Abstract and Poster Guidelines


We encourage all participants to consider presenting a paper at the meeting. Please make your abstracts as complete as possible, including a full description of the results, while adhering to the 500 total word limit. Unacceptable abstracts will be returned to the authors, who will be asked to submit a revised abstract. The deadline for abstract submission is Friday 10 November 2017.  Abstract acceptance is subject to committee decision.

Please indicate whether you would prefer to give an oral presentation or poster presentation. Note, your preference will be taken into account however final decisions will be made by the CONNECT committee. You will be advised of the committee’s decision in mid-November 2017.
