Tips and Tricks

When you submit an abstract to #AbSciCon22, your hard work and dedication to advancing discovery and solutions science will be viewed in-person and online by 1,000 attendees from 25+ countries in the astrobiology community. This is a community who attends AbSciCon biennially to share findings, network with others from around the world, advance astrobiology and connect over our passion for the impact of science.

Abstracts should focus on scientific results and/or their applications.

Steps for submitting an abstract

Please provide the following information when submitting your abstract by 19 January 2022:

The abstract title is limited to 300 characters (including punctuation, but not spaces). The abstract title MUST be entered in initial upper case, for example: Mark the Dates of AbSciCon on Your Calendar.

Agree or decline to have your presentation recorded.

A plain language summary is required and can be no longer than 200 words.

Authors can request that their presentation format be assigned by committee (oral, eLightning or poster session) on their abstract submission form or that their abstract should be considered for poster only.

Note: It is not possible to request only an oral presentation.

At this time, NASA and AGU are planning for AbSciCon 2022 to be both in-person and online so attendees can customize their participation. Some may choose to be 100% in-person or online while others may choose to do a mix of both.

ALL abstracts submitted are subject to acceptance and scheduling in a virtual session.

When you submit your abstract, you can indicate if you are prepared to only present virtually or if you are comfortable and have no preference presenting either virtually or in-person.

Share if any of the presentation has been previously reported in scientific meetings, journals or in the news media.
