Presentation guidelines

Abstract presentation guidelines

Abstracts must be submitted electronically through the on-line abstracts submission form. No abstracts sent by other means (fax, post, e-mail) will be accepted.

Abstracts must be written in english and must not exceed 250 words.Each participant may submit one abstract as a presenting author, either for oral presentation, poster session, or either. All submitted abstracts will be accepted for presentation.

Type your abstract using any word processor and, once finished, “copy and paste” it into the abstract submission form. You can type it there directly if you prefer. Tables, graphics, figures and images cannot be included in the abstract. Do not include the title and authors in the abstract main text box; these will be collected automatically from the headings. If you need to include special characters, use the following list of codes.

Once the abstract has been submitted, the presenting author will receive an e-mail message as confirmation of receipt stating the submission reference number. Abstracts can be modified at any time before 24/03/2013 by using your reference number. The notification of acceptance, the stating of the final reference number and details of day and time for presentation will be sent by the Secretariat to the Contact author by e-mail by 2/05/2013.

If you have not received information concerning your abstract by that date, please contact to

Details of abstracts will appear in the program exactly as submitted. Authors are requested to follow the rules and guidelines strictly. Authors are solely responsible for the correctness and accuracy of the data submitted.
