Abstracts will be judged on technical merit and should emphasize results and conclusions in addition to what is new about the work.
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by October 31, 2017.
Abstracts accepted for presentation require a PowerPoint submission prior to the conference in the prescribed format. Authors agree to abide by all rules and regulations regarding submission and PowerPoint presentation. Titles and abstracts selected for presentation are subject to editorial revision by the co-chairmen. Accepted abstracts will be published on the MPIF Web site and in the Conference Guide.
Presentation at the conference must be made by one speaker per presentation. All PowerPoint presentations will be made available to conference registrants. Commercialism in abstracts and technical presentations is discouraged. Authors will be provided 25–30 minutes total time for formal oral presentation and questions-and-answers. All presentations must be given in English.
Persons submitting abstracts for presentation do so with the full understanding that all costs associated with conference participation, including travel, hotel, and non-programmed-meal expenses are the responsibility of the individual participant/speaker and not the organizer. Reduced speaker registration rates will be available to all participating speakers. Special letters of invitation that can be used in applying for entrance visas will be provided upon written request to MPIF.
