Abstracts and Posters
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 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.
