Call for Papers

Important dates

New dates for Poster/Symposia submission and Registration will be announced in the Autumn.

Notes on submission guidelines

The abstract must be in one paragraph and cannot contain more than 250 words. The 250 word limit does not include the title, author or affiliation information.

NOTE: Please do not add formatting to your abstract and do not enter the abstract title, author names, or affiliations in all uppercase or all lowercase letters.


Posters should be size A0 and should be in portrait format. If you want to be considered for a micro-talk session then you should check the appropriate box when you submit your abstract.

Individual Talks

Individual talks should be 15 minutes long. We will group individual talks into thematic sessions. If we receive too many submissions for individual talks, we may ask you to present a poster (and potentially mini talk) instead.

Micro-Talk Session

A Micro-Talk Session will cover a series of 5-minute talks, each showing just a bite-sized bit of research/artwork. It is a very quick overview of some of the most exciting works presented at the congress in the poster sessions. If you would like to be considered for this session, indicate that when submitting your poster (choose Poster and Micro-Talk Session). Selected abstracts will then be scheduled into the Micro-Talk Session in addition to a poster session.

Symposia submission

If you would like to submit a symposium on a special interest topic, please submit a single file (word, pdf) containing the symposium summary and an abstract for each of the talks in the symposium.

The file should contain the following information:

  • Title and abstract of your symposium
  • Name and affiliations and contact details of the chair of the symposium
  • List of talks included in the Symposium. Each talk should contain the following information: title of the abstract, authors, authors’ affiliations, abstract text.

NOTE: The summary and each abstract must be a single paragraph not exceeding 250 words each. The 250 word limit does not include the title, author or affiliation information.

In the Symposium session the chair is responsible for assurance of adherence to the rules and of the merit of the presentation. Symposiums are schedule for 90 minutes. We recommend a symposium session should include four 15 minutes talks and 30 minutes for final discussion. There is a certain degree of flexibility for other ideas. Please contact the organisers if you would like to propose a small event in a different format.
