Criteria for abstract acceptance

The ECOSS Program Committee will meet to review abstracts. Abstracts must meet the following criteria:

1.The results presented in each abstract should add something new to our base of knowledge. The novel aspect of your work is an important consideration during abstract review.

2. The abstract should include sufficient results to properly represent the experiments that will be presented.

3. There must be a fundamental difference between each of the abstracts submitted from a research group. The same results may not appear in multiple presentations.

4. Each attendee can be the presenting author of up to two abstracts (although an individual may be listed as a co-author on multiple abstracts).
