Welcome to the abstract submission page for GLP-OSM5!

Abstract Submissions has CLOSED.

Instructions for choosing your session

*Note that some 'innovative and immersive' and 'workshop and training' sessions are not accepting abstracts. This is noted in the session title.

Each oral presentation will be paired to a specific session based on review by the OSM scientific committee and abstracts may be placed in alternative sessions if the session is at capacity/not available. Poster presentations should choose the appropriate theme and select "poster presentation" for presentation format.

Session Numbering

  • The first digit of each session number refers to the three main conference themes:

1 = The State of the World
2 = Imagining the Future(s)
3 = Enabling Transformative Changes

  • The second and third digits of each session indicate the session number.
  • The final letter in each session number indicates what type of session it is:

R = Research
N = Innovative or immersive
