Definite acceptance and inclusion in the final program requires one of each
abstract's authors to register as presenting author.
Potential talks or posters for which no author has registered by April 6, 2009
will be excluded from the final program!
How to submit an abstract?
All abstracts must be received through this web page.
Abstracts are expected to be between 500 and 1,000 words with one optional
figure and up to eight authors.
You first need to sign up for abstract submission with your email. A special
link is then sent to you, which allows you to access the submission page as
well as the ability to edit a previously made submission (however, access is
granted only until the submission deadline).
Detailed instructions are also available for download.
Information for Podium Presenters
As a general rule of CAOS, no author must present more than one talk.
If your group will have more than one abstract accepted for podium presentation
each one has to be presented by a different author.
Each speaker must register as a presenting author (see above).
Your presentation time will be limited to 6 minutes. The chairpersons of
each session will be instructed to strictly enforce this time limited due
to a tight schedule.
You should prepare your presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint XP, 2003, or 2007.
All presentations will be run off a central PC. Therefore, you
should submit your talk at least 3 hours prior to the beginning of
your session. To do so, store it on a CD-ROM or USB Memory-Stick and
contact the "slide preview" counter. If your presentation includes
a video clip, make sure to also store the associated file.
All stored presentations will be deleted from the central PC after the meeting.
The official language of the meeting is English.
Information for Poster Presenters
Each poster presenter must register as a presenting author (see above).
Posters shall be max. 84 cm wide and 119 cm high (European format A0)
or max. 36" wide and 48" high (US format). Posters must be portrait.
Posters will be presented in two poster sessions
Each poster should remain installed at the assigned poster booth during
the entire time of the meeting
Authors are expected to be at their posters during that session to which
the poster has been assigned
