  • Submitter and Speaker Notification – All submitters and proposed participants will be notified via email February 2023 on the status of their submission.

The online submission process times out after 20 minutes. We recommend that you save your submission after each step. You can retrieve your submission and complete it at any time by logging back into the system.

The best approach is to download the offline submission form for the appropriate path you are submitting to in order to determine the information you need to provide in advance. We recommend that you first fill in the form offline and then copy and paste your responses into the online submission form. This option is the best approach to avoid losing your valuable work and information.

We strongly recommend that you first review our Tips for Submission before developing your session proposal. Detail and diversity are extremely important in helping the Program Committee differentiate between the perspective and expertise of the many submissions they review.
