Official SEE/MAPLD COVID-19 Policy:

Covid policy/recommendations for SEEMAPLD 2023 will be provided closer to the meeting dates as the pandemic status evolves.

2023 SEE/MAPLD Workshop Call for Papers

We are seeking contributions in the following areas, but all submissions will be reviewed. Four sessions are available: SEE, MAPLD, Combined, and Poster. The Combined Session includes submissions that cross SEE and MAPLD themes. The Poster Session can include SEE, MAPLD, or Combined content. Please refrain from technical content reasonably classified as product marketing.

We especially encourage the submission of content focusing on:
1) Standards & Methods 4) Modeling and Simulation
2) Alternatives to Heavy Ion and Proton Testing 5) Relevant Test Facility Updates
3) Space Environments

Abstract Submission Guidelines:

Abstract submissions are a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 4 pages for MS Word

PowerPoint charts should provide a title page with authors and affiliations, motivation / context / overview, available relevant results, and anticipated conclusions

The required file format is MS Word .docx or MS Powerpoint .pptx or Adobe PDF (refer to templates provided below)

MS Word DOCX abstract template (.docx)

MS Powerpoint PPTX abstract template (.pptx)

Deadline for submissions date coming soon.
