General considerations

When writing your abstract and preparing your presentation, please keep in mind that you will present to listeners who come from many different disciplines and might not be aware of the conventions within your own field of research. Therefore, a concise and clear abstract is required. The abstract should briefly state the purpose of the research, methods adopted, the principal results and major conclusions. Non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract. The maximum length of the abstract is limited to 300 words.

We advise you to prepare the abstract as a Word or other text document first. Make all corrections and agreements together with your supervisor. Once you have completed this step, you can then copy and paste the text into the online portal. Use the word count function in order to make sure that your text is not too long since you will not be able to submit if your text exceeds 300 words.

The online form works best with Firefox or Chrome. Please do not use Internet Explorer (you might not be able to submit your abstract)! 

For all of your writing, please use British spelling. For a quick reference on the differences between British and American spelling, please see this article from the Oxford Dictionary.
