All participants are invited to contribute a presentation in the scientific sessions. Most contributions will be made during the Poster Sessions. However the Scientific Advisory Committee, along with the Local Organizing Committee, will select a number of abstracts from the contributed papers to be presented as 20-minute Oral Communications. Participants delivering their communications orally are advised to also present their data in poster form. The presenting author must be a registered participant.
ABSTRACTSAbstracts of all presentations i.e. Plenary Lectures, Invited Lectures, Oral Communications and Posters, will be printed in the Abstract Book of the 20th International Carbohydrate Symposium. Abstracts may include tables, schemes, figures and references within the allotted space.
Abstracts will be considered for the program when accompanied by the complete Registration Form A. All abstracts must be prepared using the Abstract Submission Form E (for a Sample Abstract see below). Only one abstract per registrant can be accepted, however, a registrant can be co-author on other registrants´ presentations. Deadline for abstract submission is May 15, 2000.
The authors accept full responsibility for the content of their contribution. Each abstract should be headed by a short and specific title, state the objective of the study, and contain a brief information of methods, a summary of results achieved and a statement of conclusions.
To keep abstracts consistent, the following style should be followed (compare sample).
- 11 point boldface fonts for the abstract title.
- 9 point normal fonts for authors' names, underline presenting author and distinguish affiliation by superscript numbers if necessary.
- 9 point italic fonts for affiliations.
- Times New Roman font if possible.
- leave one blank line between address and the beginning of the abstract.
The complete abstract area is 16.6 cm wide and 11.0 cm high as prepared in the Abstract Submission Form E.
Sample Abstract: (not formatted to scale!!!)
Provide the abstract by e-mail as RTF file to:
ICS 2000 Symposium Secretariat
Universität Hamburg, Institut für Organische Chemie
20146 Hamburg, Germany
The label of the disk should show the name of the author, the number of files, the program it was written with and the format of the diskette (PC or Mac). Please enter up to three key words on the Abstract Submission Form which will be used to construct the index of the printed Abstract Book.
Each lecture hall will be equipped with a slide projector (50 x 50 mm slides), an overhead projector, a pointer and equipment for voice amplification. Please mark each slide with a small coloured label so that when oriented correctly in the projector carousel, the label will be on the top right-hand side of the slide frame on the side away from the screen. Slides should be prepared preferably in landscape orientation. A slide preview facility will be available.
In addition, each lecture hall will have facilities for electronic presentation using MS Power Point 97. Please write the presenting author's name along with the time of presentation on your diskette or zip disk and deposit it at the slide preview facility on your arrival. Alternatively you may wish to bring your own laptop computer. If so, please contact the staff at the slide preview facility upon arrival.
POSTER PRESENTATIONPosters will be allocated a space of 1.2 m high and 1.0 m wide. All posters should be headed with the title as well as the names and addresses of the authors as submitted in the abstract and contain a clear survey of the research data. Suitable materials for attaching the posters will be supplied. Scheduling of posters will be announced in the Final Program.
