Abstract Instructions
Printer friendly version Printer friendly version

AQUA 2018 encourages the submission of high quality oral and poster presentations. We strongly encourage authors to consider poster presentations because poster sessions will be an integral part of the program. Papers submitted for "oral presentation only" may not be accepted as oral presentations due to the limited number of available time slots. All abstracts must be in English - the official language of the conference.

Each oral presenter shall be entitled to no more than 20 minutes comprised of 15 minutes for a presentation, plus 5 minutes for questions. Authors of studies involving proprietary products or formulations should present this information in workshops or the trade show. Oral presentations should use Power Point. Overhead projectors, slides and video players will not be available or allowed.

All presenters are required to pay their own registration accommodation and travel expenses. AQUA 2018 cannot subsidize registration fees, travel or hotel costs.

No Abstract Book will be printed - a USB will be given to registered attendees.
