All conference proposals will be subjected to a blind peer-review process.
Each submission must be in 12-point Times New Roman font and single spaced. Do not include any identifying information in the file containing your submission. Please make sure that your submission follows the requirements for the respective submission type.
Submission of a proposal to IABS constitutes a commitment that at least one discussion/paper author will attend the conference if the submission is accepted. Symposia are submitted with the expectation that the members of the symposium will attend and participate as detailed in the proposal.
Everyone submitting a proposal will be requested to serve as a reviewer for at least three other submissions.
For 2018, IABS will be using a new conference management system called EasyChair. You’ll first register for an account at by clicking the Submit Now button at the bottom of this page or copy and paste this URL to a browser https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iabs2018. After you create your account, you’ll login as an author and follow the instructions to submit your proposal.
