Submissions for Workshops

Proposals can be submitted for a full-day or a half-day pre-conference workshop.
Preconference workshops will be scheduled on Wednesday 24 August 2022.

Submissions for Symposia

Symposia will be a part of the regular program. Symposia should include a chair and four speakers. The chair of the session can be one of the speakers. Each symposium is 90 minutes and each speaker will have approximately 15 minutes to speak to allow time for questions and discussion. The organiser should submit a proposal as a so-called cover abstract. In response, the organiser will receive a code, which the individual symposium contributors need to submit their presentation abstracts. We urge organisers to submit their cover abstract not later than two weeks before the abstract submission deadline (and thus give the speakers at least two weeks’ time to submit their individual abstract). These abstracts must follow the regular abstract format (see below)/

In case of non-approval or cancellation of the Symposium, individual abstracts will be considered as individual submissions and evaluated on their own merit. If approved, they will be allocated to a regular session.

  • Use font Arial 10 characters per inch (font size 10)
  • Use single spacing and type the text unjustified without hyphenating words at line breaks. Use hard returns only to end headings and paragraphs, not to rearrange lines.

    Ideally, your abstract is structured as follows: Introduction and/or Aim / Materials and Methods / Results / Discussion and/or Conclusion. In structured abstracts, paragraph headings should be typed in bold followed by a colon and by regular text. Do not use the heading ‘Abstract’ and do not put blank lines in between the paragraph headings. Do not list references in the abstract.
