General remarks

  • Abstracts should be short (400–500 words), clear, concise and written in English with correct spelling and good sentence structure.
  • Mathematical symbols and equations must be typed in, and metric symbols should be used. Figures and tables must not be included.
  • We recommend that the abstract is carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular with regard to the list of authors, before submission in order to avoid last minute changes.
  • The submission of an abstract obliges the author or at least one of the co-authors to actually present the abstract at the conference.
