Call for Abstracts

Abstract submission opening day: 14 September 2016
Abstract submission deadline: 10 October 2016


To submit a poster abstract, please follow this link and select Poster as the presentation type. Please note that places in the Student Poster Slam are limited to approximately 30 participants and first priority will be given to eligible students who submitted their abstract early.

As part of the abstract submission process, we also request information on your career status (student or ECR) as well as your gender. This is to assist us to assist us in ensuring that all delegates have equal opportunity to participate in the conference. For more information, please see the Policies link at left.

Your choice of scientific 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 Markdown (HTML tags) or LaTex commands. Some commonly used tags are available in the abstract editor, for example bold and italic formatting. More comprehensive lists of tags are widely available online, for example here.

Some further examples of formatting and special characters, using HTML tags:
     Superscript: text will give text
     Subscript: text will give text
     Lower case alpha: α will give α
     Lower case pi: π will give π
     To write eiπ - 1 = 0, you must type: ei π - 1 = 0

The abstract submission window includes a preview of your formatted text. To view how your submitted abstract body will appear in the conference handbook, you can also go to the View my abstracts link in the main menu, and then export it in pdf format. Note that an abstract can be edited at any time up until the submission deadline (see below).

Editing or withdrawing an abstract

Abstracts may be edited or withdrawn up until the submission deadline. To edit or withdraw an abstract, click on View my abstracts link in the main menu, and then select the abstract you wish to modify.
