Oral presentations and posters
There will be several parallel sessions. Contributions are invited for sessions within themes A–F. Each presentation will be allocated 15 minutes (including time for discussion).
Posters should be closely related to the topics of the scientific sessions and should not exceed 120 cm (height) by 94 cm (width).
Please indicate your preference for your presentation (oral talk or poster) on the registration form; the final decision however, will be made by the organising committee based on advice from the convenors.
Abstracts with a maximum of 450 words must be submitted by June 15, 2007. Please send digital abstracts as Word documents (*.doc) or in Rich Text Format (*.rtf), attached to an email to or on CD-Rom to the conference address. Please, do not submit your abstract on paper and do not include figures. All abstracts will be published in Terra Nostra (ISSN coded). Your abstract will be processed on receipt of registration payment.
