AAUS will be changing the process for abstract submission and proceedings printing for 2024.  We will be accepting abstracts until six weeks before the symposium and proceedings will be printed AFTER the symposium.  Additionally, we will be posting some general categories for paper submission topics.  Stay tuned for the details on these changes coming by December 01, 2023.

AAUS is now accepting abstract submissions for the 2024 AAUS Diving for Science Symposium. AAUS will accept short abstracts (maximum of 300 words), extended abstracts (800-1200 words) or full manuscripts. The deadline for ALL submissions (abstracts and full papers) to be submitted electronically to [email protected] is 01 March. Please put "2024 AAUS Symposium" followed by your desired format (abstract/extended abstract/full paper) and your name in the message line to facilitate tracking. Priority will be given and time slots assigned as abstracts are accepted for presentation.

[ex.“2024AAUSsymposium-extendedabstract-crigaud”]. Notification on the disposition of submitted abstracts will be returned to the first author electronically as they are received but no later than 01 April 24, with any suggested revisions due by 15 April. No presentation will be allowed unless the final abstract or manuscript has been cleared for publication in the Proceedings and abstracts/manuscripts will only be published if the presentation is delivered. All submissions MUST use the templates, which include detailed formatting instructions. Templates can also be found on the symposium website under the Resources tab.
