Technical Program

The 2020 WEAO Technical Symposium and OPCEA Exhibition extends an open invitation for the submission of abstracts for presentations for the technical program at next year's symposium.

Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel 
April 26-28, 2020

Technical Presentations are generally 30-minutes in length and are selected by the Abstract selection group in a highly rigorous selection process. Once selected, the abstracts are grouped together topically to make a cohesive session.


SEPTEMBER 30, 2019 - Submission of abstract (late entries will be placed on waiting list)
NOVEMBER 30, 2019 - Acceptance notices to be emailed to presenters
JANUARY 31, 2020 - Paper for proceedings and signed copyright release form to be emailed to Session Chair
MARCH 31, 2020 - Presentation to be emailed to Session Chair

Presenters are expected to register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee. No travel or assistance funds are available for speakers.

Papers must be submitted through the online system. No other means of submission will be accepted. This year, presenters must create a contact profile before logging in (unless profile exists from 2019) and are welcome to submit more than one abstract before the deadline, and to amend and withdraw submissions.
