  • All abstracts submitted for presentation must represent scientific research that cannot be perceived as marketing a specific company or product.
  • Authors submitting abstracts are responsible for ensuring that all authors listed on the abstract have been notified of the submission.
  • Each abstract will be reviewed by the Organizing Committee, and decisions to accept or reject abstracts rest with this committee.

Revisions and Withdrawals

Attendees who submit abstracts may make revisions to the content of their abstract or withdraw their abstract until 10 January 2019. Requests for withdrawals must be received in writing by the Organising Committee, biophysicsworkshop@nullsalamanderevents.com. Please include the presenting author’s full name and abstract title.

Notifications

The Organising Committee will email Presenting Authors only. It is important that a valid and current email address for the Presenting Author be entered during the abstract submission process. Once an abstract is received by the Organising Committee all subsequent notifications will be sent to the Presenting Author by email. Notifications will not be sent to the other authors. The Presenting Author holds the responsibility of notifying all authors on the abstract of the scheduling.

Poster Guidelines

  • Exact poster board size will be announced soon. Typeface should be large enough to be read comfortably by interested attendees from distances of 4-5 feet (1.5 m).
  • Mount graphs, micrographs, descriptive legends, etc. on stiff poster board so that they will remain in place when attached to display boards. A few large boards are better than many small ones, and will be easier to mount.
  • Illustrations should be made in advance of the meeting. Matte finish on micrographs and other photographic reproductions provides better visibility due to reduction of glare from lights.
  • Display a copy of your abstract. You may also tack several copies of your abstract to the poster board to give to viewers.
  • Authors are expected to bring their own pushpins, thumbtacks, presstick or velcro for mounting poster materials.

IUPAP Support for Free Circulation of Scientists / Policy on Harassment

The CCP4 2020 workshop supports the International Union of Pure and Applied Physicists (IUPAP) Policy on Free Circulation of Scientists and the IUPAP policy statement on harassment at conferences.

Free Circulation of Scientists: The principle of the Universality of Science is fundamental to scientific progress. This principle embodies freedom of movement, association, expression and communication for scientists, as well as equitable access to data, information and research materials. In pursuing its objectives with respect to the rights and responsibilities of scientists, the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) actively upholds this principle, and, in so doing, opposes any discrimination on the basis of such factors as ethnic origin, religion, citizenship, language, political stance, gender, or age. IUPAP should only sponsor conferences and events at institutions and in countries that uphold this principle. If scientists are excluded from attending IUPAP-sponsored international conferences by a host institution or country on the basis of any of these factors, IUPAP should register its concern at the highest level of that institution or country, and should not sponsor any future events in that country until such exclusions have been eliminated. [ Section 1. (http://iupap.org/sponsored-conferences/conference-policies/)]

Harrassment at Conferences: It is the policy of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) that all participants in Union, and Union-endorsed activities will enjoy an environment which encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas, and is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. The conference organisers will name an advisor who will consult with those who have suffered from harassment and who will suggest ways of redressing their problems, and an advisor who will counsel those accused of harassment. The conference organisers may, after due consideration, take such action they deem appropriate, including warning or expulsion from the conference without refund.
