Explanation of the Abstract numbering: The different forms of participation are indicated in the Program by their acronyms. Each presentation is numbered (e.g., 1098.28), every session has been assigned a 4 digit number. The first digit represents the day of the week: 1000=Monday, 2000=Tuesday ..... 5000=Friday. The next 3 numbers represent the session number in the order that the session occurred each day, and the decimal is the identification number of the individual paper/poster in each session. For example, 1098.28 POS means the presentation is an Interactive Poster Session on Monday, the 98th session of that day, the 28th paper in that session.
