Call for Abstracts

  • Opening day
  • Submission deadline

Submission of your abstract implies that you are willing to present the work as a poster or as a talk. Please indicate your preferred presentation type on the submission form. The convenors will review the abstracts after the submission deadline and, subject to space available, schedule the talks and posters.

Please note that before you can submit an abstract you must have created an account on this Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) Indico instance, using the Login tab at the top of this page. After submitting the form you will receive a confirmation e-mail that includes a link which you must use to activate your account.

NOTE: All Indico instances worldwide are discrete, with their own sets of accounts, and therefore you must create an account on this LBNL site in order to be able to submit an abstract.

When creating your account, please pay particular attention to entering your Family and First names in the correct fields. Use correct capitalization for your names and affiliation. Ensure that you have entered your e-mail address correctly.

Please read the following instructions carefully before submitting your abstract.
  1. All fields on the Submit Abstract form denoted by a red * are mandatory.
  2. To prevent submission failure, limit your abstract text to under 1,500 characters rather than the 1,520 character limit indicated.
  3. Use the optional Collaboration name field if required.
    Please use the format: ABC Collaboration.
  4. Use the optional Funding source field if you are obliged to do so.
  5. Use the Presentation type pull-down to indicate whether your abstract should be considered for Oral or Poster presentation.
    If you do not indicate the presentation type, it will be considered to be a Poster.
  6. If this abstract is for a Plenary Talk that you have been asked to present, please indicate the fact in the Comments field at the foot of the form.
  7. Under Track classification select the most appropriate of the twelve topics (tracks) listed below.
  8. Use the Submit Abstract link to the left to begin entering your abstract.
