AACE International has issued a call for technical papers for its two major educational meetings in 2014: the 2014 Annual Meeting June 15-18, 2014 in New Orleans, LA and the International Total Cost Management Conference November 11-13, 2014. The deadline for submission of abstracts is August 31, 2013. As a convenience for presenters, individuals may submit an abstract for either event or both using the same online abstract submission form.
For additional information about the events, go to the links below:
An abstract of 100-175 words must be submitted using the submission form provided online. The Technical Board suggests developing the abstract by addressing the major aspects of your paper as described below:
Summarize the scope and nature of the work upon which the paper is based. Note the relative emphasis of the paper on either research work or practical applications for projects.
Describe the results presented in the paper and state specific conclusions of your work. Describe how these differ from results or conclusions of previous work on the same or similar subjects. Papers may not contain actual intellectual property data and must focus on developing and describing concepts for practicing total cost management professionals. In general, this is not an appropriate forum for academic papers that are highly theoretical. Papers centered on commercial products or endorsements will not be accepted.
The abstract must be articulate and concise or it will be rejected. It is important that your abstract is well written; it provides the reviewers a critical first impression of what to expect.
Acceptance of your abstract is not a guarantee that your paper will be accepted; the technical evaluation/peer review of your paper will determine whether or not your paper will be accepted for the technical program of the meeting.
We encourage those submitting an abstract to request employer approval and funding early; if your paper is accepted you will be required to register for the meeting within two weeks, or we reserve the right to withdraw your submittal.
