Abstract Submission

Abstract submission guidelines

CMReJournal Online

  • All abstracts will be peer-reviewed and should not have been published elsewhere in a peer-reviewed journal.
  • Authors will be notified of the abstract acceptance/rejection no later than April 21, 2015.
  • All abstracts must be submitted and presented in English with a quality of spelling and grammar suitable for publication. If English is not your native language, please ask a qualified colleague, a university scientific publications office (or other similar facility) or a copy editor to review your abstract prior to submission.
  • Applicants should indicate the format they would prefer to present their abstracts:
  1. Oral: Oral presentations will be 10 minutes with 5 minutes for questions. Spaces are limited. Those who are not successful in securing an oral presentation will be offered to present their abstract in a poster format.
  2. Poster: A traditional paper poster. Presenters will be asked to be available to answer questions during a dedicated poster viewing time.
  • There is no limit to the number of abstracts an author may submit, however, an author may only appear as presenting author on two (2) abstract submissions. The presenting author must attend the congress and be available to give the oral presentation or to present the poster.
  • Only abstracts of presenting authors who have paid their early bird registration fee by May 10, 2015 will be scheduled for presentation and published on line in the CMReJournal.
  • Each abstract should be a maximum of 350 words (excluding title and authors) and should consist of four (4) sections:
  1. Objectives
  2. Methods
  3. Results
  4. Conclusions
  • Word count is affected when tables or figures are added. An abstract can have a maximum of two (2) tables and figures. Each table and figure counts for 75 words. Figures and tables must be in .jpg, .gif, .doc or .pdf format.
  • Abstract title is limited to 20 words and should be in upper case.
