NOTE: To support those seeking USA Travel Visas, the NMDC 2018 Program committee will perform a “continuous” review; once abstracts are submitted they will be reviewed and notification of acceptance sent. Similarly, once the review manuscript is submitted they will be reviewed and notice sent. Thus the earlier the submission, the more lead time an author can gain for their US Visa processing.
