Call for Proposals

Submitting a Proposal

Important: Emailed, mailed, or faxed proposals will NOT be accepted.

Please follow the steps below to ensure your submission is received in its complete and correct form.


Registration for proposals closed on 11:59 p.m. on June 19th.

  1. Titles must be no more than 50 characters including spaces. Titles must be in English. Please capitalize the title using sentence case:
    e.g.: Submitting a presentation: Format like this.
  2. Prepare a summary (maximum of 50 words or 100 Japanese characters) and an abstract (200-300 words or 400-600 Japanese characters). Following the steps below will help ensure your submission is received properly.
    • If possible, use a word processor or text editor other than Microsoft Word to write your submission. Microsoft Word introduces various text encodings that cause compatibility issues with the online database, and may result in unwanted characters appearing in your submission.
    • Plain text only. Don't format your document with tabs, bold text, bullet marks or multiple line breaks between paragraphs. All formatting will be stripped when the document is submitted to the database and sent to the reading committee.
    • Use straight quotes and apostrophes, not curly quotes (" " are straight; “ ” are curly).
    • Use a single space only after punctuation such as periods, not double spaces.
    • Do not use all caps for your name. Enter your name with the first letter capitalized only like this: Smith, Joe. Using uppercase or all capitals for your entire name looks unprofessional and creates extra work for the publications editors.
  3. To submit go to the CUE Conference submissions webpage at: Registration is closed
  4. Enter all your submission details following the on-screen instructions. Once complete, submit your summary and abstract. Do not send by email. Only website submissions will be accepted.
  5. As all correspondence from the program committee regarding your submission will be via email, please ensure you enter a correct working email address! We will be notifying presenters around the middle of August with submission results. It is important you provide an email address you can access at this time, as presenters who do not confirm their intention to present by the deadline may be removed from the schedule. It is your responsibility to confirm your presentation by the deadline even if you are away from home or work.
  6. Also, be sure to notify the program team of any changes in your contact address. If we cannot contact you via email, your submission will be dropped.
  7. Once you submit your presentation, you will receive an automatic confirmation email message listing the details of your submission. In most cases this confirmation email will be sent within a few seconds of your submission. This email message is your receipt to show your submission has been received and entered in the conference database. Please keep a copy of this message in case of any queries or problems related to your submission. If you do not receive this confirmation, it means your submission was not received or your email was incorrect. Therefore, please contact us to check on the status of your submission. In most cases, failure to receive confirmation mail means the presentation details were not submitted correctly. It is your responsibility to follow up on submission errors promptly.
