  Submit a Postdeadline Paper
Abstract and Summary Submission Deadline: 09 April 2024, 12:00 noon (EDT, UTC-04:00)

Postdeadline Paper Submissions

Postdeadline submissions are not an opportunity to submit a paper after the published deadline, but are intended to provide those with late-breaking work an opportunity to submit that work for consideration. Postdeadline submissions should describe new and significant material in rapidly advancing areas. A limited number of postdeadline submissions (papers judged to be excellent and compelling in their timeliness) will be accepted/selected for presentation.  

The 2024 Meeting Format

CLEO will be presented as an in-person-only meeting. The co-sponsor Societies believe that there is genuine value in bringing the community together in person to learn from and share with each other. The in-person format places focus on the primacy of engagement, networking and interaction opportunities on site.
