We are delighted that you will be joining us in Toronto for our 45th Annual Convention. The ABCT convention offers many opportunities for you to network with like-minded people and make new connections. Poster sessions, Invited addresses, SIG meetings, coffee areas, the elevator, and the hotel lobby are all good places to network! And don't overlook speaking with ABCT's members who have stars on their badges. Each star represents 5 years of membership.

A new format this year: Spotlight Research Presentations: They are 60- minute sessions intended for in-depth presentations of especially innovative findings. They can be made by a single investigator or multiple investigators from the same team, and may include, but are not limited to, new results from randomized trials or psychopathology studies of a great practical or theoretical importance.
