This year at the EHA Meeting we will be trying something new: a poster session to run concurrently with the other more formal sessions. We will try to accomodate as many posters as possible, and we will give relative but not absolute priority to graduate students. Anyone who wishes to apply for the poster session, please email email@example.com with (a) your name, (b) how to contact you, and (c) a title and an abstract for the paper that you want to display.
