New Announcement as of June 13, 2022:
Traditionally, USCID announces their call for papers which includes publication. This year, we would like to extend the solicitation for a non-publication track. With Track 1, the traditional track, we will follow the same standard of practice as usual. With Track 2, this new track, if you have a topic you'd like to present to conference attendees in October but would not like to be published, please send a detailed outline of your topic and points by August 1st to this email address. You will not be published, but the conference committee will sift through these topics as well as those of Track 1 to determine if the Track 2 topics are a good fit for the conference. Please do not submit any presentations with a sales pitch. These are informational only sessions.
We have also extended our call for papers deadline for Track 1. Please have all abstracts turned into this email Amber Weber, firstname.lastname@example.org, by end of day June 24th.
