Abstract & Presenter Guidelines

Submission Guidelines

  Abstracts can be submitted through this link. You may submit only one abstract as first author. Abstracts are limited to 300 words. This does not include title, authors, and affiliations. Additional space is provided for funding acknowledgments and for declaration of commercial interests and conflicts. Your abstract should consist of an introduction, methods and results sections, and a conclusion. It is not required that the sections be explicitly labeled as such. It is, however, important that each abstract contains sufficiently detailed descriptions of the methods and the results. Please do not submit an abstract of work that you are planning to do. Abstracts of preliminary results are however encouraged.
  1. Talk Preferred– If you are not chosen to give a talk, you will be chosen to give a poster.
  2. Poster Preferred– You would be willing to give a talk if asked.
  3. Poster Only– You are not willing to give a talk.
  The scientific committee evaluates all submitted abstracts and those with the strongest evaluation and adequacy will be selected as talks by the organizing committee. The authors will be informed about the outcome of the reviewing process early October 2021. All correspondence, including notification of abstract acceptance and details for poster and talk presentations, will be sent to the “corresponding author” (submitting author) via email. The corresponding author shall be responsible for informing all contributing authors of any related correspondence.
  • Submissions : Closed 
  • Notification of Accepted Abstracts: October 12 2021

Poster Guidelines

  All poster sessions will be held in the main conference hall. Posters should be put up during the morning coffee break, and taken down at the end of the day. Poster boards are 1m80 in height and 1m in width, portrait orientation. The number of your poster board is as indicated in the online program. Please be courteous and take down your poster promptly at the end of the day so that the board is empty for the next day. We will provide the adequate Velcro tape to hang the posters on the board. Please do not use your own.

Talk Guidelines

  There will be one oral session of 5 talks each day. Your talk should not exceed 12 minutes in length to leave room for 3 minutes of questions/discussions. Presenters are encouraged to test their presentation during the morning coffee break. Please arrive at the Talk Room no less than 30 minutes before the start of your session. A laptop will be at the presenter’s disposal. Presentations can be also made from personal Mac or PC laptop; in this case we ask the presenter to bring the necessary adapters to connect to the projector via HDMI.
