(a) For the symposium as a whole, please provide a general description of the format and the topic of the proposed symposium and its significance (up to 500 words) and indicate to which congress section you submit the symposium (tick the appropriate box). After the abstract, please suggest a symposium chair and list the titles of the talks in the order they should appear at the congress. Please provide the symposium with an acronym, and write this acronym at the beginning of the title of the symposium (: ). The acronym will be used by the Programme Committee to keep the individual submissions in a proposal together during reviewing and when creating the congress programme.
(b) Each paper within a symposium is submitted with a 500-word abstract. Indicate to which congress section you submit the paper (tick the appropriate box). Please write the acronym of the symposium at the beginning of the title of the talk (: ). The acronym will be used by the Programme Committee to keep the individual submissions in a proposal together during reviewing and when creating the congress programme.
Note to symposia organisers: papers intended to be presented as parts of a symposium must be submitted by their respective authors. Organisers of symposia are supposed to contact all symposium speakers in advance and make sure that they submit their abstracts by the submission deadline of 15 December 2018. The symposium description is submitted by the symposium organiser by the same deadline. Please make sure that all parts of the submission are prepared for anonymous review and submitted to the same congress section (the same box is ticked in all of them).
Although the exact format of symposia is up to the symposium organizers, the allocated time for each symposium paper is 30 minutes. For instance, a symposium with 4 speakers is a 2 hour session (4 x 30 minutes). Note that if a symposium consists of more than 4 speakers, it might be split into two sessions due to coffee breaks in the programme.
Rules for multiple presentations
(a) Every corresponding author is allowed to submit only one individual or symposium paper as a ?speaker?. (Organising a symposium does not count as being a ?speaker?, despite the labelling in EasyChair.) (b) Authors are permitted to be listed as non-corresponding co-authors of additional papers. (c) The corresponding author of each paper as well as the organiser of a symposium must be registered as a participant at the Congress and present the paper in Prague.
All questions about submissions should be directed to the congress secretary, Mr. Martin Zach, at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
