CDDW 2021 will be taking place virtually March 6-7, 2021.

The abstract system will be opening shortly with an extended deadline of November 15, 2020 to accommodate late exams and unexpected work disruptions. We will be accepting abstracts for GRIT, Research Topics, and the core program. As in previous years, we will award Student Prizes and offer oral presentations to the highest ranked abstracts. Posters will look a bit different, but all accepted abstracts will be available online for presentation. We are looking forward to seeing your work presented in new ways at this year’s CDDW™!

Trainee Programs
The GRIT and Research Topics committees are happy to announce they will be hosting virtual programs prior to CDDW™. Attendance is based on a competitive review of abstract submissions and space is limited.

The Scholar’s Program will be hosting a virtual program prior to CDDW™ and we ask Program Directors to submit nominations for their trainees to attend by November 15. Please see for eligibility criteria and the application process.

Please stay tuned for further information, including the preliminary program, abstract launch, and trainee program dates, later this month.
