Virtual Paper Submission Guidelines
Please read the below guidelines carefully before submitting an abstract as significant changes have been made.
The SciX Paper Submission Site is a user-friendly submission portal with easy to view tasks and navigation to simplify your submission process.
NEW! Submission Types
Mini Oral with Poster – For the SciX 2020 virtual meeting, submitting for a poster includes agreeing to pre-record a 5 min audio clip to accompany your poster image. You will receive recording instructions when you receive notice of your acceptance status, and the deadline will be in mid-September.
Instructions for already submitted papers
If you previously submitted an abstract as Oral, Oral or Poster, or Poster, and want to convert your abstract to a Mini Oral with Poster, please carefully follow the steps below.
If you previously submitted an abstract as Oral, Oral or Poster, or Poster, and DO NOT want to be considered for SciX 2020, please see below.
Instructions for NEW Submissions
To submit a Mini Oral with Poster, you will need to be registered first. Registration will open the week of August 3. Please visit the registration page on the SciX website to register.
*For ALREADY SUBMITTED ABSTRACTS (not withdrawing): You still need to log in and complete the registration task by August 12. If you are not registered by that date, your submission will be withdrawn.
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
