Call for Abstracts



For those who wish to deliver a 20-minute presentation at the conference, we ask that you kindly provide us with a title and abstract before May 15, 2014.

Plenary speakers are requested to provide a title and abstract as well.

The organizing committee will review all (non-plenary) abstracts to decide on suitability of presentations.  Participants will be notified by email once a decision has been made.


  • The conference language is English.  All abstracts and presentations should be in English.
  • Only abstracts submitted through our web-based service can be accepted (see link below).  
  • The format for abstract submission is PDF. 
  • An abstract has a lead author (the presenter) and possibly one or more co-authors. The lead author should provide his or her full name, affiliation, and a valid email address.  We ask that you follow closely the format indicated in the sample abstract found here.  
  • All communication regarding an abstract will be with the lead author.
  • All selected abstracts will be published in the conference program booklet.
  • 20-minute lectures may be delivered in any format, including chalkboard/whiteboard.
  • Plenary lectures cannot be delivered in chalkboard/whiteboard format due to the size of the Connelly Center cinema.  All other lecture formats are available, including overhead projector.
