Guidelines for Submission of Abstracts to AHM 2010

Download these guidelines: ahm-format-guidelines.pdf

Information for Theme Submissions
Authors submitting extended abstracts to AHM 2010 themes will have the opportunity to present projects as 15 minute presentations (and will have five minutes to answer questions after their talk).  As there are a limited number of slots for presentations, all abstracts will be peer-reviewed.  It is expected that key papers from AHM 2010 will be published in a special edition of a high quality journal (to be announced).  No other proceedings will result from the conference.

Authors are being asked to submit extended abstracts rather than full papers. Your abstract should be no more than 3 pages (two pages of text and one page of supplementary material consisting of figures, tables).  Please use 10 pt font size, single spacing and A4 paper size.

You can select whether you want your abstract to be considered for inclusion in the journal or not. If accepted for inclusion you will need to produce a full paper which goes through a further refereeing process.

You can choose to submit you abstract for consideration only as a poster.

You can select whether you are submitting your abstract as part of a theme or as a 'general paper', and you will be able to choose a second theme option.

Information for Workshop Submissions
Authors submitting extended abstracts to AHM 2010 workshops will also have the opportunity to present their papers - please see individual workshop websites, listed on the call for abstracts page, for details on the form of these presentations. 

The same general guidelines apply to both theme and workshop submissions.  Authors are being asked to submit extended abstracts rather than full papers. Your abstract should be no more than 3 pages (two pages of text and one page of supplementary material consisting of figures, tables).  Please use 10 pt font size, single spacing and A4 paper size.

But please note that in the case of abstract submissions for workshops, you must include the title of the workshop that you are submitting to at the top of your abstract.

Style and Content Tips:
It is extremely important that your abstract provide an adequate taste of your project or research, which can be difficult to do in only 2-3 pages.  Since you have limited space, succinctness and good organisation/structure are crucial for the success of your abstract during the reviewing process.  As a guide, you can consider this general, and seemingly obvious, structure:  first provide an overview that summarises the key points to the project or research, then move to describing these in more detail and conclude by explaining the innovative nature of your work (how it advances the field, offers something new).

The Abstract Submission page is now online.
