."
