Abstracts must be submitted according to these instructions before April 17, 2015. Abstracts received after the deadline will be declined if the program is filled. In addition, the Scientific Program Committee reserves the right to request that some contributed oral paper submissions be presented as posters.  Make sure that your abstract text is no longer that 250 words, not counting abstract title, names, and affiliations.

The organizing committee will handle several hundred abstracts so we ask that you name your abstract file according to the instructions below.


Naming your abstract file (use Microsoft Word)


1) choose the two-letter code that assigns your presentation to the appropriate topic. Be aware that papers may be moved to another session covering a similar topic, or to a poster session if submitted as an oral presentation.  Either of these will only be done if absolutely necessary, and at the discretion of the Scientific Program Committee






Beneficial Invertebrates






Microbial Control






2) -O for “Oral” and -P for “Poster”

3) dash (-)

4) your last name

5) abstract number (if you are submitting a paper and a poster)


Example: If you (Dr/Mr/Ms. Jones) are submitting two abstracts for  the Bacteria sessions (BA), one for an Oral presentation and another one as a Poster, you should name them:

BA-O-Jones1.doc and BA-P-Jones2.doc


If you are submitting one abstract for a Bacteria session (BA) and another one for the Microbial Control session (MC), both as Posters, your files would be:

BA-P-Jones1.doc and MC-PJones2.doc


6) If you want your work to be considered as a student presentation (competition for best student presentation), please indicate this by adding -STU at the end of the file name you are sending:
