Abstract Submitted for Selection
Extended abstracts submitted for selection are of free format and must have at least two pages, clearly stating the purpose and including results and conclusions with supporting figures as appropriate.
After extended abstracts submitted have been selected, authors with papers accepted for presentation at the 20th Lisbon Symposium must send a full-manuscript to be included in the e-proceedings and we are reformulating the 1-page abstract concept to update this fast access to the core findings of each article to the digital age. More new on the new one-page abstract at a later stage. Both will be available to all participants through the upcoming Symposium App prior to the start of the event and later published at the Symposium’s website.
The Full manuscript must be prepared according to the templates provided below and uploaded in PDF format (respecting the page size in the template) at the website (an option soon available through the corresponding author's account). Templates of the Full Paper are available for
The instructions for upload will be included in the templates. But, in case you have trouble with our instructions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Oral presentations will be delivered using a computer projector. The preferred applications are Microsoft PowerPoint and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf files).
To minimize setup time, each presenter is requested to upload his presentation prior to the start of the session on the available conference computer system. We suggest bringing a copy of all the files including movies on multiple media formats (e.g. CD and/or USB key). Please make sure to use standard codecs for video to minimize risks of playing issues during presentation on the conference computer system.
Presentations will last for 18 minutes, including 3 minutes for questions and answers. Timing will be strictly enforced by the chairperson and presenters should make sure that they do not talk for more than the allocated slot.
It is understood that at least one author of each presentation is planning to attend the Symposium and to present the work. Each author should only make one presentation.
