MWSUG 2024 Call for Presentations and Presenter Information

The Call for Presentations is now open!

We want you! SAS software is so rich in function and application that everyone is an expert on something. This year, share your expertise with fellow users at MWSUG 2024.

Below is some of the essential information to guide you as you create your paper, presentation, and/or e-poster. Before submitting a presentation proposal, please review the information below carefully. If you have any questions about your proposal or the submission process, please contact the Academic Chair, Misty Johnson, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

To submit your abstract, visit the MWSUG Content Submission System.

Submission Basics

Your proposed presentation will need to include a title of no more than 250 characters and a summary (abstract) of no more than 250 words. You will also be asked to provide the name of each author along with each author's affiliation (company, etc.), email address, and a short biography of no more than 75 words. Biographies should be written in the third person.

To improve the chances of your presentation being selected for the conference, it is strongly recommended that you include an outline, detailed summary, or draft paper or slides. This will give the section chair a better idea of the content, style, and quality of your presentation .

Presentation Options and Sections

There are several ways to present: 50-minute presentations, 20-minute presentations, 10-minute "Quick Tips", and e-posters. There will be several concurrent sections or presentation tracks at the conference. For your proposed presentation, the title, abstract, working draft (if provided), and categories that you select to characterize your presentation will help our reviewers decide which section would be appropriate. If we are in doubt as to the best choice, we will talk to you.

Paper Guidelines

Although papers are not required this year, we encourage you to submit a companion paper with the presentation. The papers will be published as part of the official Conference Proceedings at the MWSUG website. To meet the expectations for publication in the Proceedings, please refer to the MWSUG 2024 Paper Guidelines, Paper Template, and other tools available in our Presenter Resources.

Presenter Obligations

In order to sustain the high quality of past MWSUG conferences for our participants, authors are required to follow several guidelines and deadlines. In fact, before an abstract is accepted for presentation, author(s) are provided by their section chair a complete list and agree to comply. If any of these guidelines or deadlines are not met, MWSUG reserves the right to remove the abstract and presentation from the Conference Schedule and exclude the paper from the Conference Proceedings. Here are four of the more notable requirements:

  1. Submit the Copyright Grant Form signed by all authors on or before October 4, 2024;
  2. Submit a final paper (optional) or presentation in PDF format consistent with the MWSUG Submission Guidelines on or before October 4, 2024; and
  3. Register for the conference on or before the early registration deadline of October 11, 2024. Registration opens on June 17, 2024.
  4. Be available to present your paper at any point during the conference from 8:00am Monday (November 18, 2024) through 4:00pm Tuesday (November 19, 2024). Due to the complexity of the scheduling process, special scheduling requests cannot be honored. Make your travel plans accordingly.
