Call for Papers
Submission Form

Would you like to be a presenter at the 2024 IWC in Las Vegas, Nevada?

Use this form to submit an abstract of your paper.  While abstracts should include specific details, they are executive summaries of your paper.

Abstract length should be a minimum of 150 words, with a maximum of 400 words, plus any supporting data. Papers should describe completed studies, programs or descriptions of work in progress with significant intermediate results. Presentations of the papers at the conference are allowed 25 minutes in length, followed by a 10-minute prepared discussion by a third-party expert. Case histories discussing solutions to problems are desirable, especially by end-users. Papers describing new technical advancements, including supporting data, are particularly welcome.

Final sessions will be decided on the basis of abstracts submitted.

Deadline to Submit your Abstract is March 22, 2024!
