Call for Abstracts:

Joint ITE International and Mountain and Western Districts Annual Meeting and Exhibition

Deadline for Submissions: Tuesday, December 1

You are invited to submit an abstract in support of the upcoming Joint ITE International and Mountain and Western Districts Annual Meeting and Exhibition (#ITEPortland2021) to be held in Portland, OR, July 18-21, 2021.

This site gives you the opportunity to submit an abstract for either a presentation or a session using the SUBMIT button above. Please make sure to select the correct option. If submitting for a session, please identify speakers for the session - this is not required, but experience indicates that session abstracts without identified speakers have a low probability of being selected.
