Abstracts are hereby solicited for oral presentation in any of the special sessions listed, or the XRD and XRF poster sessions.

Not all contributed abstracts submitted for oral presentation will be placed in a special session, but rather, chosen for poster presentation.

Poster sessions will be held on Monday and Tuesday evening of conference week, in conjunction with the evening receptions.

The Organizing Committee considers the withdrawal of an abstract after it has been accepted and advertised as highly nonprofessional (except in special circumstances).

Please try to secure travel funding and approvals before submitting an abstract.
