October 10-11, 2020, Virtual


July 16, 2020

Please note that the abstract submission portal is now closed. All complete submissions will now undergo the review process. We thank you for your participation in this important aspect of SIU 2020. Submitters will be notified of their abstract status in late August 2020.

All accepted abstracts will be published on SIU Academy, in digital ePoster format (no abstract book will be produced). To ensure your abstract is eligible for submission, please carefully review the abstract submission guidelines. 

To be considered for Best ePoster, authors may submit 3 PowerPoint (PPT) slides with 2 minutes of audio voiceover for review via the submission site. Please ensure that all submissions are blinded for review, i.e. author’s name and/or institution name/logo are not to be included.

For those who have already submitted a paper, you may still access the submission website. Please attach your PPT slides with audio voiceover by editing the completed submission form before the extended deadline, July 15, 2020. Please do not create a new submission from scratch.
