Contributed Abstracts

The period for submitting abstracts for oral or poster presentations is now closed.

Instructions for Submitting Contributed Abstracts

Types of Contributed Presentations

Abstracts may be submitted either for oral presentations or poster presentations:

  • Oral presentations are delivered within a twelve minute timeframe during a March Meeting 2023 session, with the presenter speaking for ten minutes, followed by two minutes to address questions from the larger audience.
  • Poster presentations consist of the presenter standing with a poster displaying research in a designated space and engaging attendees one-on-one.

Eligibility and Presentation Requirements

To submit an abstract, you must be an APS Member or a member of a reciprocal society. You may present one technical, oral, or contributed presentation at March Meeting 2023. APS members may submit a contributed oral or poster abstract that lists a non-member as the presenter. You must be logged into your APS web account to submit an abstract. If you do not have an account, you may create one.

The presenter must attend the meeting and give the presentation during their scheduled session. The APS Program Committee, at its discretion, will accommodate author preferences regarding presentation type and schedule whenever possible.

Submitting Multiple Contributed Abstracts

Each presenting author is allowed one contributed oral abstract and one poster contributed abstract per method of presentation. One additional oral abstract of a non-technical nature–related to education, history of physics, or public policy–per method of presentation, may be presented at a session of broad concern to the physics community if it is sponsored by an APS Forum or Committee.

At its discretion, the APS Program Committee will accept additional technical abstracts as poster presentations on a space-available basis. If you have specific questions about an oral, poster or invited abstract (by invitation only) submission, please contact APS Abstract Help.

Editing Abstracts

Please proofread your abstract carefully before submitting it. For March Meeting 2023, you will be able to edit your abstract in the submission system up until the submission deadline.

  • Character limits: Contributed oral and poster abstracts are limited to approximately 1,300 characters.
  • Formatting: APS will not add additional authors or re-order the author list after the abstract submission deadline has passed.
  • Withdrawing: You may withdraw your contributed abstract online before the abstract submission deadline. After the deadline, please contact APS Abstract Help.

Accepted Abstracts

If your abstract is accepted, you will receive an email from APS notifying you that your abstract has been placed in the program. You are responsible for confirming the session date and time and to request any necessary changes. You may do so by contacting APS Abstract Help.
