Abstracts for Oral presentations are welcomed in the 18  Micro-symposia listed under the Program page.   Outside these topics preference for an Oral presentation can be  indicated (you may list as MS-19) but cannot be guaranteed.  Poster presentations on any aspect relating  to the Crystallographic sciences are welcomed.

Unless specifically mentioned by the authors, it will be assumed  that submissions that cannot be accepted for Oral presentation because of time  constraints will be automatically considered as a Poster presentation.  It is hoped that the program of Oral  presentations will be finalized and confirmation sent to contributed speakers  by late September.

For Abstract submission please download the Abstract template.  Please edit this MS word file and follow the  formatting instructions detailed inside it. Please strictly observe the format  instructions otherwise the Abstract may be returned to you for re-editing;  figures are allowed, but please limit them to 1MB maximum file size.  The abstracts will be collected and  distributed to conference delegates on a thumb-drive at the conference; only  those with at least one registered author will be included.

The abstract template also contains various fields on an information  page please fill out as completely as possible:

  • • Presenting and Corresponding  Authors;
  • • Institution/Unit;
  • • Type of Presentation;
  • • Young Scientist/ Rising Star  support;

Please upload your edited Abstract-template via the Online Registration System.

For your benefit an on-line Registration system is being set-up and should be ready in early August. You may carry out your Registration and Abstract submission once this is available.

If you wish to edit/replace your abstract,  please do so through the Registration System before 15 September 2013.
