Abstract Submission Instructions

Please read through the submission instructions listed below before preparing your abstract:

Step 1: Write your abstract into a .doc or .txt file following the Abstract Format Guidelines (below).

Step 2: Read the General Policies and Requirements (below) for the submission of abstracts.

Step 3: Using the online abstract submission portal, create an account and submit your abstract.

Abstract Submission closes Sunday 2nd September 2018.


Abstract Format Guidelines

When submitting your abstract online, do not include your abstract title and author references in the Word document or plain text file. You will be asked for this information separately and these will be automatically added for you during submission. Please therefore submit a Word document or plain text file with your abstract body only.

Abstracts must not exceed a 300 word limit. The word limit relates only to the text of the abstract and does not include title, authors and institutions or the summary.

Submissions will allow a title of up to 100 characters in length to be submitted.

Abstracts must be free of typographical and grammatical errors.

Standard abbreviations may be used for common terms only. Otherwise, any abbreviation should be given in brackets after the first full use of the word. Abbreviations may be used in the title, provided the name in full is outlined in the body of the abstract.


General Policies and Requirements

All abstracts must be original work.

The presenting author will be required to register for the conference in order to ensure their abstract(s) is included in the final program.


Notification of Acceptance

Notifications of acceptance will be sent via e-mail to the submitting author on 21st September 2018.

Abstracts submitted for oral presentations that cannot be accommodated within the program will be considered and reviewed for a place in the poster category.
