Summaries will follow the format for typical ANS transactions (found here). Please use either one of the following templates to begin:

Summaries will be submitted online through the ANS national EPSR system (see here) for examples. This will become available by November 1st.

Summaries may either be submitted for poster or podium presentations. Both submissions will follow the same timeline. Submitting a summary for one of these presentations does not also include you into the innovation competition

Paper Reviews

After papers are submitted each will be reviewed and authors will recieve feedback on his or her paper. After authors will be presented with one of the following options:

  • Accept with no revision needed (uncommon).
  • Revise and resubmit (most common). Consider what the reviewer has to say and make changes accordingly
  • Reject (very uncommon). This may only occur if there is clear plagraism or the paper has zero relevance to the conference (e.g. a review of 19th century French poetry)
