Authors may submit more than one abstract in each category, but only one abstract per “lead author” will be accepted and the lead author will be expected to present the resulting paper. Only one presentation by an author will be allowed. If you are “lead author” on more than one abstract selected, you will be asked to designate a co-author as “lead author.” Your abstract may be accepted for a category other than the one you have chosen; therefore, it is important that you rank you abstract submissions in order of priority. To ensure a balanced program, ACEEE reserves the right to exclude papers at any point in the publication process.
