We strongly encourage all authors to submit an extended abstract for the conference. This extended abstract will form part of the digital conference proceedings and will also be available from the interactive conference program.

Please submit your completed Extended Abstract before August 2nd, 2024.

Extended Abstract Templates

A template for the extended abstract has been provided and should be used for all submissions for the conference. Authors must use the provided abstract template without modification of the style.

Requirements for Extended Abstracts

The following requirements should be adhered to:

  • There is a 2-page limit for the extended abstract.
  • Do not change fonts, font sizes, margins, etc.
  • Manuscripts should not include any page numbers.
  • Headers or footers should not be modified.
  • All figures should be clearly legible and captioned, with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for any images included.
  • References should be in the numbered format as shown in the template.

Any non-standard formatting will result in the abstract being returned to the author for re-formatting.
