Abstract submission is now closed for the 2014 Purdue Conferences. If you would like to inquire about submitting an abstract after the deadline, please contact Kim Stockment for more information.

The Presenting Author will be notified of abstract acceptance or rejection in February of 2014 and will be given further instructions for manuscript preparation, conference registration and VISA requests.

Tips for a successful abstract:

  • Limit to 200-500 words
  • Full sentences featuring:
    • Motivation
    • What was done
    • Expected benefits of what was done

Abstracts and papers must be written in English. Abstracts are due on January 3, 2014. Do not send a duplicate copy of the abstract by email. Please provide as much information about each author as possible, list their full names as they want it to appear in the program and also indicate the part of the name to be used in the author index. An acknowledgement e-mail for your submission will be sent to the required presenting Author with a Reference Number immediately after your abstract is received. Please pick a topic from any conference. It may be necessary to reassign your abstract to other conferences after it is reviewed. If this happens, you will be notified of the reassignment. 

*If you are having trouble submitting an abstract online, please refer to our "How To Submit your Abstract" guidesheet.
