Scientists from academia and industry are invited to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentations describing original research in any of the conference scientific topics. The scientific committee will select the type of contribution (oral or posters) based on the review of abstracts.
Please use the abstract form to prepare your submission:
The abstract title should be less than 160 characters and must not be written in capital letters. Non-standard abbreviations should be avoided in titles, but may be used in the text if they are defined at first usage. The abstract should include the name of the presenting author underlined and affiliations of all authors. The body of the abstract should not exceed 1600 characters. Standard abbreviations and SI units must be used. Please ensure that your abstract does not include tables, charts or figures.
The scientific committee will select the type of contribution (oral or posters) based on the review of abstracts.
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 1st March, 2019
You can submit one abstract.
The corresponding author will receive an e-mail confirming the successful submission of the abstract. Authors submitting abstracts and bursary applications will be notified by the 18th April about final acceptance. Please note: Once your abstract has been accepted by the scientific committee, it is subject to payment of the registration fee for the meeting, otherwise your abstract will not be included.
Once the abstract has been submitted, changes, corrections or rewording will be possible until the 26th February, 2019. After this date changes will not be possible. Careful typing and proofreading are essential, as the abstract will be published as submitted.
The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission. Abstract submission does not constitute registration for the conference. Abstract presenters must register to attend the conference by following the instructions for registration.
Authors will be asked to indicate to which of the programme’s streams their abstract should be submitted.
A number of abstracts will be selected for oral presentation in the programme. All other qualifying abstracts will be selected for poster presentations.
Posters must be brought to the meeting by the presenting author and should not be mailed in advance. The required dimensions are 84 cm (width) by 120 cm (height) corresponding to an A0 format. At the top of a poster, please provide the title of the paper, names of the authors and their affiliations, all in bold lettering of about 2.5 to 3 cm size. Artwork and lettering should be large and clear enough so that the poster is readable from a distance of 1.5 m.
