Oral presentations are 15 minutes, which includes time for 1-2 clarifying questions. Presentations will be grouped by topic with 5 presentations in a 90-minute time block. The last 15 minutes of each session will be used for Q&A and discussion with all presenters. Oral presentations will be scheduled in concurrent session blocks on December 5, 6, or 7.
Poster presenters will share their poster in a poster session on Tuesday, December 5 in Monterey, where they can interact with attendees and respond to questions. Posters will be displayed throughout the week.
Sharing Presentations on the Conference App and Website
Presenters are invited to submit their presentation prior to Fire Congress so we can share the presentations on the conference website. For oral presentations, you can submit a pre-recorded video of your presentation (think of this a practice session!). For poster presentations, you can submit your poster PDF or JPG file. Both in-person and virtual attendees will have access to these presentations and be able to interact with you through the conference app to ask questions or share comments.
A processing fee is required for each abstract submitted. This fee is separate from registration and required for all oral and poster presentation abstracts.
The abstract fee is non-refundable and covers escalating administrative and online costs associated with abstract submission and review, finalizing the program, and sharing your abstract/presentation on our mobile app and conference website. Our hope is that this will also incentivize attendance, reducing logistical challenges associated with late cancellations.
To ensure this fee is not a barrier to participation, presenters can self-select the appropriate fee on their submission form based on this sliding scale:
- Regular submission fee: $50
- Discounted submission fee: $25 (available for students and those who need financial assistance)
- Fee waiver: $0 (available for those who cannot pay the fee due to economic hardship or other reasons)
After submitting your abstract, you will receive a link to pay the fee using our online payment system. If you need to pay this fee with your registration, please email [email protected] so we can invoice you.
Proposals will be evaluated for inclusion based on the clarity of the abstract, the relevance of the topic, and its appeal to attendees. Please have the following information ready when you submit your proposal:
- Contact information for the presenter
- List of co-author names and affiliations (if applicable)
- Title of presentation
- Abstract (200 words or less)
- Presenter bio (100 words or less)
- 3 keywords representing the main content of the presentation
