hi again @roscommon3d!

Thanks for posting this - I've shared on twitter as well.

I intend on submitting an abstract myself but noticed that the application form is only available in Word format and in some sections asks that I "Choose an item" from a list - I'm afraid I don't have a copy of Microsoft Office (I use google docs) - would you have any guidance for these sections?

Thanks again!

Sorry I did not think about people with Office. the drop down menus don't seem to transfer to google docs. here is a edited version https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_-opkbp3hmWajdTU0JqUDdLaVU/view?usp=sharing
