The abstract submission site is open for contributed papers only. If you are an invited speaker, please DO NOT use this abstract site for your invited talk.
Please read the below submission guidelines carefully before submitting an abstract.
General Submission Guidelines
The SciX Paper Submission Site is a user-friendly submission portal with easy to view tasks and navigation to simplify your submission process.
Authors and Author List
The Submitter will automatically be listed as the Presenting Author. This can be edited within your profile as needed.
*If Presenting author and corresponding author are the same person, please only list ONCE as the Presenting Author. Authors will be listed in the order submitted.
Proper Author Profile Details:
When completing an author profile be sure to keep affiliation names consistent as the system does not detect authors from the same organization automatically. The system will not know that UCLA and University of California, Los Angeles are the same and will display them separately in the author/affiliation list.
Submit Final Abstract
When you have completed all the tasks, and are sure that your submission is complete and in final form, perform the following two steps:
1) click the Save Abstract button.
2) click on the SUBMIT button.
If you do not click the ‘Submit’ button your abstract will remain incomplete.
After you submit your abstract, you will receive an email confirmation within one business day of submitting your abstract. If you do not receive an email confirmation within 24 hours, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Within the email text, please include your Paper Submission ID number and title (found by clicking “Preview Paper Submission” on the Home Page). Please remember to check your junk mail / spam folder first.
Paper Submission Status
A helpful tip to check that your abstract was submitted successfully is to look at the "Paper Submission Status" under the title
Submitted abstracts may be edited until the SciX Submission deadline occurs, for Orals that is April 30th, and for Posters July 31st. Corrections and/or changes will not be accepted after these respective dates. To make changes to your abstract(s), log in to the SciX Paper Submission Site with your credentials.
To withdraw your abstract prior to the submission deadline, log in to the SciX Paper Submission Site with your credentials. Access the submission you wish to withdraw, click on the title of your submission, and change the 'Submission Status' to Withdrawn. To withdraw after the submission deadline, please email the FACSS Office at email@example.com with your Paper Submission ID and title.
Oral abstracts are reviewed after the April 30th deadline. Please allow time for this review process before you ask about your abstract submission. Final notifications will be sent in June.
Each abstract will be included in the Conference app under its assigned session. An abstract book will also be provided on the SciX Conference website. This will be posted closer to the conference for attendees and non-attendees to view before the conference begins.
Consideration for Awards and Other Program Opportunities
During the paper submission process, you will have the opportunity to request to be considered for the following awards. You will also have the option to opt out.
1. The FACSS Innovations Award
2. Poster Slam Session - NEW THIS YEAR!
3. The SAS Student Poster Award
There are other award opportunities to apply for as well. Please visit the Awards Page. Most awards require a submission to be completed first. If you are a student, you will automatically be entered for consideration for daily FACSS student poster awards.
