Now Accepting
Presentation Abstracts - Showcase Your Expertise
Deadline: October 28th

Presentation ideas will be accepted for the 2023 International Biomass Conference & Expo through October 28, 2022. Presentation ideas may be submitted in one of four tracks:

Track 1: Pellets & Densified Biomass
Track 2: Biomass Power & Thermal
Track 3: Biogas & Renewable Natural Gas (RNG)
Track 4: Advanced Biofuels & Biobased Chemicals

Each presentation idea will be reviewed by a steering committee of qualified industry professionals by November 7th. Speaker presentation acceptance and rejection e-mails will be delivered by November 18th, and the preliminary agenda (all technical breakout sessions) will be posted online the week of November 28th.

Specifications for Speaker Presentation Ideas

Specificity: This is crucial for technology or process related abstracts. Make sure your presentation idea promises to convey, in specific terms, how a technology, system or process will improve production, reduce costs, and/or increase value. The abstract should promise to compare a new approach to an old way of doing things, or highlight process/production improvements or technological breakthroughs.

Relevance: The presentation idea should indicate that the presentation will highlight something that will make significant near-term impacts in its given area to a majority of the affected facilities/crops/processes/projects in the region.

Detail: While abstracts do not include schematics, photos, graphics, spreadsheets or pro formas, the abstract should indicate that the speaker will illustrate the effect of the technology/process/business approach by incorporating such visual tools into the presentation.

Understandability: If there are very complex processes or scientific/economic ideas being presented, the abstract should indicate that measures will be taken to make the information understandable (within reason) to a diverse spectrum of conference attendees. 

Word Count: While there is technically no limitations on the length of your abstract, we ask that it be 200 to 400 words in length.
