Abstract guidelines and rules
- Abstracts should be short (400–500 words), clear, concise and written in English with correct spelling and good sentence structure.
- Mathematical symbols and equations can be typed in or embedded as images.
- You should not include more than six figures. The figure caption must be embedded in the image. Each figure must not exceed a max. resolution of 500 x 500 px and/or a max. file size of 1 MB.
- We recommend that the abstract is carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular with regard to the list of authors, before submission in order to avoid last minute changes.
- The submission of an abstract carries with it the obligation that it is actually presented at the meeting by the author or, at least, by one of the co-authors. If this is not possible, please withdraw your abstract as early as possible.
- By submitting an abstract, authors accept the licence & copyright agreement and the rules of conduct.
- Submission of the same abstract to more than one session is not allowed. Duplicates identified by the program committee will be rejected.
- The content of GSTM2020 abstracts is the responsibility of their authors. GSTM2020 reserves the right to reject abstracts that are not written in English, are out of the scope of the GSTM2020, do not meet basic standards of scientific quality, or do not adhere to conventional standards of civil discourse and common decency.
- The official language of the GSTM2020 is English. It is therefore expected that authors are able to present their research more or less fluently in the English language.
