Abstract Submisson

The deadline for abstract submission is May,  31th 2019. You can choose which form of presentation (poster, talk) you would prefer. After the abstract submission deadline we will inform you whether you can give a talk, a short talk or present your poster. In case you signed up for an oral presentation but will not get one, we will automatically shift you to “poster presentation”. Please consider the guidelines for your abstract submission. 

Guidelines for Abstract Submission, Poster, Presentations and Talks


  • Abstracts can only be submitted online.
  • The abstract language must be in English.
  • Please include your first name and last name in the file name
  • The title of the abstract may not exceed 200 characters (including spaces).
  • The abstract text and references may not be longer than 300 words.
  • Font: Calibri; Header: bold, size 12; author 6 affiliations: size 10; text: size 11, justified; single-spaced line.
  • Figures, tables and other graphics are not allowed.
  • Send your abstract as a Word or Open Office file
  • Please follow the provided template.


The poster should fulfill the following criteria:

  • Poster size is A0 (841 x 1189 mm) and should be printed in portrait format.
  • All text should be in English.

Pins to fix the poster to the poster walls will be provided.


Please schedule your talk as follows:

  • There will be 12 minutes available for presenting plus 3 minutes for discussion, making 15 minutes at all for general talks. Please make sure to not exceed the time limit. It is a common habit that people (even well established scientists) overrun their assigned time limits. Please do not be selfish and stick to the time frame, which will make it easier for all other presenters as well as the audience.
  • For keynote lectures there will be 45 minutes for presenting and 15 minutes for discussion available. The keynote speakers are already selected and confirmed.
