Abstract Submission Form

Call for Abstracts deadline extended to August 1. Thank you for contributing to the conversation!

We welcome your submissions! Presenters at the Cal-IPC Symposium provide a popular and diverse educational forum for the California land management community. Submit abstracts for either 15-min oral presentation, 5-min lightning talk oral presentation, or poster. Please note, because our Symposium will be held online, we will have less room for full-length presentations. You may be asked to present a lightning talk or poster.

Oral presenters should expect to submit prerecorded presentations. Cal-IPC will supply guidance to support speakers for online presentations and instructions for recording presentations and submitting posters prior to the event. Speakers must be available online for Q&A after their presentation. Poster and lightning talk presenters must be present online for the poster and speed talk session.

Please read and follow the guidelines below when submitting your abstract:

  • Draft abstract as a word document
  • Use Calibri 11pt font
  • Limit body of text to less than 250 words
  • Use bold text for title. Capitalize only capitalize the first letter and proper nouns
  • Use italics for scientific names
  • Include names and affiliations of all co-authors. Use asterisk to identify presenter. Include email address of presenter
  • Name file using following convention: “Lastname__firstinitial_abstract_Cal-IPC2020.doc”
  • See the sample abstract for additional formatting guidance
  • Use the form at the bottom of this page to submit your abstract by clicking the “Register” button. Fill out details about the type of submission on page 2 of the form.
