Abstract Submission

Abstracts for plenary, invited and contributed presentations should be prepared in Latex and presented as described below. They will be published on the web site of the conference, which is freely accessible.

The deadline for submitting an abstract is the 1st of May 2017 8th of May 2017 (deadline extended!)

Presenting authors are asked to specify the title of their contribution when completing the online registration form. All contributed abstracts will first be considered for a poster presentation. Abstracts to be considered for a contributed talk must be identified as such on the online registration form/name. The selection of abstracts for contributed talks will be made by the EGAS International Board.

Please contact the local committee at egas49@durham.ac.uk if you are planning to submit several abstracts with the same presenting author or would have a query about submitting an abstract.

Abstract guidelines:

Abstracts for EGAS 49 are meant to be “extended abstracts” giving a concise description of the work and results presented at the conference, accessible to a general audience of scientists working in Atomic and Molecular Physics and highlighting what is novel and original. They are strictly limited to one A4 page in length. They may include figures, equations, tables and references as appropriate.

Abstracts should strictly follow the Latex template provided here, in regards to the size of margins, choice of fonts, and other details of presentation. The template makes use of new Latex commands for the correct formatting of the title, of the authorship details, of figure or table captions and of references. Please use these commands, so as to avoid discrepancies with the expected format. Abstracts will be published as submitted, and it is therefore important that they are prepared with care.

The presenting author(s) must be identified in the authorship details (their name(s) must be underlined, as per the template). A corresponding author and their e-mail address can also be identified in the authorship detail.

Abstracts should be sent to egas49@durham.ac.uk in the form of a PDF file (not a .tex file). The name of the file should be the last name of the presenting author (in the case of several presenting authors, the name of the first presenting author), followed by their initials or first name as per the authorship, followed by a number if this author presents more than one poster or talk. E.g., for the example abstract forming the template, the file name would be WannSam.pdf.

Please remember that abstracts must be received by the 1st of May 2017 8th of May 2017.

Your assistance in following these instructions is appreciated by the local committee.
