  • Follow the guidelines (i.e., authors should submit their abstracts online using Abstracts Central, organizers should not accept speakers abstracts via e-mail and forward them on to ACerS staff or encourage speakers to do this directly).
  • Strictly meet each deadline. If deadline dates are not kept, it affects everything downstream.
  • Note: We are going with one strict abstract deadline for ICACC 2020. The published deadline is the deadline, and after the deadline we will accept posters only.
