NZ24 Call for Abstract Submissions Closed

The period for abstract submissions for the 2024 Net Zero Conference is now closed. Abstracts will be scored and selected by a committee of diverse, nationally leading industry experts. The criteria for selection include diverse perspectives, speaker experience, and relevance to the NZ24 focus areas. Awarded abstract speakers will be contacted via email in mid-May with an invitation to speak. You will receive an email notification if you were not selected. 

If you missed the deadline, then we look forward to seeing your submission next year! 

Submission Guidelines

The Net Zero Conference abstract submission process is highly competitive with an acceptance rate of approximately 20%, as our speaking opportunities provide valuable access and visibility to leaders in the climate space. Please follow the guidelines below to increase your chances of submitting a successful abstract:

  • All abstracts must be submitted online through the Net Zero Conference website. Emailed, faxed, or mailed proposals will not be accepted.
  • All complete proposals must be submitted, with all speakers’ details confirmed, and all program policies accepted, by Monday, April 15th, 2024 by 11:59 pm PST. To increase the quality of abstracts received and decrease duplicate proposal submissions, the proposal submitter will be charged a one-time processing fee of $25 for each proposal submitted.
  • We are committed to a speaker lineup comprised of at least 50% women and 50% people of color. Please strongly consider this when assembling your panel as this is a highly valued component of successful applicants.
  • Abstract submissions with multiple speakers are generally more compelling to accept. While single-presenter submissions are not prohibited, high value is placed on submissions with multiple speakers.
  • Speaker panels are limited to 5 people or less. Please contact staff at to inquire about exceptions.

All sessions will be presented in person; no proposals for virtual presentations will be accepted.

Selected speakers will receive 50% off their conference pass for themselves and a plus one.

General Session Information: All speaking slots are 45 minutes. This includes time for Q&A. Please plan accordingly.
