General Information & Deadlines

  1. Abstract MUST be submitted electronically via the online submission system by the given deadline 13 February 2015.
  2. Abstract can be submitted in two different categories (session types) and variety of topics (same for both categories):
    • Regular talks
      - available for anyone
      - oral or poster presentation
      - will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee, who will select the final presentation type
    • Perspective talks
      - for senior researchers
      Senior researchers are invited to submit perspective talks in their area of research. Perspective talks will open the parallel session and should provide an overview of and cover the group’s latest research in a specific area. Once accepted, the talk must be given by the senior researcher (group leader) of the work. The objective is to increase intergenerational networking to give young scientists the opportunity to learn from the more experienced ones.
      - 25 min oral presentation opening a parallel session
      - will be reviewed by the ESB council members and organizers
  3. Abstracts could be amended in the online submission system if “saved as draft” (through the “Saved as draft” button) until the deadline of 30 January 2015. Once the abstract is “submitted” (through the “submit” button) it can no longer be changed.
  4. Abstracts received via fax, e-mail or received after the deadline will not be accepted and therefore will not be considered for the programme or publication.
  5. All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee/ESB Council, who will consider its formal aspects and the content. They will decide which abstracts will be accepted and will assign them to the most suitable presentation type:
    • Regular talks: oral x poster
    • Perspective talks: oral presentation only
  6. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Abstract Book. They will be published as submitted by the authors. Abstracts not suitable for display will be rejected. Please have your abstract checked for correct spelling, punctuation, grammar and formal structure. The organiser reserves the right to edit abstracts if necessary prior to the publication in the Abstract Book.  
  7. All submitters and presenting authors will receive an acceptance/rejection notification via e-mail by 2 April 2015.
  8. All presenting authors are obliged to be registered with no due registration fee by 15 May 2015.

  4. We are particularly interested in how you have implemented your findings in practice and the consequences of this change. Please emphasize this in your abstract, and when presenting make this the focus of your talk/poster.
