Writing an abstract
Writing an Abstract
The CIRED 2013 Abstract submission system is now active. Abstracts must be submitted by Thursday, 13 September 2012 if they are to be considered for the conference. Use of the CIRED 2013 template is mandatory, and only Abstracts following the instructions provided below will be considered.
Before submission, make sure that the following material is ready:
- Title, authors’ names, affiliation and a 35 word (approx) biography. If your title and abstract contains no special characters, and no sub or sup scripts, the text can be copied and pasted from your Word document or typed in directly
- Your abstract of no more than two A4 page, including title, names, affiliation and abstract in word format (file size maximum 500 KB - Kilobyte)
- Preferred topic area (the Technical Programme Committee reserves the right to change the authors' choice of topic area)
Once you have the material listed above ready you can proceed with the submission system.
The submission system for abstracts will be open until Thursday, 13 September 2012. If you have difficulties in submitting your abstract, please try to shorten its file-name.
- The working language of the conference is English, which will be used for all printed material, presentations and discussion.
- The abstract template is a Microsoft Word file. Please save this template file to your PC’s hard drive and use it when you prepare your abstract.
- If you are submitting more than one abstract you can use the same email address and password for each abstract.
- Abstracts are required for all papers and posters. Abstracts MUST be submitted using the template form provided.
- Each abstract must fit within the abstract template and use the Arial font, size 10.
- Length - Up to a maximum of two A4 page (you may include diagrams).
- Special Characters - When inserting special characters in text use the ‘Insert Symbol’ function (avoid code-numbers for the symbols).
On submission of your abstract the corresponding author will receive a confirmation of the receipt of the abstract.
Processing and publication of personal data
The personal information we receive from delegates will also be required after the conference. This is in order to render an account of the conclusions arrived at during the conference, for statistical purposes, and for the dispatch of information on relevant conferences in the future.
Personal data will be stored by the Institution of Engineering and Technology for future mailings and information on forthcoming CIRED conferences. Personal data may also, in certain cases, be released to other companies participating in the conference for the distribution of information and offers directly from them.
