Authors names will appear in the order entered by the submitting author. The presenting author (not necessarily the first author) should be identified. All communications regarding an abstract will go to the submitting author, irrespective the designation of the presenting author. Please verify that your email address (submitter and presenting author) is correct as it will be used for contacting you after the review process.
The abstract text should not exceed 400 words (2600 characters, including spaces). If an illustration (photograph/table/figure) is uploaded for inclusion in the abstract, the maximum allowable word count is 300 (2100 characters including spaces). For your abstract you may consider the following outline:
Aim: Clearly state the purpose of the abstract.
Methods: Describe your selection of observations or experimental subjects clearly.
Results: Present your results in a logical sequence in text and tables.
Conclusions: Emphasize new and important aspects of the study (perhaps as a discussion section) and the conclusions that are drawn from them.

Trademarks may be included in the abstract text between brackets, but only once and only the first time the product/service/technology is mentioned.
