Mini-symposium proposal submission guidelines

Mini-symposiums should include 4 speakers. Larger mini-symposiums can be requested, but mind the length of it so that appropiate time-allocation can be arranged. Other variations, such as satellite meetings or discussion panels are also welcomed.

The organizers need to provide the following details:

  • Organizers’ Full name and Affiliations
  • Mini-symposium/satellite/panel title
  • Brief summary (< 250 words) including context and relevance of the activity
  • Speakers’ Full name and Affiliations

At this stage, we are not requesting titles or abstracts of the mini-symposium speakers.

Contributive presentations and posters guidelines

We are accepting contributive talks and contributive posters. All submissions must consist of a title and an abstract consisting of less than 300 words. This must also be submitted in .tex format at the moment of the application. Mind that contributive talks should last less than 25 minutes and posters be presented in A0 pages.
