Submission details

Deadline: Sunday, December 2, 2018, 11:59 pm Pacific Standard Time (UTC-8)

Submissions should be made via the SALT 29 EasyChair site. We expect to notify authors of their acceptance in February of 2019.


Abstracts must be anonymous. The main text should be at most 2 pages (US Letter or A4) in length, with an optional third page for examples, references, or figures. The abstract should use a 12pt font and 1 inch margins (for US Letter) or 3 cm margins (for A4) on all four sides. The abstract must be submitted as a single PDF file. These limitations will be strictly enforced. In addition to the intellectual interest of the abstract, clarity and readability will also be taken into account in reviewing.

SALT 29 will feature a poster session. Poster presentations will be published as regular papers in the proceedings. Poster presenters will be asked to give a short lightning round presentation prior to the poster session.


Authors may be involved in at most two abstracts and may be the sole author of at most one abstract.

SALT does not accept papers that at the time of the conference have been published or have been accepted for publication. In addition, preference will be given to presentations that are not duplicated at other major conferences. We therefore request that authors indicate prior, pending, or planned presentations of their papers along with their contact information when they submit their abstracts.


All papers presented at the conference will be published in a SALT 29 volume following the conclusion of the conference.
