All ESA members and non-members may give one invited (symposium) and one contributed (10-minute paper or poster) presentation at the Annual Meeting.
Individuals may be co-authors of any number of contributed papers or poster presentations.
All presenters must be registered for the Annual Meeting to participate.
Each screen has two parts:
Read each screen completely before moving to the next screen.
As you move from screen to screen, occasionally a screen will “flash” and disappear. Don’t be concerned—what disappeared was either instructions (you can always get back to them) or a confirmation screen. You will have plenty of opportunities to confirm the information throughout the process.
Make note of your submission’s ID number and password. All edits and revisions must be complete by June 16.
If you make an error or omission after you’ve moved on to the next screen, do not use the Internet browser back button. You will become lost in the system. Instead, select “How to Submit, Modify, or Withdraw a Submission from the navigation bar on the left, and use your Internet browser back button to return to your session screen.
click “Refresh.” This will take you to the beginning, and you will lose the data you have entered.
After you have finished entering the information, you will receive an e-mail confirmation. If you receive more than one confirmation for the same submission, you’ve duplicated the submission, and need to delete one of the submissions.
For assistance or to report technical problems, contact Confex at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-401-334-0220.

The following are step-by-step instructions to lead you through the submission process. Keep these instructions handy.Session Selection:At the bottom of the first screen, click on one of the following:
Read the sample abstract also on that page. If you have already submitted a paper and need to access it again, log in at the bottom of that page (below the sample abstract).
Note: Your ID number and password are assigned automatically and may be found at the top of the page (at the left). Write these down. They will also be e-mailed to you as part of your confirmation.
Enter the title of your submission. Follow the instructions on the screen to insert special characters.
* The database is built as information is entered into the system. It is not the ESA membership database.
The author number at the top of the screen indicates the order in which all authors are listed.
To edit Authors, click on the author’s name in the Submission Control Panel. Use this screen to edit.
To enter many authors from the same institution, click on the “Authors from the Same Institution” box, and enter as many authors as needed.
E-mail addresses will appear in the program book this year. Please be sure the e-mail addresses you enter are current.
The street addresses, telephone numbers, and fax numbers you enter for the authors will NOT appear in the program. However, the information is very important, so you must enter it. ESA will create a database of this information for members interested in contacting authors. This information also will be used to return Student Competition judging forms.
