Call for Abstracts now closed. Preliminary Program coming soon.
Abstract Submission: 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. To be considered for placement in the program,
please go to the link given below to connect to the abstract
submittal form. ABSTRACTS MUST BE RECEIVED VIA THE WEB
SITE ON OR BEFORE OCTOBER 9, 2012. Membership in AWRA
is encouraged but is not a requirement for presentation.
All conference presenters are required to pay the appropriate
conference registration fee. If your abstract is accepted,
you will be given the opportunity to publish a short paper
in the Conference Proceedings (see below for more information.)
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.
Review: Soon after the October 9 deadline,
abstracts will be reviewed by the Technical 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. Abstracts
received after the deadline may not be accepted.
Notification of Acceptance/Placement: Acceptance
notification will be made via email to the corresponding
author by the end of October 2012.
Conference Proceedings: An online proceedings of
short papers (or abstracts if you do not wish to write a
paper) will be produced for this Conference. Instructions
for this will be located on the AWRA website.
Cancellation Policy: Late cancellations and failures
to give scheduled presentations are disruptive and leave
gaps in the program that are distracting to all attendees.
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.
If cancellation is unavoidable, the presenter should notify
Patricia Reid at firstname.lastname@example.org
by MARCH 5, 2013 otherwise a fee will be charged.
The late cancellation/no show fees may be waived on a case
by case basis by contacting Patricia Reid.

Note: Payment of the abstract fee must be made, before abstract submission can be completed.
