Short Guideline for Abstract Submission:
  • Abstract Submission is only possible via the online-form. Abstracts that are not submitted online will not be accepted!
  • If you have never used this abstract submission system before, please first create a new account. With this account you will be able to edit your submitted paper(s) until the submission will be closed on March 1, 2009.
  • If you intend to submit several papers please only create one account and submit all your papers via this personal account
  • Technical advices:
    • Please prepare your paper only in the following formats: .rtf., .txt. or .doc. enter/copy parts of your text from your text editing programme and paste these into relevant abstract sections
    • Charts, table, graphics and pictures cannot be inserted into the abstract, special characters may be included though.
    • The maximum number of words is 200.
    • Please, format your paper only in a standard font as “Arial” or “Times New Roman”; the formatting for use of your paper within the abstract book will be done automatically after submission by the system.
    • More details on the technical use of the abstract submission system is provided directly within the submission process.
