    This function enables you to search for a Keystone Symposia meeting by any word in the meeting title, location, organizer names, meeting summary or sessions (including session names, speaker names and talk titles).

    SEARCHING BY A NAME: If you are searching based on a person's name, it is best to enter only part of the name, OR to enter the First Name, the word 'AND', and the Last Name, like this: "James AND Aiken".

    KEYWORD(S) ENTERED WOULD RETURN...
    Aiken James Aiken, Jim Aiken, Robert Aiken, Walter Aikenstein
    James AND Aiken James Aiken, James W. Aiken, James R. Aiken
    Would NOT find: Jim Aiken, Robert Aiken, James Taylor
    James OR Aiken James Aiken, James W. Aiken, James R. Aiken, Jim Aiken, Robert Aiken, James Taylor, James Johnson, Jesse James
    James Aiken James Aiken (an exact match)
    Would NOT find: James W. Aiken, James R. Aiken, Jim Aiken

    We often list the person's full name with the Middle Initial.
    See 'Combined Words' below for more details.


    Searches on the Keystone Symposia website can be modified to narrow or expand your search criteria using the terms listed below.


    TERM USE EXAMPLE
    AND Used to narrow your search. Cancer AND MicroRNA - would return any meetings/abstracts with both 'Cancer' and 'MicroRNA'. If just one of these terms exist, the meeting/abstract would not be returned in the search. See NOTE below
    OR Used to expand your search. Cancer OR MicroRNA - would return any meetings/abstracts with either 'Cancer' or 'MicroRNA'. If just one of these terms exist, the meeting/abstract would be returned in the search. See NOTE below

    You may use commas instead of the word OR...so 'Cancer OR MicroRNA' is the same as 'Cancer, MicroRNA'.
    NOT Used to narrow your search. Cancer NOT MicroRNA - would return any meetings/abstracts with 'Cancer' but not 'MicroRNA'. If both of these terms exist, the meeting/abstract would not be returned in the search. See NOTE below
    Combined Words Used to narrow your search. Cancer MicroRNA - would return any meetings/abstracts with 'Cancer MicroRNA', but not meetings with only 'Cancer', or only 'MicroRNA', or both words...it is expecting to find the term 'Cancer MicroRNA' which is unlikely. The better way to search would be to use 'Cancer AND MicroRNA' or 'Cancer OR MicroRNA', depending on what you were searching for. See NOTE below
    Wildcards Asterisk (*) - Used to expand your search...helpful if you know a part of a word, or part of a name you are looking for. Immun - would return any meetings/abstracts with 'Immune', 'Immunology', 'Immunologist', 'Immunity' etc. See NOTE below

    By default, any keyword you enter on the Keystone Symposia website will be 'wildcarded', so there is no need to enter a special character at the end of your term, such as an asterisk.

    NOTE: When using 'AND', 'OR', and 'NOT', the FIRST word must be an exact match...

    For example, searching for "Canc AND MicroRNA" is not the same search as "Cancer AND MicroRNA"; the first search would NOT return records with 'Cancer', only the second search would because the full word Cancer was typed.
