Other information

Abstract requirements

  • Maximum of 300 words
  • Do not insert any tables or figures as your abstract will be as plain text, rather than an uploaded document
  • Check spelling and grammar. Submitted material will be published in conference materials - the abstract should, therefore, contain no errors
  • Standard scientific abbreviations may be used - non-standard abbreviations should be included in parenthesis after the first use of the full word
  • Do not indent paragraphs
  • Present sufficient data to support conclusions - it is unsatisfactory to use statements such as "data will be presented" or "results will be discussed".

Publication of abstracts
Accepted abstracts will be posted on the conference website and published in the conference app. By submitting your abstract you agree to this condition.

All presenters are required to register and pay to attend the conference. Presenters must be registered by 1 September.
