Abstract Submission Specifications

General Guidelines

Abstracts must be well-written to clearly and concisely outline the material being proposed for presentation.

Abstracts must convey the information reviewers will need to assess the scope of the work and the data likely to be available at the time of the presentation, determine its relevance, compare it with other proposed presentations, and, if accepted for the program, assign it to an appropriate format and session.

Abstracts with a pronounced advertising or marketing focus will not be accepted.


See the example abstract for format specifications.

Abstracts must be organized under the following required subheadings shown in the example abstract:


Abstracts may be submitted only online. The submission form will require the following:

Note: If you are submitting an abstract on behalf of someone else please be sure to remove your information as the corresponding/presenting author on the submission form and reassign the “corresponding/presenting author” designation to the person that will be giving the presentation. "Co-Presenters" are not permitted.

Placement Notification

In late February 2024, the corresponding/presenting author of each abstract will be notified by email of the placement decision. If the abstract is accepted, this email will state the session and format to which it has been assigned and provide information on preparing the presentation.

Session placement suggestions may be entered on the submittal form. However, acceptance, final placement, and format preference cannot be guaranteed. Final decisions will be based on the best overall design of the Conference program.

Technical Program Participant Registration Requirement

All participants are expected to register and pay the applicable technical-program registration fees.

No financial assistance is available to support registration or other costs of attending the Conference. This policy is necessary because registration fees are the major source of funding for the Conference and a significant percentage of registrants will make presentations or chair sessions.
