Updated Abstracts

Updated Abstracts—Due March 22, 2021

Please consider whether your abstract may need to be updated for purposes of the abstract collection.

Carefully review the abstract you submitted in summer 2019 and consider whether changes are needed in the title, author list and text to bring it up to date. For example, if the original abstract said “Sampling will begin in August 2019,” the text should be updated to reflect the anticipated status as of the Conference presentation. Title and author list revisions received by the due date will be reflected in the citation for your presentation in the Final Program.

Abstracts for all presentations will be compiled and distributed online for use by Conference registrants in planning which sessions and presentations to attend. In addition, all abstracts will be included in the Proceedings.

Due Date

Monday, March 22, 2021


Note: Updated abstracts received after this date will be included in the Proceedings only, not the abstract collection distributed before the Conference. 

General Guidelines

The abstract should provide a succinct, up-to-date preview of your planned presentation. Revise the title if necessary to more accurately represent the material. The abstract should outline the types of data that will be presented and mention any unusual circumstances associated with the work. Discuss how results can be used in other applications. Both your abstract and your presentation should focus on technical results, not commercial or promotional aspects. 



The format requirements for updated abstracts are the same as for the original abstracts. Abstracts must be in English, cannot exceed one standard-size page (8.5”x11”), and are to be submitted as Microsoft Word® files. See the example abstract for format specifications. 

File Naming Updated Abstracts

Updated abstract file names must be constructed as follows:


Chlor#[abstract number][presenter’s last name]UpdAbs


For example, the file submitted for abstract number 999, to be presented by someone whose last name is Jones, would have the following file name and extension: Chlor#999JonesUpdAbs.doc


Your abstract number was provided in the acceptance notification email you received from the Conference Office.


All presenters (platform and poster) will receive submission links and instructions for updated abstracts by February 19, 2021.


As a reminder, the following terms were agreed to by the submitter upon submission of the original abstract and also apply to updated abstracts:

  • By submitting the abstract, you confirmed that the proposed presentation is original and that you obtained any necessary permission (e.g., client approval, copyright) for the content.
  • Battelle will include the abstract in the abstract collection, any online application (released shortly before the Conference), and the proceedings (released after the Conference).
