The 2017 IASR Conference will be held in Charleston, South Carolina from July 23-26, 2017.



Abstracts are requested from researchers interested in presenting their scientific research in the form of brief communications, data blitzes, posters, and symposia. A preliminary scientific program and detailed calls for abstracts can be downloaded as a PDF here (please note, some deadlines have been updated). In general, the first author on the abstract is the person expected to present. Presenters, if selected, must register for the conference. Research that is not selected as a brief communication or data blitz will be automatically considered for a poster presentation.
