2013 AWRA Annual Water Resources Conference
Abstract Submission


To be considered for placement in the program, please go to the link given to the right to connect to the abstract submittal form. ABSTRACTS MUST BE RECEIVED VIA THE WEB SITE ON OR BEFORE May 10, 2013. Membership in AWRA is encouraged but is not a requirement for presentation.

A processing fee of $25 will be charged for each abstract submitted payable upon submission of the abstract. The fee is non-refundable and will not be credited toward the cost of the presenter's conference registration fee. Abstracts are being sought for oral presentations, panels and posters covering a wide range of topics.

Anyone interested in organizing a panel should contact Michael Campana (aquadoc@oregonstate.edu) or Brenda Bateman (brenda.o.bateman@state.or.us), the Technical Program Co-Chairs, for more information.

Review of Abstracts and Notification of Acceptance
Soon after the May 10, 2013 deadline, abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee for originality, technical merit, currency, and relevance to the Conference topics. Authors' suggestions for topic and format placement (oral, panel or poster) will be considered, but the Committee will make the final decision. The quality of the submitted abstract will be viewed as an indication of the quality of the presentation. Previous performance or failure to give timely notification of cancellation at previous annual and specialty conferences may influence the decision for acceptance. Abstracts received after the deadline may not be considered or accepted.

Acceptance notification will be made via email to the corresponding author by mid June 2013. Submitted and accepted abstracts will be included in the online Conference Preliminary Program and the online Conference Final Program (not the printed Final Program).

Cancellation Policy
Before submitting an abstract, authors should be confident that they will attend the meeting and make the presentation. If the presenter finds he/she can't attend then they should attempt to find another person to make the presentation. Late cancellations and failures to give scheduled presentations are disruptive and leave gaps in the program that are distracting to all attendees. If cancellation is unavoidable, the presenter should notify Patricia Reid at pat@awra.org by Oct. 1, 2013. Cancellations made after this date will be assessed a cancellation fee.
