Late-Breaking Abstract Submission

Abstract Submission for ASC 2020 is closed. We look forward to your submission for ASC 2022.

We understand that it has been some time since the close of abstract submissions. We remind authors that abstract content changes, i.e. modification of title or body, will be referred for approval by the Program Committee. Corrections, i.e. spelling or grammar, or author changes, i.e. designation of different presenting author, changes to affiliations, changes to names, etc., can be completed without referral to the Program Committee. In either case, please contact Centennial Conferences by e-mail at and please specify whether you need a change or a correction in the e-mail subject line along with the Control ID.

Speaker Registration Requirement: Administration of the virtual conference platform requires that each presentation be associated with a single unique registration. Each speaker must be registered to attend the virtual conference. Registration includes access to the virtual meeting platforms and exhibits, to make one presentation, and to submit one manuscript submission.

Multiple Presentations: Authors with existing abstracts must also consider the logistical restrictions on multiple presentations. Attendees who are presenting authors for multiple presentations will be contacted by e-mail no later than August 13 to identify co-authors who can be registered to give the presentation and publication. Instructions for identifying co-authors and handling of special circumstances will be described in the email to authors.

Please read the abstract submission information below before submitting your abstract.

Abstract submissions for ASC 2020 should address at least one of the areas below. 

  1. Advances in the science of superconductors relevant to applications. Abstracts describing basic materials, films, or artificial structures should discuss properties interesting for applications, forms used in applications such as elementary conductors or simple circuits, or structural or compositional aspects that potentially lead to use in a device. Theoretical content should address topics relevant to applications, operations, or behavior of practical systems. Experimental studies, test methods, and data should relate to aspects of superconductivity important for applications in some way.
  2. Advances in superconducting technology. Abstracts may describe concepts, design, modelling, manufacturing or fabrication, and operation or implementation of superconducting devices or components. Extensions of conventional technologies by the use of superconductivity should emphasize the role of superconductivity in the device or component. Abstracts may describe non-superconducting technologies that are required for the use of superconductors, such as insulation, provided that the primary discussion is focused on applied superconductivity.
  3. Integration of superconducting devices and components in systems. Abstracts may discuss sub-systems or full systems comprised of components such as cables, magnets, detectors, circuits, and so on. Discussions may include components and processes that support superconducting devices, such as cryogenic systems supporting superconducting magnets. Studies of power devices, transportation systems, electricity transmission, energy storage, and other systems that use superconducting components should emphasize the role of superconductivity or the particular aspects of superconductivity important to the system or application. Cryogenics, non-superconducting materials at cryogenic temperature, power supplies, power electronics, and other ancillary topics may be considered provided the connection to applied superconductivity is clear. Also, abstracts may describe facilities to verify operation of components, report system tests, or describe the status of superconducting systems and projects using superconducting components.

To meet the requirements for publishing in IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity (TAS), the abstracts should align with one of the categories 11-95 listed here unless they are part of a special topic session organized by the conference.

Late-Breaking Abstract Submission Deadline: August 31, 2020 (11:59 p.m., EDT)

This deadline will be STRICTLY observed in fairness to all potential presenters, and the submission site will not accept abstracts after this date.

  • Abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee. All abstracts must be about applied superconductivity, must be written in the English language, must contain enough information to permit placement of the presentation into the program, and must make logical arguments based on scientific or engineering methods. The Program Committee reserves the right to reject abstracts that do not conform to these guidelines.
  • Formatting will be performed by the abstract management system, please prepare information in plain text. Abstract titles must be in mixed/sentence case.
  • Some symbols (e.g., Greek letters) can be used in the abstract submission, however, if your symbol does not paste correctly (you should be able to see it on the screen), then please substitute the corresponding plain text.
  • Contact information is required for the Submitting Author and the Presenting Author (which may be, but are not necessarily, the same person). Authors are responsible for the accuracy of all submitted information.
  • Submitting author email addresses will be added to the ASC email list (if not already on the list) to ensure that conference announcements are received.
  • The control number assigned to an abstract once it is submitted is the primary means of identifying an abstract until the program is formed. Please use the control number in any correspondence concerning abstracts until a program number has been issued.
  • Length restrictions include spaces and are as follows:

♦ Title and Abstract Content/Body: 3000 characters
♦ Acknowledgment: 300 characters

  • A confirmation step will permit authors to verify all content and give final approval. Only completed and approved submissions will be reviewed for technical program consideration.
  • Notice of acceptance for inclusion in the ASC 2020 Program will be sent electronically to the Submitting and Presenting Authors mid-September, 2020.

REMINDER: If you have an accepted abstract, PLEASE DO NOT submit a new abstract if you need to make corrections (i.e. changes of spelling or single words) or changes (i.e. involving title or content). Please contact Centennial Conferences by email at
