Publishing Your Abstract

All abstracts will be via the APS website before the meeting. Links to the APS abstracts on the WEB site are maintained as an archive of meeting abstracts. This will continue indefinitely into the future so that later you can look or reference the URL of your abstract.


All AAPT, APS, and SPS members are encouraged to present contributed talks during the conference. A limited number of posters will also be accepted on a first come first serve basis. Proof-read your abstract carefully before submission!

Placing Your Talk In The Correct Session

This meeting is a joint meeting of the Texas Sections of the American Physical Society (APS), American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), and Society of Physics Students (SPS). The online abstract submission for all abstracts is done through the APS website.

If your presentation is for the AAPT or the SPS sessions, be sure to select the appropriate AAPT or SPS category on the abstract submission form so that your talk is placed in the correct session.
