Deadline for registration and abstract submission:
the 30th of June 2020.
Within maximum five working days since completing the on-line registration, each registered participant will receive an e-mail confirmation for the participation in the congress. In case you don’t receive the e-mail confirmation, please contact the congress organizing committee at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The organizing institution will publish a volume in English, which will include the abstracts of the papers selected by the scientific committee, as well as the Congress programme. This volume has its own ISSN.
Papers may be presented as oral communications or as posters and the participants are allowed to choose one of these variants. In case the oral communications are too numerous (in comparison with the available time), Scientific Committee and Organizing Committee has the right to propose some of these papers to be presented as posters. The authors of the respective papers will be announced in due time. Oral communications must be made using a PowerPoint-like software package. For each paper it will be allotted 10 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for questions and answers. The maximum size of the posters will correspond to the A0 portrait format (841 x 1189 mm). For the PowerPoint presentations as well as for poster presentations the English language is mandatory. Also, the oral presentations will be made only in English.
The participants interested in publishing in the journal Travaux du Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle „Grigore Antipa”, edited by the organizing institution, can send the papers to the editorial staff, following the instructions available on the journal’s web-site travaux.pensoft.net . The papers will be accepted for publication only after an international peer-review process.
