Abstract Changes, Corrections, and Withdrawal

  • Abstract content changes to your accepted entry in the program must be submitted to the conference management and approved by the Program Chairs before August 1, 2024. Please include your Abstract Control ID or Presentation ID in the subject line of your email.
  • After August 1, 2024, only requests to the presenting author will be considered.
  • Changes to the presenting author can only be requested by the abstract submitter (usually the corresponding author).
  • If you need to withdraw your abstract, please contact Centennial Conferences via e-mail. Please include the reason for withdrawing and provide your Abstract Control ID or Presentation ID in the e-mail subject line.

Manuscript Consideration

  • Authors are invited to submit a manuscript to the special conference issue of the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity (TAS).
  • Manuscript submission is not a requirement of making a presentation at the conference.
  • Presentation of your work in the published ASC 2024 program is required for a manuscript to be considered for peer review.
    • The presentation should be given at the appointed time in the program, by the appointed presenter.
    • For posters, presentation means that an author is available during the duration of the poster session to discuss the work and answer questions. Posting of the pages of the manuscript does not constitute presentation.
    • Presentation does not guarantee a published manuscript.
  • Changes to the program, which have been approved by the ASC 2024 Program Chairs, will be allowed for submitted manuscripts.

Recommendations for Presentation Clarity

  • A concise and to-the-point title.
  • Organized to guide the observer through information in a logical order.
  • Provides the motivation, objectives and approach of the research.
  • Summarizes the key results and highlights the impact of the work.
  • Proper use of colors, graphics, figures, text and white space.
  • Moderate use of long text blocks.
  • Proper text scaling for comfortable viewing by a number of people at the same time from a distance of about 3 feet (~ 1 meter).
  • To ensure visual effectiveness of your poster, use large lettering and a minimum of text. Use of color can visually enhance your poster.
  • Efficient use of graphics to convey complex information.

Recommendations for Technical Merit

  • Plan your poster to be in logical sequence, i.e., introduction, study design and methods, data collected, conclusion.
  • The work presented is novel (e.g., novel material, novel device, novel conversion mechanism, novel theoretical approach, novel characterization method, etc.).
  • Systematic analysis conducted to arrive at results.
  • Conclusions supported by the data.
