An abstract submission requirement has been put in place to assemble uniform abstracts and potentially include figures, assisting the blind peer review process in selecting a high caliber of science for the program. Your abstract will be treated confidentially and will not be published in either a proceedings or program. The abstract is for the sole purpose of reviewing your submission.

During abstract submission you will have to provide the following:

  1. Preferred Symposium Theme
  2. Preferred Session Topic(s)
  3. Preferred presentation type (Oral, Poster) + Consideration for Young Investigator Session (if age 35 or under)
  4. Title of the Work
  5. Introduction/Background/Aim of the Work (max. 100 words)
  6. Instrumentation/Methods (max. 100 words)
  7. Results & Discussion (max. 250 words)
  8. Conclusions (max. 100 words)
  9. Figure/table/photo with legend (optional)

An example of an abstract can be downloaded here: Abstract example. The word count is automatically included during submission.

Do not include author names, affiliation or references in the abstract - this is important to safeguard a double blind review.

An Abstract Registration ID Number will be automatically assigned when you submit your abstract.

If your abstract cannot be accepted as Oral presentation, it will be considered for Poster presentation.

Peer Review - Your abstract will be reviewed independently by two peers with expertise in the topic. The review will be blind to your name, institution or position status and will be based solely on the information that you provide in the abstract. Four criteria will be used to score each abstract:

  1. Originality of the work
  2. Abstract quality
  3. Fit with the symposium themes
  4. Significance to the field of microscale separations and bioanalysis

In order to present, the presenting author of each lecture or poster must be registered as a conference attendee and must complete the registration process by paying the required fee.
