Here are answers to frequently asked questions about submitting an abstract:
What is the format of the submission? Submissions are made through the Call for Abstracts website form. You will be asked to provide:
Presentation/Session title and description
Abstract text (500-550 words)
Co-presenter names (can be added or modified later)
Will abstract submissions from previous CITE conferences be considered? No. We invite presenters who were accepted for the cancelled 2020 CITE Annual Conference in Vancouver to re-submit. Please note that abstracts that were accepted for the Vancouver conference will not automatically be accepted for the 2022 conference.
Are the submissions for academic papers only? No. You are welcome to submit presentations of any type.
Is an accompanying paper required? You are welcome to submit an accompanying paper as part of your submission but it is not required. The paper can be made available to attendees.
Can the submissions be a group work? Yes, co-presenters are welcome in the technical program. Please note that all presenters will be required to register for the conference.
What is the evaluation criteria? Abstracts will be evaluated by a group of subject area experts and will be based largely on the relevance of the topic and the quality of the submission. Submissions that are clearly marketing a product or service are discouraged.
