Present your research to a broad audience
Your abstract should be no more than 500 words and provided in *.doc or *.docx format. Abstracts will be included and provided to conference participants on a USB stick/online and/or conference book.
In order to assist with the review/editing of abstracts, please carefully observe the following formatting and style conventions:
Titles should be Arial Bold 14 point single spaced.
Author information should be set two lines below the title and in Arial 11 point. It should consist of three lines single spaced: your name, your department/school, your institution.
Indicate which author is presenting a poster, if applicable, by underscoring the author's name.
The body of the abstract should be set two lines below your author information.
Font should be Times New Roman 11 point.
Line spacing should be single with 1.5 spacing between paragraphs.
Text should be set left, non-justified, block paragraph/s (no indent).
Margins should be set at 2.54 cm on top, bottom and right, with a 3.5cm margin on the left.
There should be one space after the end punctuation of each sentence in the text.
Please use Nature Biotech style for references.
Place all titles of separately published works (print, film, televisual and so on) in italics.
Use double quotes throughout except for quotes inside quotes.
Avoid abbreviations such as “e.g.,” “i.e.,” “etc.”; that is, spell out the words.
Use the em-dash for dashes. The em-dash looks like this "—"; that is, a solid double hyphen between words with no space before or after.
Do not include footnotes in your abstract. Instead weave any references to authors/titles into the text of the abstract.
Send your abstracts via email to .de
