VII International Baekeland Symposium

Abstract Submission and Guidelines

General Guidelines

All participants are invited to register to the web site in order to submit an abstract for oral or poster presentations. Submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed for their acceptance by the Organising/Scientific Committee. In case of non-acceptance of an oral communication due to limited slots available, presenters will be invited to present their research as a poster.

Please, note that your registration is required to access abstract submission, but payment is not mandatory at this stage. Accepted summaries will however only be published in the book of abstracts of the symposium, after full payment of the registration fee.
