Be a Presenter

Abstracts may be submitted for oral or poster presentations between 15 February and 3 June, 2013.

Guidelines for abstracts:

  • Abstracts submitted for presentation will be reviewed by an international panel of experts and chosen based on ranking by the Scientific Committee.
  • The presenting author is obliged to ascertain that all authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission to the 2013 International Expert Meeting on CMN and NCM.
  • The presenter and co-authors must identify any financial interest in products or processes described in the abstract.
  • In submitting an abstract, all authors certify that the information to be reported is for exclusive presentation in the session to which the abstract will be assigned, if accepted. This information should not be presented at any other preceding conference, and novel, unpublished results must constitute part or the entire abstract at the time of submission.
  • Notification of receipt and acceptance will be sent only to the corresponding author.
  • Abstracts may only be submitted via this website and in English.
  • The abstract title should be limited to 30 words.
  • The abstract should include the first author's and all co-authors’ names and affiliations or institutions. The first or last author, who is registered and will be attending the conference to present the work, should be indicated with an asterisk (*).
  • The body of the abstract must be concise and have fewer than 300 words. The online abstract submission procedure will not accept abstracts exceeding this limit. Color illustrations may be printed in black and white in the abstract book at the discretion of the organizers.
  • The use of standard abbreviations is desirable. A special or unusual abbreviation must be placed (in round brackets) after the first appearance of the word(s) for which it stands.

Instructions for online submission (15 February to 3 June 2013):

  • Please follow the instructions on the screen. For questions regarding the online submission process, please contact us.
  • Authors will be asked to select a topic category referring to the main subject of the abstract and may indicate a presentation preference (oral, poster or no preference). Final decisions on the presentation format and categorization will be made by the Scientific Committee.
  • When finalizing the online submission, only clicking the “submit” button will register the abstract; a message will then appear informing you of its successful submission. The abstract submitter will receive an e-mail confirming this. This confirmation of abstract receipt is NOT a notice of acceptance of your abstract.
  • In case no confirmation is received by e-mail, the abstract submitter should contact the conference organizers within one week after submission of the abstract.
  • Submitting an abstract for presentation does not constitute registration for the conference. Abstract presenters must register to attend the Expert Meeting separately.
  • Careful typing and proofreading are essential, as the abstract will be published as submitted. 

Poster Guidelines

  • Maximum poster size is A0 format (118 cm high x 84 cm wide, or 47 x 33 inches).
  • Poster presenters will be required at least spend an hour next to their posters to explain the science to the audience.
  • Posters are grouped by topic and are displayed throughout the meeting.
  • Multiple posters may be submitted by an author, but each poster should be presented by a different presenter (co-authors).
