Preliminary abstracts are used for program planning and will not be published. However, an accurate description of what you intend to submit enables the program committee to plan a proper and successful/enlightening program.
It should not exceed one standard page (A4) and must contain: title, authors name, affiliations, keywords and the main text containing short introduction, aim of the study, material and methods, the most important results and conclusions. Please, do not include tables and figures in preliminary abstract.
When submitting your abstract, please read the following instructions.
For the online system, abstracts must not exceed 3,500 characters including title, authors and addresses, and including spaces and punctuation. Please refer to the model for formatting the abstract.
Abstracts must contain a clear statement of the purpose of the work, the methods used, the results, and preliminary conclusions. Results must be presented in sufficient detail to support the conclusions drawn. Abstracts are solicited for empirical research, theoretical contributions, short reviews or papers describing the development and validation of methods. For empirical research, submitted abstracts must describe the study design and sample size, give precise information on the results obtained so far, briefly indicate the method(s) of analysis, and provide information about statistical analysis.
Authors are strongly encouraged to include numerical values for results (eg. means and measures of variability, correlation coefficients) where appropriate. Reviewers will be advised to reject abstracts that do not contain a clear statement of the actual results obtained, or which rely only on the expectation of future results, since it is very difficult to evaluate the suitability of these abstracts for presentation. However, during the actual presentation recent results that enhance the work presented are encouraged. Presentations should be of original research, which is substantially completed, but which has not yet been published as a full paper in a scientific journal.
Contributions that synthesize succinctly results of a laboratory’s recent research program in a specific area are highly encouraged. Please indicate oral or poster presentation for offerings that report important results of an experiment or test of a hypothesis or model. Please, also indicate your preferred session.
Abstracts must be written and presented in English. Linguistic accuracy is the responsibility of the authors.
All accepted papers will be included in the Symposium Proceedings published by Wageningen Academic Publishers. The proceedings will be distributed at the start of the Symposium.
Important Information: Finally, please note that all presenting authors who have not registered before the deadline (20 May 2016) will have their paper removed from the publication. For this reason it is important to carefully indicate who will be the presenting author.
