Online abstract submission is now open. To submit an abstract, click on the Abstract Submission-button on the right. Abstract submissions will only be accepted from the presenting author. All correspondence regarding the status of the abstract will be sent only to the presenting author.
The abstract submission deadline is 1 November.
Abstracts should contain the following four components:
- Background: a concise statement of the issue under investigation or a hypothesis;
- Materials & Methods: the experimental methods used (including the statistical analyses employed);
- Results: specific findings (promises such as "to be completed" or "to be presented" are not acceptable);
- Conclusions: a summary of findings that are supported by your results (statistical analyses used to support the conclusions, where appropriate, should be included; concluding statements such as "the results will be discussed" are not acceptable).
Please note that abstracts cannot be accepted if tables, graphs, grant acknowledgements or literature references are included.
The maximum word count for the abstract body is 500 words.
Abstracts are considered official communications to the conference and will be treated confidentially. For those abstracts that are accepted, submitters agree to attend the meeting and present their abstract as scheduled.
Authors can submit their abstracts electronically using the button on the right "Abstract Submission". You will be redirected to the submission website. Please follow the step-by-step directions, which will enable you to upload the abstract.
To ensure your abstract retains any special characters or formatting, the abstract must be in Microsoft Word format.
