A: Brian McEvoy: “I think the answer on that is, again we have a deadline, I think we’ll use that to see what content comes in in this first phase. With any conference, there’s always a possibility of extending the deadline, and we have time to do so, but I would encourage even if it’s very draft the earlier [the better] to get in an abstract. They can always be refined over the coming months, there is time for that, so again if you have an idea for an abstract my advice is; get it in early, get it on the agenda for the program committee. There’s always time to refine it and finesse it over the coming months before final decision on the actual program structure.”
Added on Feb 5: The Call for Abstracts has been extended to March 1.
A: The convention center is not easily reachable on foot. There will be a shuttle service provided to and from the Marriott Hacienda Belen. Below is a map of the distance between the hotel and convention center.
A, Brian McEvoy: “The exhibition space/the exhibitors will have the opportunity to really show showcase their commercial offerings. I think for the tech theaters our wish is that we get presentations on innovations, the tech theater is now redesigned as sort of a commercial exhibition space if you like.
Certainly if somebody has an innovation that they’ve done in development of equipment, or services, or a new dosimetry system, that they want to share the development, the science, the background, Tech theaters will be an opportunity for that. But not necessarily for Product Promotion, I think that can be done at an exhibition booth itself.”
