APS members may be invited to present one scientific abstract at March Meeting 2024. Individual speakers will not be invited to speak at two consecutive March Meetings, e.g., an invited speaker who presented at March Meeting 2023 will not be invited to speak at March Meeting 2024.
Please review the speaker nominations instructions for more information.
Exceptions are made for speakers who will receive APS prizes and awards.
In addition to their invited talk, invited speakers may submit one contributed abstract and poster for the regular scientific program. APS will send out invited speaker letters, usually in October, with information about submitting abstracts and/or posters, as well as about registration.
Invited speakers must still register for March Meeting 2024. Their speaker confirmation emails will specify whether the speaker should pay for meeting registration or if it will be sponsored by an APS Unit.
Invited abstract guidelines
An invited abstract may only have the invitee as the author. APS suggests that the invitee credit collaborating researchers in a footnote within the paper. The invitee must deliver the paper, unless a replacement speaker is agreed upon beforehand. To discuss a replacement speaker, please contact APS Abstract Help.
Submitting your invited abstract
To submit your abstract, please use the link in your invited speaker letter, sent to you via email by APS on October 6, 2023. If you did not receive your invited speaker letter from APS, please contact the APS March Meeting team.
The limit for invited abstract text is approximately 2,000 characters.
Submitting multiple invited abstracts
If you are submitting an invited abstract, you may also submit one additional abstract of a non-technical nature, such as on education and/or policy. This abstract may be presented at a session, sponsored by an APS Forum or Committee, of broad concern to the physics community.
Withdrawing an invited abstract
If you accept an invitation to present but are later unable to do so, please contact APS Abstract Help.
At March Meeting 2024, an invited paper is expected to have 30 minutes for presentation time, plus six minutes for questions.
