Extended Abstract Submissions


Each year, STLE’s annual meeting is known for its exceptional technical content. With over 400 technical-paper presentations to choose from, a major concern for attendees is scheduling conflicts, as they sometimes miss presentations that they would like to hear or cannot share the contents with their colleagues that are unable to attend the meeting.

In an effort to provide attendees with the opportunity of not missing a presentation, we encourage speakers to submit a 2-3 page Extended Abstract, which may also include handout materials of your presentation. Both abstracts and handouts must be converted as PDFs before submission.

To participate, we request submission of the following materials:

  1. Click here to complete the Extended Abstract Submission Form (Note: Make sure to include your presentation title and technical track assignment).
  2. Create a brief 2-3 page summary of your presentation (Click here for sample template). Handouts may also be included!
  3. Convert your Extended Abstract and presentation handouts (if applicable) as a PDF attachment and email to: presentations@stle.org.

We suggest that speakers submit their abstracts and handouts before Wednesday, April 30 that way we can make presentations available to attendees prior to the meeting. We realize speakers might still be working on their presentations before they arrive, so abstracts and handouts may also be submitted anytime after April 30, as well as during and immediately following the meeting to allow more of your colleagues to benefit from your presentations.

At previous meetings, STLE has provided the presentations on a CD. This year, presentations will now be accessible online and made available to attendees.

If you have questions or need assistance with submitting your presentation, please contact Karl Phipps at
(847)825-5536, kphipps@stle.org.
