The deadline for submission of individual abstracts to the SCS Program Committee for the 2017 annual meeting in Toronto is next Tuesday, April 26, at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time. You may create an account on the program submission site and submit an abstract only if you are an SCS member in good standing for 2016. In addition, you must use the same credentials that you established in our membership database at the Johns Hopkins University Press (JHUP) to create your account on the program submission site. Visit this page about eligibility to submit an abstract to find links to the Johns Hopkins site where you can retrieve those credentials and your member number.
If you have not yet paid dues for 2016 and intend to submit an abstract, please do so here by the end of this week, i.e., by Sunday, April 24. Do not attempt to pay dues and submit an abstract on April 26, because there will be a lag between receipt of your dues and activation of your membership. If you are not sure whether you have paid your dues for 2016, you can reach the customer service staff at the Johns Hopkins University Press at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org, 800-548-1784 (US and Canada only), or 410-516-6987 (all others).
If your dues are paid, and you have your credentials from JHUP, create an account on the program submission site. Please create this account as soon as possible even if you are not ready to submit your abstract. If you encounter any difficulty in creating the account, we want to be able to diagnose your problem before the deadline.
