Q: How can I be considered as a presenter for the US or Italy conference?
After you read the information on this page, click on "APPLY TO PRESENT" below.

Q: To submit a proposal, do I need to register and pay for the conference?
A:
No, you will only need to sign up and login to the website. Once accepted, presenters will need to register and pay for the conference, at a discounted rate.

Q: How are speakers selected?
A:
A committee gathers to look through all the abstracts and select the speakers for the available 20minute concurrent slots. Once all the slots are filled, many of the remaining abstract candidates will be offered participation in the Friday evening poster session, where they can present their material in a more informal setting.

Q: What is a poster session?
A:
A poster session, which is part of the SAND US Conference, is an opportunity to communicate your ideas to others in a relaxed setting, rather like a trade fair. For more information, click here.

Q: What is your presenter cancellation policy?
A:
If your talk has been accepted and you have registered at the discounted rate, the registration fee is non-refundable after September 1. Cancellations prior to that date are subject to a $100 cancellation fee.

Q: I missed the deadline. When can I submit for the following year?
A:
Openings and deadlines will be announced in the SAND Newsletter. Submissions for both events usually open mid-January and run till mid-April.
