We are glad to inform authors of abstracts accepted for poster presentation, that XVI OPTIMA Meeting will introduce e-posters.
E-poster is the electronic version (one .ppt slide) of the traditional, printed poster, except that it is viewable on screen. The entire process of creating, submitting, managing and presenting e-poster will be done electronically, without the need to print it out, transport it and then display it, avoiding the economic and environmental costs of printing conventional posters.
E-posters will be presented on special monitors at the conference venue.
Detailed instructions of the preparation and submission of the e-posters will be available at the XVI OPTIMA Meeting webpage (www.optima2019.eu).
Abstracts will be published in the Abstract Book. They will be printed as submitted (except for formatting), or but slightly edited.
Abstracts will only be accepted in electronic format and conditional upon prior payment of the registration fee. No abbreviation is allowed in the title. Addresses should be brief and not include academic titles. The text must be in English or French and is not to exceed 400 words. Longer abstracts will be shortened at the Organizers’ discretion, or when this is not possible, they will be returned. Abbreviations other than those internationally accepted should not be used. No references and footnote can be permitted.
Abstracts must be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for abstract submission is June 25, 2019. Abstracts submitted after this date will not be included in the Abstract book.
Upon request, a letter of acknowledgement / acceptance can be sent to the author’s e-mail address.
