Guidelines for the Abstracts

- Abstracts should clearly state research questions, approach, method, data and (expected) results.
- They must be anonymous and should not contain the names of the presenters, or any other information that may reveal their authorship.
- Information about the author (name, affiliation, address) will be provided in the form contained in your personal account on my9SDL.
- Abstracts should not exceed 500 words (including examples but excluding title and references). Only references mentioned in the text may be listed.
- One person may submit a single-authored abstract, a single-authored abstract and a co-authored one (not as first author), or two co-authored abstracts (only one as first author). Presentations will be maximally 20 minutes, allowing 10 minutes for discussion and room changes.
- French and English are the official languages of the conference. Your abstract should be written in one of the two languages in order to facilitate the reviewing process. The oral presentation may be carried out in French, English, German or Italian.

Reviewing Procedure:

Abstracts will be selected by a two-blind review, from a panel of at least 20 reviewers. The acceptance of a paper depends on the quality of the abstract. A series of abstracts that have not been retained after the reviewing process will be reserved as alternative presentations on a waiting list in case of cancelations.
