Submitting an abstract
Abstracts are sought for oral or poster presentations in the thematic tracks. Please indicate your first preference (oral or poster) when submitting your abstract. Abstracts that are not accepted for an oral presentation will automatically be considered for a poster presentation.
Your choice of thematic track will assist the organising committee to assign reviewers for your abstract. You may also nominate keywords to assist with reviewer assignment.
Including formatting and special characters (e.g. Greek or mathematical symbols)
Formatting and special characters can be included via the use of HTML tags. Lists of tags are widely available online, for example here.
Some examples of formatting:
Bold: text1 will give text1
Italic: text2 will give text2
Underline: text3 will give text3
Superscript: text4 will give text4
Subscript: text5 will give text5
Some examples of special characters:
Lower case alpha: α will give α
Lower case beta: β will give β
Lower case pi: π will give π
To write eiπ - 1 = 0, you must type: eipi - 1 = 0
