Call for Oral Presentations

Submission Due Date: July 15 | Organizers Notified: August 20
Oral presentations can focus on research results, lessons learned, case studies, best practices, and more. Oral presentations will be scheduled in concurrent session blocks on November 19, 20, and 21. 

Six presentations will be grouped by topic in a 90-minute time block. Each presenter will have 15 minutes total, which includes 10 minutes for the presentation, 3 minutes for audience questions, and 2 minutes to transition to the next speaker. 

Each oral presentation proposal submission requires an abstract fee. Accepted presenters must also pay the registration fee to attend the conference. There are options for reduced registration fees through volunteering and we will also have scholarships available. 

Proposals will be evaluated for inclusion based on the clarity of the abstract, the relevance of the topic, and its appeal to attendees. To submit a proposal, please complete the form below and then look for a confirmation email with a copy of your proposal after you click Submit. If you have any questions or need to make changes to your proposal, please email [email protected]. If the form does not load properly, click here

Presenters that are part of a special session will also submit their abstract using the form below. 

AFE requires a processing fee for each abstract submitted. This fee is separate from registration and required for all oral and poster presentation abstracts. The abstract fee is non-refundable and covers administrative and online costs associated with abstract submission and review, finalizing the program, and sharing your abstract/presentation on our conference app. We also hope this will increase presenter committment and reduce the logistical challenges of late cancellations.

To ensure this fee is not a barrier to participation, presenters can self-select the appropriate fee on their submission form:

  • Regular submission fee: $50
  • Discounted submission fee: $25 (available for students and anyone who needs financial assistance) 
  • Fee waiver: $0 (for people who cannot afford the fee) 

After submitting your abstract, you will receive a link to pay the fee using our online payment system.
