If you're thinking of putting together a symposium for the upcoming AAPA meeting, you still have time; the deadline is July 15. You need an abstract for the symposium topic, a participant list, and tentative titles but your participants don't need to come up with an abstract unless your symposium is selected. Keep in mind that AAPA limits first-authored presentations to ONE per person. Check the link above for more information about the meeting and submission instructions. Good luck!
