Symposia Submissions

Submission Date: Applications for symposia at SCAPPS 2023 will be open on May 15th and close May 29th, 2023 at 11:59pm EST.

Submission Format: Each abstract, including the lead abstract, should follow the standard SCAPPS abstract guidelines. The lead abstract should be presented on the first page with the subsequent individual abstracts on separate pages. Each abstract should include author and co-author information. Submissions should include researchers from a range of institutions and career stage. If you have a moderator or discussant in mind, please also include their name and affiliation on the first page of the submission.

Application Process: The lead member will submit all abstracts on behalf of symposium members. That is, the lead will submit a symposium application including an overview abstract and all individual abstracts. Each individual contributor should not submit duplicate abstracts.

Decision/Notification Process: Decisions on symposia that will be incorporated into the program (or not) will be made and communicated via email to the lead author.  Abstracts submitted as part of symposia that have not been accepted into the program may be resubmitted for consideration as a verbal or poster presentation at the authors’ discretion. These abstracts will not be automatically considered for other presentation formats and must be resubmitted during the appropriate time window.

Notification of Decision: Decisions on symposia acceptances will be made by June 16th, 2023.
