Abstract and Sessions Submission

Sessions will be 90 minutes long. All sessions, both invited and contributed, should consist of 4 speakers. Those wishing to propose contributed sessions should contact John Hasenbein. The proposal should include the session title, organizer name, four speakers, titles and abstracts for each of the four talks. Deadline for all proposals for contributed sessions is April 15th, 2013.

If you have been invited to participate by a session chair, you must submit your title/abstract to your session chair before April 15th, 2013. Invited abstracts should be sent by email to the session organizer, who will collect all abstracts and send them by email to aps2013abstract@gmail.com. Session organizers should collect and submit invited session information by April 15th.

If you are submitting a contributed talk for the meeting that is independent of an organized session, you must also submit your title/abstract by April 15th, 2013 . Please send the LaTeX source file (see instructions below) by email to aps2013abstract@gmail.com. Any such talk that is accepted by the Program Committee will then be placed into an appropriate session when the final program is created.

LaTeX Template

When submitting abstracts follow the approved LaTeX template:

    • Download the package informs2013.sty and use this style to create an abstract.
    • Please use the following sample file to create your own abstract: informs2013abstract.tex. If you encounter any problems using this package, please contact marko@win.tue.nl.
    • Note that we need the LaTeX source file! You can also provide the resulting PDF, but this is optional.


    If you have technical questions, or if you need help preparing your abstract in LaTeX, please contact Marko Boon (marko@win.tue.nl).

    Instructions for submitting your abstract

    • Abstracts must follow the approved template, and should be a maximum of twelve lines. The template is in LaTeX. It is recommended to submit both the LaTeX source and the PDF file, but only the LaTeX source is required.
    • As the presenting author, you are expected to present your work at the meeting. Your co-authors are also encouraged to attend. After submission you will receive an email confirming your online submission.

    If after submitting your abstract, you find you must cancel, contact John Hasenbein.

    Abstracts belonging to a session (invited or contributed) should be sent by email to the session organizer (preferably tex + pdf files). Abstracts for contributed talks independent of an organized session should be sent by email to aps2013abstract@gmail.com.
