Submission is by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org stating your preferred symposia.
Abstracts should be a single sheet of A4 suitable for black and white printing. PDFs or Word documents are acceptable. Please ensure you include authors, affiliations and corresponding author email. The abstract deadline is 13th April 2018 with notification of presenters by 7th May 2018.
A: Physics in Semiconductors
B: Optical Devices
C: Electronic Devices
D: Semiconductor Materials and Nanostructures
E: Mid-IR and THz
F: Organics, Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Semiconductors & Perovskites
G: Wide Bandgap Semiconductors (including III-Nitrides)
H: 2D materials
If your abstract has been selected for a talk, the standard duration is 15 minutes so you should prepare a talk of around 12 minutes duration with 3 minutes for questions. Your presentation should be in PowerPoint or pdf format and should be uploaded to the lecture theatre computer via USB stick before the start of your talk session. The email confirming selection of your abstract for a talk will also include which day of the conference your talk will be scheduled.
If your abstract has been selected for a poster, posters should be a maximum size of A0 portrait in order to fit on the poster boards. Please print your poster prior to arriving at the conference as we cannot guarantee that local printing services will be able to print it in time. Poster sessions are on the lunchtime of day 1 or day 2, depending on the symposium – the day of your presentation will be included in the email confirming selection of your abstract for a poster. The poster boards will be available from the morning of your poster session; if you have a poster on day 1 please take it down by the end of the day so the boards can be made ready for day 2.
We will send you an email confirming receipt of your abstract as soon as possible once we have received it and allocated it to a symposium – please allow up to 48 hours, especially at busy periods for example near the abstract deadline. Once the abstract deadline has passed the programme committee will put together the programme and we will send out emails confirming selection of your presentation for talks or poster presentations in early May.
Please indicate in your covering email if you have a preferred symposium, but the Programme Co-ordinator will check each abstract anyway and make sure it is submitted to the most relevant symposium and has the best chance to be selected for your preferred presentation type. The symposium to which the abstract has been submitted will be included in the email reply you will receive confirming receipt of your abstract.
