How to submit an abstract?

Abstracts can only be submitted by conference participants upon registration. The registration form is set up in such a way that the abstract section can also be completed/edited after your registration is complete: you can therefore choose to submit one abstract at the time of registration, or at a later date (or not submit an abstract at all). Once your registration and payment are complete, you will receive a confirmation email with a link allowing you to fill, complete, or edit the abstract details – within the deadlines below.

Abstract submission deadlines

  • To be considered for oral presentations: May 1, 2020 (23:59 CEST)
  • For poster presentation: Aug. 1, 2020 (23:59 CEST)

If you submit your abstract by May 1, 2020 you can also ask for it to be considered for a contributed oral presentation (15 minutes), otherwise, if you only want to present a poster, you have until Aug. 1, 2020 to submit it. Note that if you have asked for your abstract to be considered for a contributed oral presentation, the status on May 1 is final: no further modification or update will be taken into account after that date.

The choice of oral presentations will be made in May by the organizers of the symposium for which you submitted your abstract. There will be approximately 170 contributed oral presentations.

Abstract format

Abstract details are entered directly into the registration form. After choosing the symposium for which you want to submit your abstract, you will be required to enter the following information into the form fields:

  • Title
  • Authors
The list of authors must include your name, and you must present the poster or oral contribution
  • Affiliations
Example format: (1) EPFL, Switzerland, (2) University of Somewhere, Country, (3) Princeton University, USA
  • Text of abstract (max 150 words – longer texts will be cut)
Formatting: In case your abstract text requires special formatting (subscripts, greek letters, formulas, etc.), please enter them in LaTeX format. Example: molecule $H_2O$, parameter $\alpha$, conference $\Psi_k$.
