How to prepare an abstract?
Abstract submission is associated with registration through the CBGA webpage. Please, prepare first the abstract in a text program (like Word). The abstract body should be short (maximum 500 words), clear, concise, and written in English with correct spelling and good sentence structure. Figures and tables cannot be included. Before submission, abstracts should be carefully compiled and thoroughly checked, in particular with regard to the list and sequence of authors and of their full addresses in order to avoid any last minute change.
The submission of an abstract includes the obligation that the contribution will actually presented at the meeting by the author of submission. Abstracts without registration of at least one of the authors are going to be not accepted. By submitting an abstract, authors accept the publication in the abstract volume of the CBGA 2018 Conference Abstract volume. Submission of the same abstract to more than one session is not allowed. The content of submitted abstracts is the responsibility of their authors. CBGA reserves the right to reject abstracts that are not written in English, do not meet basic standards of scientific quality, or do not adhere to conventional standards of civil discourse and common decency.
First-author oral preference rule: Regarding the oral preference, each participant is allowed, as a first registered author, to submit either one regular abstract and one further abstract for a poster presentation. In the case, that one abstract is invited by a convenor as a solicited oral presentation, a further abstract for an oral presentation is allowed. In this case, a further abstract can be submitted with a poster preference. Note that in a session can be only one solicited abstract per eight oral presentations and only maximum ca. half of all submitted abstracts of a session can be oral presentations.
