5. Once the abstracts have been sorted by the program organizers, honoring requests for changes to abstracts will be limited to misspellings in authors’ names up until the program is published on the web. Therefore it is imperative that you proof your abstract prior to submission.

6. Upon notification of abstract placement in the program it is the responsibility of the authors to check the abstract on the web program immediately and notify the NetSci staff of any discrepancies.

7. Requests for withdrawals must come to the NetSci in writing by e-mail. Withdrawals received prior to the printing of the program Bulletin will be withdrawn from the Bulletin. Withdrawals received after the printing of the Bulletin, will be reflected in the program Corrigenda.

8. In general, the time allotted for the presentation of oral contributed abstracts is seventeen minutes for presentation and three minutes for questions.

9. Authors of abstracts assigned to poster sessions should be sure that the title and content of the poster correspond to the title and content of the abstract printed in the program Bulletin. The poster should be displayed so that a number of people can view the presentation at the same time. You may tack your poster up to the provided backing boards. When designing your poster, take into consideration that attendees may be viewing the material from a distance beyond 3′. The minimum poster size is 3′ high x 3.5′ wide (.92 x 1.07 meters) but no larger than 4′ high x 4′ wide (1.22 x 1.22 meters).
