Submission Details

The call for abstracts will be open until August 1, 2024.

Please use the form below to submit a short abstract. Abstracts will be reviewed by the conference organizing committee in the order received, and speakers will be informed of the committee's decision as early as possible.

ISI will be organizing speakers by topic or theme into 1 hr or 1.5 hour panel segments, with 2–4 presenters per panel. At that time, additional details will be shared with the selected presenters, including the schedule for dry run sessions for speakers to test their presentations and familiarize themselves with the Zoom Events platform.

Draft presentations will need to be provided a few weeks prior to the conference. Sufficient lead time is necessary to review and organize the presentations to ensure a seamless experience for participants.
