Abstract Submission

Deadline: Wednesday, July 3, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time

Thank you for your interest in the DPP annual meeting.

The first author is the primary presenting author and is taken as a representation that he/she is expected to attend the conference. APS members may submit a contributed abstract for which a non-member is listed as first author.

Multiple Abstract Submissions

  • An invited speaker is allowed one additional abstract submission.
  • An author who submits an abstract in a mini-conference is allowed one additional abstract submission.
  • An author who submits an education and outreach abstract is allowed one additional abstract submission.
  • Multiple contributed oral or poster abstracts with the same first author will have one paper assigned to the regular session and all others to the Supplemental Poster Session on Friday morning.

Submit abstracts online at the Submit an Abstract web page.

Select the 61st Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics and follow the step by step instructions. Log in first using your APS web account. If you are new to APS create your web account. If you’ve attended an APS meeting or are a former APS member create your web account with your APS ID number. Select the abstract format and proceed.

Contributed abstract body text is approximately 1300 characters (about 250 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. Review Tips for Writing a Title and Abstract.

To speed up submission know the number of authors and select the appropriate Sorting Category and proofread the abstract.

If you encounter any problems submitting your abstract contact the APS Abstract Help Line (abs-help@aps.org), Monday-Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm Eastern Daylight Time.

Undergraduate or High School Students Doing Research
There will be a special afternoon poster session, “Undergraduate/High School Research” on Tuesday, October 22. For the seventeenth year, DPP will present an outstanding poster award to a number of undergraduate students. This poster session provides an opportunity for students to present results from summer and thesis research, as well as to 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 either 14.1 (High-school research) or 14.2 (Undergraduate research) sorting category.

If you have questions about the Undergraduate/High School Poster Session, please contact Saralyn Stewart (stewart@physics.utexas.edu).

DPP will waive the registration fee for undergraduate or high school student presenters. Indicate “undergrad” or “high school student” on the downloaded Registration Form, scan it and email it to the APS Registrar. Registrar contact information is listed 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.
