Call for Abstracts

We are currently closed for abstract submissions for the 2019 symposium. Please contact submit@aiaanextgen.org if you believe that your work should still be part of our symposium.

Abstract Submissions

A paper is not required to present. Required materials are an abstract and presentation. 

Being a YP is not required to present. Our only restriction is that the material presented not be Undergraduate work.

It is the presenter’s responsibility to ensure that material presented has been cleared for public release by their organization.

Tickets are not required before abstract submission. All attendees are expected to have a ticket before the event.
