Abstract Submission Process

STEP 1 – Submit a Resume for Review and Approval. A current resume needs to be submitted and approved in order to proceed with your MARC abstract submission, and some of this information will appear next to your abstract.

• Log into the MTL website [https://www.mtl.mit.edu/user]
• Use the button on your account page to create and complete a resume, and submit it to MTL
• Approval from MTL is typically within 24 hours

Once you have submitted your resume and had it approved, you can proceed with your abstract submission.

STEP 2 – Prepare your abstract using the template and guidelines below. Please ensure that you follow the naming convention when submitting your abstract file: “marc2024_abstract_kerberos.rtf" 

By submitting your abstract to the MARC Committee, you agree to have your abstract published in the MARC2024 Conference Proceedings. 

STEP 3 – Abstract submission is not a part of the general conference registration - you will need to register separately for the conference when general registration opens. 

After Submission

STEP 4 – MARC2024 Committee Session Chairs will review the abstracts and provide feedback on how they can be improved prior to publication. Authors of abstracts requiring significant modifications will be encouraged to seek the input of the EECS Communication Lab in order to maximize final quality.

STEP 5 - Please make the requested improvements to your abstract and return it to your MARC2024 Committee Session Chair for inclusion the proceedings.
