Please include your name and affiliation in the abstract – these will subsequently be removed for the purpose of the anonymous review process. Therefore, avoid making any direct references to your own previous work or indicating the authorship of the abstract in any other way. If you need to refer to yourself, please use “AUTHOR” instead of your name.

You will be notified of the results of the abstract evaluation procedure by May 10, 2015.
