You are invited to submit your abstract to COMP's technical program for the Denver ACS meeting (March 22 - 26, 2015). The abstract submission now uses Meeting Abstracts Programming System (MAPS; ) by ScholarOne™ and while it will be different we believe it provides a better user experience. Because MAPS is new to all of us, we strongly encouraged you to submit your abstract early for the Denver meeting. By submitting your abstract early, any problems can be handled quickly and easily. COMP abstract submission is currently open via MAPS and closes for COMP division submissions at 11pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, October 28, 2014.

Brief instructions to help you submit your abstract using MAPS ( ) is provided here:
