Preparing your Abstract

The name, address and email of the corresponding author should also be given. The format of the abstract must be in an editable form, preferably word, plain text or LaTeX. The submissions will be manipulated for use in the abstract booklet after approval by the programme committee. The abstract should be limited to 150 words. The body of the text should be single spaced and contain a concise summary of the work to be presented. Please state if you would prefer oral or poster presentation. The programme committee will endeavour to meet your requirement but space and programmatic constraints may mean that this is not possible.

The abstract should be emailed to no later than 3rd April 2018. You will receive notification of acceptance/rejection after it has been reviewed by the programme committee.

IOP do not copy edit or reformat papers and will not send out author proofs prior to publication.
