New for ASTE this year, we are offering a Work in Progress Showcase in both in-person and virtual formats.

We invite you to submit a poster presentation to share your work in progress. Work in Progress Showcase poster submission require less detail than a full conference proposal and will include program abstract and proceedings abstract in addition to poster title and presenter information. We will accept submissions until November 15th. In-person Work in Progress Showcase poster presentations will be limited to 34 submissions, there is no limit to the number of virtual poster presentations. The Work in Progress Showcase submission system will be live no later than October 1st.

We hope you will consider joining us in-person or online at the ASTE Conference this January. The conference will provide exciting opportunities for discussing the latest research, making professional connections, and fostering friendships.
