Please read everything on this page carefully.

General Submission Guidelines

Submission Site

The SciX Paper Submission Site is a user-friendly submission portal with easy to view tasks and navigation to simplify your submission process.

Submission Types

  • Oral Submissions: These will be reviewed for acceptance by session chairs. Submitters will be notified of acceptance around mid-June.  Abstracts not assigned to an oral session will be given the opportunity to present as a poster.
  • Poster Submissions: These will be reviewed for acceptance, and notification sent when the review is complete. Specific poster session assignments will be provided to those accepted by Mid-August.
  • Oral or Poster Submissions: Submissions that would like to be considered for either an oral or poster will be reviewed for oral presentations first. If not assigned to an oral session, the submitter will be notified which poster session it has been assigned to.

    Submission Deadlines

    Oral Submissions: May 14

    Poster Submission: July 31

    Oral or Poster Submissions: May 14

    Abstract Style

    • Remember that your abstract will be published exactly as you submit it. Please check submissions carefully for typographical errors, author listing, misspellings, poor hyphenation, etc.
    • Each submission will ask for fifteen words or less to explain the significance of the contribution. This sentence will be included in the abstract as the “Novel Aspect”.
    • You will be asked to choose 2-3 categories you feel your abstracts applies to. This is how chairs will select abstracts for oral symposia.
    • The max amount of words allowed for each submission is 350.

    Authors and Author List

    The Submitter will automatically be listed as the Presenting Author. This can be edited within your profile as needed.   

    Author Order:

    1. The Presenting Author should be the FIRST name in the list. (this will default to the Submitter, but can be edited later)
    2. Non-Presenting Authors should be listed next.
    3. The Corresponding Author should be listed LAST. (unless this is the presenting author then do not repeat the name)

    *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.

    Receipt Confirmation

    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 gpozielli@scixconference.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

    • INCOMPLETE or ACTIVE means it is incomplete and will be marked as withdrawn. To complete it, make sure all the tasks show a green check mark and click ‘Save Abstract’ then “Submit”
    • COMPLETED means the submission is complete and successfully submitted.
    • WITHDRAWN means it is withdrawn and will not be reviewed.


    Submitted abstracts may be edited until the SciX Submission deadline occurs. 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.

    Withdraw Request

    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 gpozielli@scixconference.org with your Paper Submission ID and title.

    Abstract Reviews

    Abstracts are reviewed after the deadline. Please allow time for this review process before you ask about your abstract submission. Final notifications will be sent in September. 


    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.
