Participants are invited to submit an Abstract for a Free paper, Poster or Workshop, related to the general topics of the conference.

The language for both Abstracts and presentations is English. Please note that all presenters must register for the conference.

FREE SCIENTIFIC PAPERS should present scientific work and be no longer than 12 minutes plus 3 minutes for questions and comments. They will be grouped into sessions according to content. Abstracts for Free papers should contain the investigation's objective, method, results and conclusion.

WORKSHOPS will last 40 minutes or 25 minutes each plus 5 minutes for questions and comments. We encourage presenters to submit practical workshops. Please describe in the Abstract what the participants will see or hear, and in what way they will be involved.

POSTERS will be on display during the whole conference. In addition, there will be a dedicated session where discussions can take place between authors and conference participants. To encourage the quality of posters, the best poster will be awarded by the prestigeous Gunnar Rugheimer Prize.

The submitted poster Abstract, as well as the actual poster, should contain the investigation's objective, method, results and conclusion.
