Preparing your abstract for submission
Abstract submission is structured with the following body parts: Purpose - Methods - Results - Conclusion.
Abstracts are limited to 250 words for title, abstract body and image caption(s). Therefore, it is important to plan, review and edit your abstract submission for clarity and concision.

Author forenames/surnames should be explicit: to minimise ambiguity it is recommended that first initials and last (family) name are used. There is a need to be consistent as to whether it is last names first throughout, or initials first throughout.
