1 BIOMETRICS SECTION NEWSLETTER, January 2017 Edited by Sheng Luo, Biometrics Section Publications Officer TIME TO SUBMIT ABSTRACTS FOR THE JSM 2017 at Baltimore! Abstract submissions for regular contributed and topic contributed papers will be accepted online between December 1, 2016 and February 1, 2017. See for more information. Topic contributed sessions are nice alternatives to regular contributed sessions because the sessions are organized around a central topic, the talks are longer (20 minutes rather than 15), and one can have discussants as well as regular talks. Sessions typically consist of five participants (i.e., four speakers and one discussant or three speakers and two discussants). Those interested in organizing a topic contributed session should notify the 2017 JSM Biometrics Section chair, Barbara Engelhardt ([email protected]), and must submit a proposal online between December 1, 2016 and January 11, 2017. See for instructions on organizing and submitting a topic contributed session. Please also consider proposing a topic contributed panel session. Panel sessions have 3-6 panelists, and the session submission format involves one abstract for all speakers. See the website for details. Note that if each speaker wishes to provide an abstract, speak on a specific topic and submit an individual paper for JSM Proceedings, then your session should be a paper session.
