Symposium Organizers

Symposium Organizers are generally selected by the Program Chair and/or the division or committee leadership; have view-only access in MAPS to monitor abstracts submitted to the symposium; are responsible for reviewing and arranging abstracts submitted to the symposium through Excel workbooks.
