Guidelines for Contributors

The Organising Committee invites you to submit an abstract for either an oral or poster presentation on a topic aligned with the Workshops themes.

Abstract submission

Abstracts must be submitted on-line.

Please read the ISHS online submission procedures before submitting your abstract:

If you have any queries regarding abstract submission or presentations, please send an email message via this link, with subject 'Presentation query'.

Abstract acceptance

Authors will be informed of their acceptance and method of presentation by 15 June 2020. The programme committee will try to accommodate your preferred method of presentation; however, as each format will form an integral part of the conference, the organising committee reserves the right to assign papers to either oral or poster presentation as necessary.

Oral presentations

Oral presentations will be limited to 15 minutes, plus 5 minutes per presentation for questions/discussion. We strongly encourage presenters to use electronic methods of presentation such as PowerPoint or Adobe Acrobat.

Poster presentations

There will be dedicated poster session(s) during the meeting. Each poster presenter will be asked to very briefly (<2min) summarise their poster, if necessary supported by a maximum of 2 slides maximum. Presenters will be asked to leave their posters on display for the duration of the conference.
