Submission Guide

1. Adhere to Minimum Proposal Submission Length / Requirements

All presentation categories have page length minimums and maximums. Please adhere to the posted page length guidelines for each conference and presentation type. In most cases, an abstract is not sufficient to adequately evaluate a paper for presentation.

Please note that reviewers may reject submissions if the written product shows exceedingly poor grammar or structure. For this reason, all papers and presentations—especially those written by non-native English speakers—should be proofread or copyedited prior to submission.

2. Proposal Submission Form

To send a proposal submission, complete and submit this form. (Do not mail or fax the form itself.)

NOTE: Only include author names on the submission form fields. Do not include the author name(s) and information in the uploaded submission file. All reviews are blind. After acceptance, prior to the early registration deadline, upload your final version and include this section.

3. Receipt Email & Changes:

After submitting, you should within a few minutes receive and acknowledgement via email. If your e-mail account has a restriction for Spam or a firewall, please update your account to accept e-mail from [email protected]

OR if you don’t receive an acknowledgement email,

  • log back into the submission area
  • select ‘Edit Previous Submission’ on the menu to view your proposal.

You also may use the same web site to make changes in the title, authors, etc. without informing the conference.
