Abstract Submission 

If you would like to present work during the meeting, we ask that you please send in an abstract just as soon as possible after submitting the online registration form.

We will not typically confirm your participation in the meeting until we have received your abstract (or if you do not intend to present, your personal research summary).

 There is not, however, a strict abstract submission deadline.


Abstract Format 

We ask that you send a Microsoft Word (.doc) or searchable PDF file (.pdf) of one or two pages, in Letter or A4 format, as an email file attachment to or

If it’s more convenient (and wholly relevant to this meeting) for you, feel free to submit one of your recent short publications, again in Microsoft Word or PDF file format, even if it’s a little longer than two pages. 

Please be sure that the document you submit contains your full name, current affiliation and institution and email address on the first page.


It's More than just an 'Abstract' - Advertise Yourself! 

Mangosteen considers abstracts not as just an introduction to a short presentation, but more as an introduction to you, to your background and expertise, to the work your are doing now, and, most importantly for the objectives of this meeting, as an indicator to the type of professional relationships you are looking to build and collaborative efforts you are hoping to establish in the near future.  With this in mind, something along the lines of a personal summary or modified curriculum vitae might be more informative to the other participants than a traditional abstract or single research paper.       


Personal Research Summary 

You need only submit an abstract if you intend to give either an oral or poster presentation during the meeting.

If you intend to participate in the meeting, but do not want to present work then we ask that in place of an abstract you submit a short personal research summary (i.e. a paragraph or two on your background and research interests) as part of your registration for the meeting.

You will not typically be included amongst the list of confirmed participants until we have received either your abstract or personal research summary.

If submitting an abstract feel free to include details on your background and research interests to the abstract - this will serve to help other participants to get to know you and your specific interests all the more quickly.
