Participants who wish to give a presentation (oral or poster) must submit an Abstract in the style, layout and format and in accordance with guidelines outlined in the Congress website. We recommend that the actual text of the abstract is carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular with regard to the list of authors, before submission in order to avoid last minute changes. Abstracts must be associated to a Session of the Scientific Programme, and the submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the Congress by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors.
Abstracts are to be submitted electronically using ‘online submission link’ at our website and we do not accept abstracts in hard copy or cameraready version. For further details please visit our website.
All abstracts must arrive before December 15, 2017. Each participant may submit up to two abstracts in which they appear as presenting author. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to accept or refuse contributions on the basis of the abstracts. Participants are invited to submit their papers to any of the sessions they wish. The authors may choose either oral or poster form for presentation of their paper, but please indicate your preference for presentation. The Scientific Committee will take the author’s preference for oral or poster session into full consideration, but the final decision will be made by the Committee. Submission of an abstract means the work is original and has not been submitted elsewhere. All abstracts will be compiled and published in an Abstract Volume. Participants will receive the Volume upon registration at the Convention Centre.
Authors whose abstract has been received and successfully processes will receive and acknowledgement regarding the receipt and status of their contribution as well as its Abstract Identification Number for future updating/correction or withdrawal, respectively.
Abstracts should be short, clear, concise and written both in Turkish and English with correct spelling and good sentence structure. For non- Turkish participants Organizing Committee will provide a help to translate abstracts to Turkish. Mathematical symbols and equations must be typed in, and metric symbols should be used. Standard abbreviations may be used. Each abstract should include title, author(s), institution(s), country, postal code and e-mail of the corresponding author. Please use the following example (given in ‘Abstract Layout’ section) when you prepare your abstract.
