Author Guidelines

Text abstracts are limited to 300 words in total length, including references (if any), and should fully but briefly describe the context for the work or idea to be presented, results or anticipated results, and their interpretation/significance.

Contributors are invited to also submit an extended abstract (EA) describing their work. These should be prepared using the EA template (link) and uploaded as a supplementary MS Word file with the abstract submission. The length limit for EAs is 2 pages in total length (including title/author information, figures and references) using the formatting specified in the template. EAs should be fully referenced and may include figures (embedded within the submission file as 300 dpi RGB jpeg images) if desired. EAs will be reviewed independently by the meeting's scientific committee and a citable digital volume containing all accepted EAs will be published through the Open Journal System shortly after the meeting.
