General Information for Authors/Presenters

In order for papers to be published in the Annual Proceedings for the 2021 SWPSC Conference the deadline for submitting completed papers is March 18, 2022.  If this deadline is not achievable, please contact the SWPSC office immediately.  This deadline is important because it allows time for the paper to placed in a publication software package, printed and assembled for a timely delivery. Having your paper available in the Annual Proceedings is not optional and must be received in order to be scheduled for presentation times.  Completed papers should be submitted electronically (email,, jump drive, or disk) as a Word document only. PDF files and Power Point Presentations will not be accepted. 

The SWPSC appreciates the efforts of the authors and co-authors in providing a quality program.  It is important to note, however, that the SWPSC is a non-profit association and they would request cooperation in following the precedent set by various professional societies which require the author and co-authors to be responsible for the standard registration fee and related travel expenses. 
The author and/or co-authors are responsible for the oral presentation of the paper twice, once each day of the Short Course during a pre-determined scheduled time.  This task can be shared between co-authors, if so desired.
The average attendance varies from 20 to 65 people.  The rooms are equipped with a screen and computer overhead projector.  Please bring you own laptop for presentation -  on-site computers are not available. Classroom seating will follow CDC guidelines and city mandates.
