Poster Abstract Submission

It is no longer possible to submit and abstract

There will be four poster sessions at the conference on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons, covering all of the 20 session topics for the conference. You are invited to submit an abstract on original work for presentation as a poster if you wish. It is not necessary to present a poster in order to participate in the conference.

All abstracts submitted will be reviewed by the committee and you will be notified by the beginning of April 2013 if your poster has been accepted. The committee will also select 16 of the submissions to be presented as a ”Hot Topic” talk during the conference. When submitting an abstract you will be asked to indicate if you are prepared to give a talk based on the abstract.

You do not need to be registered for the conference before submitting an abstract for a poster, but once your abstract has been accepted the presenting author or one of the co-authors should be at the conference.

If the submitting author is not able to participate in the conference please contact the organisers to inform them of any changes. You can select one of the co-authors of the poster to be the new presenting author or withdraw the abstract so that it will not be included in the final programme. Whatever you decide, please contact the organisers immediately, to let them know of any changes to your submission.

On submission of an abstract you will receive an identifier code which should be included when you register for the conference and used if you need to contact the organisers regarding the abstract submission.

Please complete the submission process for each poster you would like to present.

Preparation of Abstract

The documents below detail how an abstract should be prepared for submission, including page size, fonts and layout. The final abstracts will be distributed electronically so full colour images can be included.

Poster size
