Don't Delay: Submit Your Abstract for the NAFE Winter Technical Conference in Daytona Beach


We're now soliciting papers for the Saturday Technical Session segment of our annual winter meeting to be held January 19-21, 2024 at The Shores Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach, Fla.

As a Forensic Engineer, preparing a technical paper is a valuable addition to your credentials. One of your membership benefits as a dues payer of NAFE is the ability to publish a peer-reviewed paper in the NAFE Journal. Do you have an idea for a technical paper that will add to the forensic engineering body of knowledge? If so, please review the author submission guidelines on the Journal site, and submit an abstract.

Abstracts are graded based on the strength and clarity of the thesis, conclusion, engineering content, and its perceived appeal or value to the Academy. Note: If you would like to have your abstract reviewed prior to formal submission, please send them to our Editor-In-Chief Bart Kemper at  Abstracts for the Journal are selected based on a blind review by the editorial staff. The Editor-in-Chief does not vote in the process.

The deadline for 150-word maximum abstract submissions for the winter meeting is September 15. Get your abstracts in early – typically there are only 8 spots available per conference. After being reviewed and rated by the Editorial Board, abstracts (up to 8 papers and 2 backups) will be selected for the conference, and authors will be notified. The next key deadline will be 90% draft papers due on November 1, followed by PowerPoint drafts due on November 15.

Please let me know if you have questions or need help registering in OJS before submitting your abstract.

Thank you,
Ellen Parson
NAFE Journal Managing Editor
