We decided to set the deadline for abstract submission to 22 January. This will give us time for review and put together a programme with presenters.

The abstract has to be max. 500 words, excluding the title and author information. Furthermore we ask you to:

  • have a concise title,
  • include all author names and affiliations,
  • include a corresponding author with email address,
  • 3 keywords that capture the essence of your work.

Presenters guidelines:

  • 5 minute presentation
  • Prepare a research poster
    • Title is short and draws interest,
    • Word count of about 300 to 800 words,
    • Text is clear and to the point,
    • Use of bullets, numbering, and headlines make it easy to read,
    • Effective use of graphics, color and fonts.
    • Online there is a lot of information about how to make a good and attractive poster, see e.g.
  • Submission deadline 31 January. We will make all posters available online so that participants can view them and prepare questions for the discussion.
