Abstract Deadline


About Submitting Your Abstract:

You are invited to submit an abstract for your proposed presentation. Submitted abstracts should enhance the technical discussion of the initiatives and technology supporting the various engineering disciplines concerned with air, space and land transportation.

Conference Themes and Topics can be found below.

Rules For Submitting Abstracts

  • Authors should submit abstracts for consideration by completing the Online Abstract Submittal Form, accessible by clicking on the button at the top of this page. The abstract text should be within 200-500 words.

  • Submittals must include the following:
    • Title of the technical presentation, description of content, conclusions and significance of proposed presentation.
    • Name, title, organization, address, telephone number, fax number and email address of the author(s).
    • Name of the track to which the author is responding (i.e., Advanced Manufacturing and Lessons Learned)

  • At the time of abstract submission, authors will be asked to certify that the submitted abstract is unclassified, non-proprietary and approved for public release and unlimited distribution.

  • WAMS 2023 is unclassified and open attendance. Authors presenting papers will be responsible for obtaining all necessary approvals and releases prior to the Conference.
  • Abstracts must be received no later than September 29, 2023. Abstract reviewers request that, in order to facilitate technical review, abstracts be submitted as soon as possible. A late submission will not allow time for proper review by the conference planning/review committee and may result in the rejection of the abstract.

  • Due to the submission deadline extension, notice of abstract acceptance/denial will be distributed via email by late October 2023. Only the primary submitting author will be sent this acceptance/non-acceptance email and it will be the author’s responsibility to notify any co-authors.

  • Authors presenting papers at WAMS 2023 are REQUIRED to register for the conference and pay the associated conference registration fee. No Exceptions. Speakers are also REQUIRED to attend the Conference in person.

  • Please Note - All General Session Presentations given at the conference will be made available as PDFs on the WAMS Proceedings Page.


Presentation Requirements for Accepted Abstracts

Upon acceptance of your presentation, you will be requested to submit final presentation materials to Arctos in electronic format via the WAMS Conference Speaker Log-in, using the Microsoft Office family of applications (PowerPoint preferred method) or PDF. The final presentation must be received by January 31, 2024. Minor revisions submitted after that date will be considered but may not be included in the Conference materials. This will facilitate the preparation of Conference proceedings which will be posted on the Conference website. Once you receive an acceptance letter you will be provided with additional instructions for your presentation preparation and additional information for speakers.

  • Presentation received by January 31, 2024
  • Presentation for loading onto session computers
  • Each presenter must not exceed 30 minutes (including Q&A time).
  • Accept speaking engagement; upload abstract to be linked to agenda
  • Presentations that are accepted must participate at the time scheduled by the WAMS Conference Committee.
  • If your abstract is selected and you accept, you will be considered as an attending participant to the Conference and will be required to pay the full registration as long as you are approved to attend the event by your management.
  • Authors presenting papers will be responsible for obtaining all necessary approvals and releases. This will include giving a presentation at the Conference and for dissemination on the website.


Presentation Guidelines

  • Preferred Presentation Format:
    16:9 Ratio, Power Point (PPT) File with any video files imbedded. Also acceptable - 4:3 Ratio, and PDF files.
  • Fonts should be size 16 or higher (unless the text is a footnote or disclaimer). One tip to test if the font of your presentation is big enough is to print a random page of your presentation, place it on the floor, and see if you can read it when you stand up.
  • Send your presentation ahead of time so it can be previewed for any technical issues. Also take advantage of speaker review times to review your presentation on the equipment you will be using for presentation and in the room where you will present. This should ensure that no problems will occur on the day of your presentation.
  • Always bring a backup copy of your presentation with you, just in case your main copy is lost or damaged.
