​2020 Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission deadline is February 7, 2020

As is customary for the Division, the 2020 NED-APS program will consist of oral presentations for contributed papers. Our Division will also have an undergraduate student poster session. See below for Abstract Submission instructions.

Abstract Submissions

Abstracts must be submitted online (submission link below). Please be sure to indicate (1) if you want to have your abstract published; (2) if you will be giving a poster (undergraduate only) or oral presentation; and (3) if you will be participating in the Graduate Student Oral Presentation Competition.

All abstracts must be reviewed by all authors AND peer-reviewed by two additional people. The abstract submission is not deemed complete without your certification of these reviews on the abstract submission form.

Completed abstract submissions will be accepted in the order in which they are received. Graduate students who do not wish to participate in the competition, or whose abstracts were submitted after the 20-presentation cutoff was reached, may choose to present their abstract non-competitively during a contributed paper session. There will be a limited number of slots in the contributed paper sessions, and they will be filled as abstracts are received, so consider submitting an abstract of your original research as soon as possible.

Changes to abstract submissions and abstract withdrawal or reinstatement can only be made before the February 7​, 2020 deadline. Please preview your abstract to ensure that all affiliations, spellings, and formatting are correct.
