The criterion for acceptance of presentation at the CRS Annual Meeting and Exposition is based on an anonymous peer-review process. The author must obtain the necessary permissions prior to submission of the abstract. A detailed description of the abstract permission and review procedures are outlined in Abstracts.
The Program Committee reserves the right to evaluate, accept, or reject any submitted abstract. The committee will determine the status (accept or reject) of all submitted abstracts and the placement (podium or poster) of all accepted abstracts. The committee may also switch abstracts to any topic category based on their evaluation and organization requirements. Remember:
- Abstract should fit within one of the scientific topics (must choose one)
- Remember to edit and proof your abstract before submitting. Early submissions are encouraged to avoid delays on the last day
- Abstract must be written in clear English
If the abstract is accepted, the designated presenting author must register by May 7, 2012, for the CRS annual meeting, July 15-18, 2012 in Quebec City, Canada, and must agree to present the abstract at the annual meeting. If the designated presenting author is not registered, the abstract will be withdrawn and will not be included in the program or 39th Annual Meeting Transactions Online.
The submitter confirms that the abstract is an original work and has not been previously published and agrees to grant license to the CRS to publish the abstract in the 39th Annual Meeting Transactions Online on June 15, 2012. By agreeing, the submitter accepts the copyright agreement. Failure to accept the copyright transfer will result in the immediate cancellation of the abstract submission.
Notification of acceptance will be e-mailed in April to the presenter only.
