Individual Abstract Submissions
If you would like to request a deadline extension, email us as soon as possible at WCNR_hdnr_Pathways@mail.colostate.edu.
Please follow the instructions carefully and include all requested information. All submissions must be in English. Please be aware, participants will not be allowed more than one oral presentation, but may be listed as a co-author of several abstracts.
You may submit your abstract by visiting the Ex Ordo abstract submission system (you will be required to setup an account first): https://pathways2023.exordo.com
If you have trouble submitting your abstract via the website, please email us at wcnr_hdnr_pathways@Mail.colostate.edu and we will work with you.
Step 0) Create an account with Ex Ordo by visiting: https://pathways2023.exordo.com/
Step 1) Select the “Individual Abstract” track, or “Poster” if you are submitting a poster (For Organized Sessions, follow separate instructions below).
Step 2) Enter the title and abstract. The title must be ≤8 words and abstracts must be ≤300 wordsin order to submit. Abstracts that exceed the word limit can’t be submitted through the online submission system. Each abstract should include a clear statement of the problem or objectives, give brief methods and substantive results, and end with a clear conclusion. Do not use vague statements such as “results will be discussed.”
Step 3) Enter authors and their affiliations. All co-author’s email addresses must be included. You must also designate “corresponding authors” and “presenting authors.” Please be aware, no more than the first 5 authors may be listed to retain program readability.
Step 4) Choose up to 3 topics that accurately categorize your abstract. These topics will be used to place your abstract in an appropriate session if your submission is not part of an organized session.
The Pathways 2023 conference theme is “Wildlife Management in an Era of Mutualism”. This theme will guide the development of our plenary and training program. We encourage individual presentations that fall within the Pathways 2023 conference theme, but this is not a requirement. The conference organizers have drafted a broader list of potential key topics areas that we hope will inspire the conference program. Please visit the Pathways website at https://sites.warnercnr.colostate.edu/pathways to learn more about the Pathways 2023 theme and topics.
Step 5) You will be asked if you are submitting an Organized Session. This question is in reference to the submission that you are currently entering. Since this is an Individual Abstract or Poster, you will reply “no” here. If this submission is an Organized Session, return to Step 1 and mark it as an Organized Session and follow the Organized Session instruction steps instead. If your submission is part of an Organized Session, please select “yes” to the question “is this abstract part of an Organized Session?” and enter the title of the Organized Session.
If your abstract is selected, you will be notified with an acceptance email no later than January 30, 2023. Those who are selected to present will be required to submit their PowerPoint files no later than May 29, 2023.
All presenters must register and pay for the conference no later than February 11, 2023. Presentation slots are limited and cancellations prohibit others from presenting their findings, so please be considerate.
POWERPOINT PRESENTATION GUIDELINES
Those who are selected to present will be required to submit their PowerPoint files no later than May 29, 2023. We recommend uploading early. You will be able to make revisions to your presentation by logging into your online account up until midnight Mountain Standard Time on the 27th. Please do not upload presentations until after we have confirmed that your abstract has been accepted. Furthermore, please make sure to bring a backup copy of your presentation with you to conference.
The conference language is English so all the abstracts and presentations must be in English. Each presenter will be allotted 20 minutes (15 minutes to present and 5 minutes for questions). Some sessions may have additional discussion time available. If you are in an organized session and the session lead has given you different instructions, then please follow those instead.
