General guidelines
Abstracts should contain the following four components:

  • Background
    A concise statement of the issue under investigation or a hypothesis;
  • Material & 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 or graphs 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. Submitters of accepted abstracts agree to attend the meeting and present their abstract as scheduled. 

Notification of abstract acceptance and presentation format 
Notifications of acceptance and format of presentation (oral or poster presentation) will be e-mailed to the submitting author. It is the responsibility of the corresponding/presenting author to inform all co-authors of the status of the abstract. Please notify the Conference Secretariat if you have not received notification by the first week of November. If your abstract is accepted, one author is required to register for the conference and present the paper as scheduled. Guidelines for preparing your oral and/or poster presentations will be sent after your abstract has been accepted.
