Deadline: Friday, September 15, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. EDT
Note: The first author is the presenting author. If multiple abstracts with the same first author are submitted, one paper will be assigned to the regular session and all others to the Supplemental Poster Session on Friday morning. Submission of an abstract is taken as a representation by the submitter that he/she expects the first author to attend the conference. Presentation of multiple papers, whether oral or poster, by a single person is not permitted except that the presenter of a review, invited, or tutorial talk, an education and outreach paper, or a mini-conference paper is allowed one additional abstract submission in the regular meeting program.
Submit abstracts online at the Abstract Submission web page.
Select the 59th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics and follow the step by step instructions. Select the Abstract Format and Proceed.
Contributed abstract length is < 1,300 characters (about 200 words). Having numerous authors as well as overly long titles, affiliations, and footnotes can push the abstract over the character limit despite being within the limit for the abstract text itself, so check the abstract by using the Preview Abstract Layout link during the submission process.
To speed up submission know the number of authors and the Sorting Category and proofread the abstract. New users should select TEST Meeting and follow the submission instructions.
If you encounter any problems contact the APS Abstract Help Line (firstname.lastname@example.org), Monday-Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm Eastern Time.
Note: Individuals who apply for membership online should receive an email notification with a member ID number within 1-2 days. If you need to submit an abstract prior to receiving your member ID, please enter Membership Pending. Membership will be verified after submission.
Poster Session boards are freestanding, with a display area measuring four (4) feet high by eight (8) feet wide. Push-pins are provided.
There will be a special afternoon poster session, “Undergraduate/High School Research” on Tuesday, October 24. For the fifteenth year, DPP will present an outstanding poster award to undergraduate students. This poster session provides an opportunity for students to present results from summer and thesis research, as well as meet other plasma physicists, such as junior and senior researchers, and other students.
Undergraduate or high school students should submit their abstracts as contributed posters following the abstract submission procedure as outlined above. To present in the Tuesday poster session please select 14.1 or 14.2 sorting category.
If you have questions about the Undergraduate/High School Poster Session, please contact Saralyn Stewart (email@example.com).
DPP will waive the registration fee for undergraduate or high school student presenters. Indicate “undergrad” or “high school student” on the Registration Form and fax it to the number on the form.
Note: APS offers a free year to introduce undergraduate and graduate students to the American and international physics community. Join APS and select DPP as one of two units included with trial membership. Go to Membership for APS Free Trial Student Membership information.
Abstracts received after Friday, July 14, and before September 15, will be assigned to the Postdeadline Poster Session on Friday morning, October 27. After September 15, an author must bring a one-page copy of the abstract to the annual meeting and a poster board will be assigned in the Postdeadline Poster Session.
