2. Length. The text of the abstract should be maximally one page long. Data in the abstract should be presented schematically so as to fit within this single page. Bibliography and any tables or figures may be submitted on a second page.
3. Format. The abstract, with the title included, should be written in Times New Roman 12 point font, with 2.5 cm margins on all sides. Please limit the formatting to a minimum. We recommend using one of the two prepared tempates:

4. Acceptable file format. The abstract should be submitted as a PDF file. Please make sure that all fonts are embedded in the file. If your abstract is accepted, you will be asked to supply an editable Word or Open Office file for inclusion in a book of abstracts.
5. Submission. Please submit your abstract only through this link using the EasyChair system: Abstract submission page. You will be asked to create an account first (if you do not already have one). Please fill out the information required and enter your abstract in the “Abstract” field.
