About Submitting an Abstract

Abstracts for Paper and Presentation format should be 300 to 500 words in length and provide details on the background of the issue(s) addressed, objectives of the work described, methodology applied and conclusions reached. All abstracts must be submitted in electronic format. If additional presentation materials are already available, these may also be submitted and will be considered as part of the review process.

Abstracts will be reviewed for quality, theme relevance, general interest, and overall significance. Collaborative papers and presentations are encouraged and will be given preference when the topic bridges multiple areas (e.g. transportation’s effect on healthcare could readily include both transportation and healthcare professionals). The strong preference is to have papers that are new, original or significantly different from any others that the author may have submitted to other organizations for presentation or publication. If this is not the case with your submission, please provide an explanation as to what other organizations this paper has been submitted to and why you would like this material to be considered without significant modifications (exceptions will be taken into account). Note: submissions that favor special interests or are commercial in nature will not be considered for the technical session. Please email edmonton2018_abstracts@cite7.org for additional information.

Those authors whose abstracts receive tentative approval are asked to submit either a full paper or draft presentation for review of quality, theme relevance, general interest, and overall significance. Proposed papers and presentations must also be new, original or significantly different from any other that the author may have submitted to other organizations for presentation or publication.

Following this final review, the author will be: (1) conditionally accepted; (2) conditionally accepted based on specific revisions being made; or (3) rejected. Once accepted, authors will be required to submit a full paper or draft presentation for review.

All authors will be required to adhere to format guidelines included with their tentative acceptance. Failure to abide by these guidelines may result in a paper or presentation being eliminated either from the conference session, the formal proceedings, or both.

When an author submits a paper to CITE in response to this Call for Abstracts, the document becomes the property of CITE, who is then entitled to publish it.

Conditional Acceptance

For all intents and purposes conditional acceptance, whether with or without revisions, indicates that your presentation will be included in the conference schedule. Failure to meet the terms of fulfillment could result in your paper being withdrawn from the conference schedule.
