Before You Register

Everyone planning to attend ORD on Friday, March 6th, 2020 will need to register for the event.




  1. Go to the Registration page
  2. Select the role you will play– attendee, submitting author, or co-author/presenter
  3. Fill out the registration form
  4. Check your email for a confirmation email containing your password


If you do not recieve an e-mail as soon as you finish registering, check your junk folder.




Once you are registered for the event, you will have the ability to edit your registration information by logging into the system using your email adress and computer generated password sent to you via email.




Once you register, you will also have the ability to submit an abstract by logging into the system.


If you are working with a team, please assign one individual to submit the abstract. This person will be the submitting author. Only a submitting author will be able to submit and edit an abstract to avoid duplication in the system.


The submitting author will have the ability to add co-authors and link them to the abstract. At the time of abstract submission, the submitting author will need to have the following information for each of the co-authors:


  • First Name
  • Middle Initial
  • Last Name
  • Emial Address (make sure this email is the same one the co-author used for registration)
  • Institutional Affiliation

The submitting author must list the co-authors in order for the names to be included in the abstract booklet. Co-authors names that are not listed in the abstract submission process will not be printed.




As soon as the submitting author links co-authors to an abstract, co-authors will receive an email alerting them that they have been added as co-authors to an abstract. Once a co-author is linked to an abstract, they will be able to view the submitted abstract by logging into the system using their email address and password that was sent to them via email when they registered. 


Co-authors will need to coordinate with their submitting author to edit the abstract.
