The dates for the upcoming 2014 CLEERS Workshop are April 29 - May 1 (Tuesday-Thursday). Unlike previous years, the workshop will not be immediately adjacent to the SAE Congress, which occurs earlier in April. This year we have a web portal for submitting proposed contributed oral talks and posters. All we will need is your proposed title and a short abstract. As usual, we will not require any written papers or slides prior to the meeting, and we will only publicly post slides that have been approved by the authors after the meeting. It is important to remember that we will only have a finite number of slots for oral presentations. The earlier you get your proposed contributions submitted, the better your chances are for getting placed in the agenda.
The final cutoff for oral talk submissions is 4 PM, EST on Friday (January 31st). After that date, we will only be accepting submissions for oral presentations on a wait list basis. That is, we will put any oral presentation abstracts submitted after the cutoff on a waiting list in case we get any cancellations of previously accepted talks. If you are on the waiting list we will notify you if an oral presentation slot comes open later. We will continue accepting poster presentation submissions until the end of March.
