Proposal Submission

Abstracts should be sent by April 12, 2013 through the online system EasyAbs: Applicants are invited to include “Prize for the Best Communication” under the paper title in the abstract and select the option “Oral Presentation + Prize” when submitting their proposals via EasyAbs. On the basis of the ranking of the abstracts, the Advisory Committee will set up an internal shortlist with nominees for the prizes.

General Session

Abstracts for 20-minute presentations (plus ten-minute discussion) should be no more than 500 words (plus references, tables and figures), and should also include 4 or 5 keywords. Candidates may submit: (i) a single-authored abstract; (ii) a single-authored abstract and a co-authored one (not as first author) or (iii) two co-authored abstracts (only one as first author).

Round Tables

Round Tables last a maximum of 90 minutes. The proposal should include not more than 5 presentations of ten minutes each. Round tables should have a discussant that will act as debate moderator; debate time should take at least 40 minutes. Round Table proposals should have a general description of the aims of the session, and one abstract for each of the presentations. All abstracts should comply with the same specifications as the abstracts for the General Session.
