Can I still submit an abstract now?

The deadline for submitting abstracts is January 5, 2020. Abstracts will be assigned to scheduled sessions by session organizers. No new abstracts can be added to the program after the deadline.

Why is the site open if I cannot submit an abstract?

The site is open only for EDITS to your current submissions (updating author information, institutions, or general presentation information such as titles or presenters) and also to SUBMIT YOUR FULL PAPER for the Online Technical Library.

How long is the site open?

The site will be open until 11:59 PM EST on June 10, 2020. This is the deadline for full paper submission as well as any changes made to the abstract or author information. No changes will be made to the AIM program after May 1 - NO EXCEPTIONS.

What is my paper number and DOI number?

Your paper has a “Submission ID” as shown below. Your “Paper Number” is a seven digit number. For 2020, it is 2000000 plus the “Submission ID”. For example, if your submission ID is 1642, your unique Paper Number is 2000000 + 1642 = 2001642. Your unique DOI number is “10.13031/aim.20” plus the Paper Number 10.13031/aim.202001642

For example, if the Submission ID number is “1642” 1642
Paper Number (used by the Word paper template) 2001642
DOI number (used by the Word paper template) 10.13031/aim.202001642

Is there a limit on file size or number of pages I can have for my AIM paper?

There are no restrictions on file size or number of pages you can submit.

How do I create my paper so that it can be published online?

Download the 2020 Annual Meeting Paper Template to create your manuscript in a Microsoft Word file (.doc or .docx file). Microsoft Word files are the only compatible file types. The template at www.asabe.org/ManuscriptTemplates contains required content for online indexing and describes formatting for fonts, styles, equations, figures, tables, lists, styles, and references. Download the latest version each year. Do NOT use a template from a previous year.

How do I submit my full paper?

After you have submitted an abstract and it has been reviewed and accepted into a session at AIM, the site will reopen
(Feb. 17 – May 1). Upload your full paper if you would like it published in our Technical Library. You must already have an account with the submission tied to it. We index the paper and make it available worldwide. You will not be able to submit a new abstract. Your file name should be like your paper number, for example, a file name like 2012345.docx for a 2020 paper.
