Abstract Submission

Final Call – Latebreaking Poster Abstracts
Due May 8, 2014 at 5:00 PM Eastern / 2:00 PM Pacific

The final opportunity to submit an abstract for 2014 will be the Latebreaking Poster call. This call will open by early April. In the meantime, you can prepare your abstract based on some other very similar calls. The format and guidelines are exactly the same as for contributed posters. The key difference is that all accepted Latebreaking Posters will be scheduled for presentation the morning of Friday, August 15th. It’s been a large session in recent years (over 200 posters) and free coffee and pastries will be provided. You can also look at last year’s Latebreaking Poster call as a reference.

About Contributed Abstracts
Contributed oral (COS) and poster (PS) sessions are collections of submitted abstracts each organized around a common concept or process, tool or application, subdiscipline, study taxon, or ecosystem. Contributed abstract authors rank their preferred session topics as part of the abstract submission process, and the Program Committee then uses these rankings to organize each year’s accepted abstracts into sessions.

Posters and talks are equally important and have the same abstract content, but the presentations differ in format and scheduling. Whether an abstract is for a talk or a poster is indicated by the author at the time of abstract submission.

About Invited Abstracts
These are abstracts submitted by speakers who have been invited by a session organizer to present in a specified Symposium, Organized Oral Session, Organized Poster Session or Ignite ESA Session. If you’re presenting in one of these sessions, you’ll be invited by an organizer in charge of the session (usually in the fall or winter) and will receive an email with detailed instructions and a unique abstract submission link. These sessions are proposed by session organizers, reviewed by peers, and accepted by the Program Committee. If you’re not sure if you’re in one of these sessions, you’re most likely not and will need to submit to the contributed call.

These speakers were emailed specific instructions and a unique submission link in mid January.
