ICPC 2018 Call for papers

Submission of Abstracts for Regular Sessions and Special Symposia 

Abstracts consist of 300-400 words (excluding references) and 3-7 keywords. They should not exceed one A4 page including references. The format is: 12 point Times New Roman font, single-lined, margins set to 2.54 cm (1 inch) all around. Doulos SIL (http://scripts.sil.org/DoulosSILfont) is to be used for phonetic symbols.

Abstracts for regular sessions will be submitted to submit@ismbs.eu as email attachments in both word and pdf versions by 20 January 2018. The word version must include name(s) of author(s), affiliation(s), and email address(es), while the pdf version excludes all these. Preference for oral or poster presentation is indicated at the bottom of the abstract. Previously published works, including own, must be cited using name and year in parenthesis.

Proposals for special symposia comprising 3-6 presentations each will be submitted to submit@ismbs.eu by 20 November 2017. Upon submission of the symposium proposal, please provide information on the theme of the special symposium, the exact number of presentations, and the names of contributing authors.  Abstracts for the special symposia are to be submitted to the symposium chair(s) by 20 January 2018.

Oral presentations receive maximum exposure: one session at a time - no parallel sessions. Oral presentations for regular sessions and special symposia will be allocated 30 minutes each including a 5-minute discussion. Posters will also be displayed at one session at a time that does not overlap with the oral session.
