TOTA invites prospective presenters to submit proposals to the TOTA 2024 Annual Conference.  This year we are using a new software platform for managing the call for proposals called Oxford Abstracts.  You will need to create a username and password to submit your proposal.  All email communications will be conducted through this platform to improve communication and efficiency of the call for proposal process.  

We anticipate a few glitches along the way, but with a little patience, this new platform will improve the overall submission, review, and selection process.

General Submission Requirements - Partial Submissions will not be accepted and deleted from the system. Gather all necessary information before beginning your submission.
Please Do Not submit an incomplete submission! Incomplete submissions will be deleted from the system.
