Submission Instructions and FAQs:
Submission to a Track
In our new conference platform, when submitting your abstract, you will be asked to direct your submission to a Track. These tracks are the CEA Study Groups and Scientific Committees who will review the abstracts in their respective areas and provide a decision to the program office.
Not certain what track to select in Step 1? The following table provides an overview of the topics for each track in the submission portal. The specific topic is added in step 5 while an optional secondary topic can be added in step 6 of the submission process. Note that some papers may be reassigned to a different track based on the study group or committee's feedback, the paper's secondary subject, and the program chair's discretion.

Why do I have to submit my paper to a track?
The track feature in our submission portal is required to manage the subsequent review process in our new conference management system. This allows the program office to direct your submission to the appropriate review group.
Do I have to be a member of a Study Group to submit to their track?
No, you do not need to be a member of a specific Study Group to submit to their track in the portal. You are, however, welcome to learn more about each study group by visiting their webpage and participating in their activities.
Can I Edit My Submission/Abstract?
Yes! Your submission details can be edited during and after submission up until the submission deadline. During submission, once you have filled in a "Step" you can return to that step by clicking on the desired "Step" button listed in the left hand column - Do NOT use back button.
