The ICFMAT provides you with an excellent opportunity to present the results of your work to a wide, interested and experienced audience. The organizers therefore encourage you to submit abstracts of your research work for presentation as posters.
The posters will be on display either on Friday or Saturday according to their topics, and poster sessions will allow for ample opportunities to discuss your research results with other interested toxicologists. A small number of most promising abstracts will also be selected by the organizers to be presented in oral sessions.
Submissions for poster abstracts are done on-line and you should therefore carefully read the submission instructions before you start with the procedure of abstract submission.
For the text of your abstract you will first have to create a specific file on your computer in MS Word or a compatible text system. You can write your abstract text into this file with the following restrictions: Please use a common font, such as Times New Roman, with font size 12. Maximum acceptable length is 250 words, and no graphs, pictures or tables are allowed. Any (absolutely essential) references are to be given within the text, and not as a separate reference list. Submitters of non-English mother tongue are strongly advised to let the text be checked by a person with excellent mastering of the English language. You should then save this text on the harddisk of your computer.
When you consider the text of your abstract as final you may then proceed to the submission procedure. No modifications will be allowed in that after submission. For updating the same, the re-registration costs may apply.
Due to the size of the poster boards your poster may not exceed 100 cm in width and 140 cm in height (portrait format). Materials for mounting the posters will be available at the poster areas. Posters will be placed according to the numbering provided at acceptance and the respective numbering on the boards. Posters will have to be mounted between 08.00 and 08.30 in the morning and will have to be removed after 18.00 in the evening. During the poster viewing period (12.00 - 13.30) the presenting author and/or co-authors are asked to be present at the poster in order to be available for questions and discussions.
Posters should be divided into sections like a published paper. Font size on the final poster should be large enough to enable reading from a certain distance. It may also be advantageous to have a number of hard copies of the poster available for distribution.
