Call for Submissions

Abstract submission deadline: extended to Wednesday, December 7

Before submitting, please read these submission rules carefully.

By submitting an abstract to EWRI’s 2023 HMEM Conference, you acknowledge that you understand that:

  • You are available to present at any time and in the format (oral presentation or poster presentation) that HMEM assigns your presentation. Presentation schedules, length of presentations and room/space arrangements may vary to accommodate the number of conference abstracts received.
  • It is mandatory that you register and pay for the conference. Speakers who have not registered will be withdrawn from the conference.
  • If you require travel, you acknowledge that you understand that ASCE cannot pay for your travel or other expenses. In some instances, you may need to obtain permission and/or funding from your agency/company to make this presentation, including registration and affiliated travel. Some travel requires for you to apply for your international travel paperwork in advance to obtain international travel permissions. Letters of invitation are available on request.

Thank you so much for your interest in submitting an abstract for the conference. We look forward to seeing you in Fort Collins in June!
