The guidelines for the preparation of abstracts are the same for everyone. The guidelines shown below are also available through the abstract submission form. Abstracts are submitted exclusively through this website, through your personal myDNM area.
The title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc). Example:
This title is written correctly
This Title is Not Properly Written
ALSO THIS TITLE IS WRONG
If more than one author, underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the names; do not use 'and' before the last author. Write first name(s) as initials and surname in full. If more than one affiliation, use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution. Example:
M. Rossi1, J. Doe2, F.C. Bloggs1,2
1Dept Biomembranes, Golgi & Veratti Univ., Pavia, Italy
2Dept Bioblast Analyses, Altmann Univ., Leipzig, Germany
Keep the abstract text to within 2000 characters, spaces included (this is roughly equivalent to 250 words).
All speakers should submit an abstract for their presentation. All other participants are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract for a poster presentation.
If your abstract is selected for a poster presentation, when preparing your poster please remember that the area available to you is 90 x 110 cm (width x height).
"Portrait" is fine "Landscape" not...
Your poster should be readable from a 2-metre distance; as a rough guideline, use a font size of 72 pts for your title, and a minimum of 28 pts for your text.
Posters must be mounted on the day of the presentation between 08:00 and the start of the first session of the day (9:50 on Thursday, and 09:00 on Friday). Posters should only be removed at the end of the day and before 08:00 of the following day (or by 16:00 on Friday, 12 June).
