Function of the Abstract

The abstracts submitted by September 30, 2013 will not be published.

The function of the abstract is to provide the Conference Organizing Committee a clear understanding of the subject of the presented paper or poster. This will help in positioning the paper in the Conference schedule.

The final poster or manuscript must follow the general topic presented in the abstract, but there may be slight changes in the title and the authors. If the changes will significantly change the topic presented, the Organizing Committee should be notified before the manuscript is prepared.

Full details of poster and manuscript preparation and presentation will be available later.
