All presenters (including invited speakers) must submit a 1-2 page PDF abstract that describes the approach and main findings of the work to be presented. This abstract, if the presentation is accepted by the track chair and program committee, will be published in the electronic abstract book. Please adhere to the Guidelines for Abstracts given below.


  • Length: 1-2 pages including all figures and text.
  • Format: 8.5 x 11 inch paper (Please use US standard letter paper;  if you use A4 size paper, the bottom of the text may get cut off in production), no page numbers or running heading/footers (these will be added during production of the abstract book), 1" margins.
  • Font: Arial or Helvetica.
  • Title: 14 pt. bold, do not use all caps, include a blank line after the title.
  • Authors and affiliations: 12 pt. italic, include email address for corresponding author and underline presenting author, include 2 blank lines after the author list.
  • Abstract text: 12 pt. single spaced, justified right margin (so the text appears as a block without ragged edges).
