Give Your MLA ’24 Abstract a Second Chance: Poster and Lightning Talks are due TODAY!

The MLA ’24 submission site for posters and lightning talks will remain open until January 25, 2024. Posters and lightning talks are great ways to share information about research or programs. Don’t miss this opportunity to share your innovative work with your colleagues as we meet at MLA '24 Stronger Together.

If you have submitted a paper proposal that was not accepted, consider updating the abstract and submitting the topic for consideration as a poster or a five-minute lightning talk.

Like papers, posters and lightning talks require a structured abstract. More information about structured abstracts can be found at The Structured Abstract: An Essential Tool for Researchers.

How to Submit

All you need to get started on the submission process is your name and email. Your details and progress will be saved, and you will automatically be opted-in to receive reminders to complete your abstract submission. Find additional information about MLA ’24 Proposals.
