Abstract Format Information

Abstracts are to be submitted in English. Please be sure to carefully check your abstract for content errors, spelling, names, etc. before submitting. The organizers do not proofread to correct spelling, typographical, grammatical, or scientific errors.

As a guideline, the abstract text should not exceed a maximum of 3,000 characters (incl. spaces). Please submit text only. Double-check all your special characters. SI units should be used throughout (liter and molar are permitted, however). Abbreviations should be used as sparingly as possible. They should be defined when first used.
