ACLCA invites you to submit an abstract to speak at the 2023 Annual Conference.


Deadline to Submit: May 19

**Deadline Extended to June 5**


All abstract presentations will be made in either poster or oral presentation format. Abstract authors are asked to indicate a preference for poster versus oral presentation but conference organizers will assign the final format.

Presentations (technical talks) are Live talks on the latest in LCA and you will gain immediate feedback from the moderators and audience.

Poster Sessions are formal, research-based presentations with a visual representation of research through text, charts, graphics, and other visual aids.


Special sessions are interactive sessions designed by you with many format options including, but not limited to experts panel, a rapid-fire sequence of five-minute talks with QA, hands-on demos, or experts discussion.

Special sessions should NOT replicate existing ACLCA 2023 session formats (i.e., paper presentations and poster sessions). Within these constraints, the form is yours to design. Special Session submission comprises (usually up to) 3 or 4 speakers and a moderator. This is your opportunity to engage and interact with a global community


We are looking for those with specialized LCA experience to host pre-conference workshops on Monday, September 25, 2023, the day before the start of the ACLCA 2023 conference.

The workshops can be anywhere from 1½ hours - 3 hours in length. Teachers of successful workshops (i.e. more than 8 registrants) will receive complimentary entry to this year’s ACLCA 2023 conference (transportation to conference and lodging not provided).


Deadline to Submit is May 19, 2023

**Deadline Extended to June 5**

Your Abstract Showcased Like Nowhere Else
After the ACLCA 2023 Conference, your abstract will be published in December 2023* in the publication of the dedicated proceedings for the ACLCA 2023 Conference. PDF copies will be made available to all who submitted an abstract.  It will also be added to ACLCA's website with more than 2 million visits last year.

*authors choose whether to have the abstract published in the proceedings.
