Revised abstracts

Please upload your revised abstract (in pdf format) in ConfTool by May 31 2018, using this template.



If your talk/poster submission has been accepted, as a long talk, short talk, or poster, you are invited to submit a longer paper to the conference proceedings. Contribution is voluntary. Please first download the guidelines and read them carefully. After completing your text, upload it to ConfTool. Deadline: 31 May 2018.



Printed posters in DIN-A0 format (portrait orientation) will be displayed at each hub in regular poster sessions. Every poster can also be presented in any number (preferably all) of the following ways:

  • Electronic (pdf, DIN-A4) in the password-protected conference system, for electronic discussion.  You will upload this yourself and there is no deadline.
  • Introductory video. The guideline is here and the submission deadline is 31 May 2018.
  • Live lightning presentation (one minute). For this, bring a short ppt file to the conference.



At this conference, all AV materials for presenting talks must be stored on USB sticks. It will not be possible to plug a laptop into our system. This is due to the added complexity of live streaming, switching between one-way presentation and two-way discussion mode, mixing sound and images and so on, and the cost of technical support. Speakers who wish to run special software during their talk are asked instead to prepare video examples and incorporate them into a ppt file or similar. Please bring two data sticks with all materials stored on both. Please also have a pdf version of your talk ready in case there is a problem with ppt.
