You can submit your abstract online between 1–26 August. Check your abstract before you submit: accepted abstracts will be published as received. The person submitting the abstract must accept full responsibility for the submission; this person will receive all email notifications about acceptance and presentation status.
Your abstract will need to include these sections: background; method; results; conclusion. Inclusion of acknowledgements and references is optional. There is a word limit of 300 words excluding the title, acknowledgements and references. Your abstract should not contain tables or diagrams.
A ‘blind’ peer review process is used to select abstracts therefore you must refrain from entering identifying details, such as author names, in the title or body of the abstract. Abstracts containing identifying details will be withdrawn and will not be reviewed.
A maximum of three abstracts can be presented by one presenting author. If your research group wishes to submit more than three abstracts please select a different presenting author for every set of three abstracts.
All presenting authors must register to attend the Conference and pay the appropriate registration fee by Friday 27 September 2013. Poster and oral presentations will take place on Monday 4 and Tuesday 5 November 2013 so please ensure the presenting author is available to attend on both these days.
Accepted abstracts for which there is no presenting author registered will be withdrawn and will not appear in Conference materials.
