Researchers Meeting Abstract Submission Form

Please read the Researchers Meeting theme statement before proceeding. Plenary and special conference sessions will focus on examples of action-oriented research that involves partnerships with frontline communities to solve complex challenges. Please note, however, that research submissions from all disciplines focused on any topic related to hazards and disasters are welcome.

Researchers Meeting abstracts are due March 31, 2023.

This year, there will be multiple session formats including regular oral and lightning presentations. Oral presentations will be 10-12 minutes long followed by a short Q&A, while lightning presentations will be 5-6 minutes long followed by longer discussions and networking.

Researchers Meeting Abstract Submission

Please enter information below exactly as you would like it to appear in the online program.

Provide a title for your research paper/presentation in title case (limit 12 words).

Please submit a research abstract that describes the project (limit 250 words). Include key research questions, methods, results, and practical implications. We cannot accept abstracts on research proposals or literature reviews. Abstracts directly aligned with the Researchers Meeting theme will be considered for plenary or other special sessions.

If accepted, the version submitted here will be lightly edited and published online, so please ensure that your submission adheres to professional writing standards. The abstract should be written in the third person, proper nouns should be capitalized, all acronyms should be spelled out on first use, and the use of contractions should be avoided. Because researchers from many disciplines attend this meeting, technical abstracts should be written in accessible language.

Include up to five keywords separated by commas below.
