Guidelines for Abstract Submission
Enter the title of the abstract using initial capital letters. For example: “This is a Paper Title in Initial Capital Letters”
The default for all contributions which are not invited oral presentations is "Poster". EPAC's Organizing Committee will select contributions for contributed oral presentation at its meeting in February 2008.
Main and Sub-Classification of Abstracts
All contributions are grouped by Main and Sub-Classification. Authors are reminded that it is their responsibility to properly classify their abstracts to ensure that, if accepted for presentation, the paper is properly placed within the conference program. A description of the Scope of Classifications and Sub-Classifications is provided to help authors with this task.
Text should not exceed 1200 characters.
Since electronic submission over the web does not allow a simple, straight-forward system to enter Greek symbols, superscripts or subscripts. Authors are requested to avoid using them.
Footnotes should not exceed 200 characters. Enter references to publications as many times as necessary and with a carriage return between each.
Reference to funding agencies should not exceed 200 characters. This field should not be used to request sponsorship at the conference. No carriage returns are allowed. Once the abstract submission is complete, hit "Submit".
Abstract Editing/Entry of Co-authors
After having "submitted" the abstract, a new window allows authors to print, edit, withdraw, and also to enter co-authors and designate their roles: primary/submitting authors (the persons normally contacted on matters concerning the programme and the conference organization), presenter/speaker (the person who would present the invited oral/contributed oral/poster), co-author.
If a paper is selected for oral presentation, the role “presenter” automatically becomes “speaker”. The roles thus assigned are used to generate the sort order for co-authors in the table of contents. The names of primary/submitting authors appear first in the list of co-authors, followed in alphabetical order by co-authors with the same affiliation. Co-authors from other affiliations are grouped by affiliation, in alphabetical order.
It is important to remember to enter all co-authors. Failure to do so means they will be excluded from the author index in the conference programme booklet and in the proceedings.
Notification of the acceptance of contributions for presentation at the Conference will be made to all primary/submitting authors early in March 2008.
