Abstract:

This template is being provided to standardise abstracts for submission to the conference. It should not include subheadings, tables, figures or references and should be written as one paragraph. Spelling and grammar should conform to standard British-English. Keep the submission to 150 words maximum excluding Title and Presenters. Abstracts submitted in this format will help the reviewers and publishers to standardise the format for all abstracts and make the finished product more readable for attendees. The use of such a format is strongly encouraged.       

Biographies:

Write a brief biography to introduce yourself, highlight achievements, list credentials and any notable projects with which you are involved. Bios should be short and concise, listing only relevant information. Avoid listing personal statistics, such as family and hobbies; instead angle the bio to the intended audience.
