Submission Guidelines


Abstract Submission (oral presentation, poster presentation, or symposium)


Please read all the instructions before completing your registration, even if you have been attending the conference in the past, and especially if you are submitting a symposium.


Criteria for Approval:


The proposal process is competitive. All submissions will be blindly reviewed and evaluated by members of the conference Scientific Program Committee. The accept or reject decision is at the discretion of the Committee. Commercial promotion and funding requests are not appropriate in submission of abstracts and during scientific presentations. Commercial promotion of materials is appropriate for exhibitors. If your presentation is accepted, you are required to register for the full conference.


Limits on first authorship:


There is a limit of two submissions per first author for Oral presentations and speakers presenting as part of a Symposium. However, there is no limit on other forms of participation such as discussant, symposium chair, co-author, or poster presenter.


Conference language:


English is the official language of the conference. There will not be any simultaneous translation services unless it is provided by the speaker. Titles and abstracts of each submission are in English. Please check spelling and grammar, as your abstract will be printed in the conference syllabus. If English is not your native language, please have your paper proofread by a native speaker, preferably one who is familiar with the described technology.


Presentation Formats (note, the length of all abstracts is limited to 600 words):


You can submit abstracts for three types of presentations:  Oral presentation (20 minutes), Symposium (1-2 hours, multiple speakers), or Poster presentation. Please do not include references in the abstract submission.


– Oral Presentations:
An oral presentation is where individual speakers present their research in 15 minutes, including about 5 minutes of questions from the audience.  It is the responsibility of the CYPSY24 organizers to regroup orals together based on the set of available keywords and topics selected. In preparing your 600-word abstract, please consider the following as it will be used for reviewing your submission: a) the title should be descriptive as this will be listed without the abstract on some of the convention material and attendees often build their convention schedules based on titles, b) mention previous research on the topics so reviewers and conference attendees can ensure you are presenting research that has not been presented or published elsewhere (if it is an extension from previously presented material, make it explicitly clear), c) describe your sample, method and results explicitly, d) focus primarily on the method and results than to present the context and the conclusion, and e) assume half of those who will read your abstract do not know your research field and the other half will be expert in your domain.


– Symposiums (sometimes referred to as panel session in other venues):
A symposium is a focused session in which individual speakers present their research on a common or related issue. A symposium should have the dual goal of providing diversity of perspective and integrating those perspectives into a meaningful whole. A symposium includes a chair, four to five presenters, and a discussant (optional). It is the responsibility of the chair of a symposium to recruit the presenters, not the CYPSY24 organizers. Symposiums will be scheduled in 60 or 90-minute time slots. Presenters should allow at least 10 minutes for discussion with the audience. The exact duration of symposium is at the discretion of the conference organizers and is based on the number of authors in a symposium, with each presentation lasting less than 20 minutes, including questions from the audience. All abstracts in a symposium will be assessed together (i.e., all abstracts will be accepted or rejected together). The chair of a symposium must submit a general abstract for the symposium, even if the chair is also presenting a talk in that symposium.


To submit a Symposium, or in a Symposium, please note the following information.


In the section Type of Submission / Format, one option is entitled Symposium-General abstract. This section is for the chair of a symposium. It is used for assessing the symposium and regrouping all presentations together. Your 600-word abstract must explicitly include the following sections: (a) Title of your symposium, (b) Title of all the presentations in your symposium (i.e., the title the authors will use in their own submissions), (c) Name of all presenters in your symposium (not all authors on all talks, only the name of the author that will submit an abstract), and (d) the name of your discussant, if any (note the discussant does NOT have to submit an abstract but MUST register to the conference in order to participate). The name of the discussant can be added or communicated later to the conference organizers. When asked to list the authors (e.g., Author 1), ONLY enter the information for the symposium chair. Note that your title should be descriptive as this will be listed without the abstract on some of the convention material and attendees often build their convention schedules based on titles.


For all presenters for a specific symposium: In the section Type of Submission / Format, one option is entitled Symposium. This is where you enter the abstract of your presentation in a symposium. You do not need to refer to the general title of the symposium. In preparing your 600-word abstract, please consider the following as it will be used for reviewing your submission: the title should be descriptive as this will be listed without the abstract on some of the convention material and attendees often build their convention schedules based on titles, mention previous research on the topics so reviewers and conference attendees can ensure you are presenting research that has not been presented or published elsewhere (if it is an extension from previously presented material, make it explicitly clear), describe your sample, method and results explicitly, use significantly more space to describe the method and results than to present the context and the conclusion, assume half of those who will read your abstract do not know your research field and the other half will be expert in your domain.


– Posters:
Posters offer the opportunity to present data and have substantive discussions with interested colleagues. The audience circulates among the posters, stopping to discuss research of particular interest to them. Authors present their research using a visual medium with key information displayed on a free-standing bulletin board that is no larger than 1.5 meters (about 5 feet) wide X 1 meter high (about 3.25 feet). No audio/visual equipment can be used. In preparing your 600-word abstract, please consider the following as it will be used for reviewing your submission: a) the title should be descriptive as this will be listed without the abstract on some of the convention material and attendees often build their convention schedules based on titles, b) mention previous research on the topics so reviewers and conference attendees can ensure you are presenting research that has not been presented or published elsewhere (if it is an extension from previously presented material, make it explicitly clear), c) describe your sample, method and results explicitly, d) use significantly more space to describe the method and results than to present the context and the conclusion, and e) assume half of those who will read your abstract do not know your research field and the other half will be expert in your domain.


Other information that will be requested in the submission process:


Refusing Oral being reclassified as a poster. In some cases, a submission for an Oral presentation could be rejected as an oral but be accepted if it had been submitted as a Poster. If you prefer that rejection of your Oral does not give you the chance to be considered for a Poster, you will be invited to express your preference when submitting. Your choice will not be displayed to the reviewers and will have no impact on their decision.


Work in progress. We accept work in progress at the CYPSY24 conference. However, authors must mention it in their abstract and by checking the appropriate box on the submission form.


Approved by an ethics committee. You will be invited to confirm if your study has been approved by an ethics committee, if approval was not required (e.g., data was gathered from the public domain, simulation data, theoretical paper, etc.), or if the Scientific Committee should contact you to address issues about ethical approval.


Conflict of interest. If you believe that some program committee members have a potential conflict of interest that can prevent them from evaluating your work fairly, please specify names of program committee members and provide a brief explanation why, in your opinion, they should not review your paper. This information will not be shared to other reviewers.


Program Participant Registration Policy:


All program participants must register and pay the appropriate convention registration fee. This includes all speakers, session chairpersons, participants, and poster presenters. Note that a PC, LCD projector, screen, microphone and speakers will be available in each presentation room. Presenters are welcome to bring their personal laptops as well and connect to the existing hardware in each presentation room.
