Abstract Submission


    • Please carefully proofread your submission for accuracy, including names, and email addresses.
    • Carefully review and follow all instructions for formatting authors names, affiliations, abstract titles, and the abstract body.
    • All content is expected to be free of spelling and grammatical errors; use American English standards for spelling and punctuation.
    • If your abstract is accepted for presentation, the material that you submit will be distributed in Conference Schedules and Proceedings.
    • EMAIL ADDRESSES: We use email addresses to link abstract presenters to their registrations, and to link authors to all of their abstracts when preparing the proceedings. As such, please use exactly the same email address for individuals throughout the CRWAD submission and registration system.   If you are entering information for another person, please keep this in mind and ensure that you are entering the same email address as others.
    • The official language of CRWAD is English, and no translation of content to other languages will be available.
    • All accepted abstracts will be presented onsite in Chicago.
    • If you must secure a Visa to attend CRWAD 2025, you are strongly encouraged to meet the first abstract submission deadline (August 1, 2024) to maximize the time available to obtain the required travel documents.


Failure to adhere to these requirements may result in CRWAD organizers withdrawing abstracts for the current year and potentially embargoing authors from presenting in future years.
