Abstract submission guidelines

Abstracts submission now CLOSED!

Late contributors are asked to contact us by e-mail at secretariat-simsxviii at fbk.eu . We cannot assure the inclusion in the abstract selection process of late submissions, although we will do as much as possible in that direction.



Go to the web address for the abstract submission at the URL:


If you do not have already an account, choose “sign up for an account” and follow the procedure to obtain an account, using the e-mail you will have received as confirmation of the creation of the account. Define an user ID and a password to access to the system of submission of abstracts.

Once you are logged to the site, to submit an abstract choose “New Submission”

Complete the information related to every author of the paper, specifying at least one Corresponding Author. If the abstract has more than 3 authors, use the “Click here to add more authors” option.

Enter the Title and the Abstract in plain text in the reported form. This is only to help the system and the database, but the ABSTRACT MUST SUBMITTED AS .PDF OR .DOC format according to this template. Please notice that abstract length must be limited to one A4 page as indicated in the template.

Enter at least 3 keywords, one per line.

Select topics relevant to the abstract submission (one or more from the reported list).

UPLOAD THE FILE WITH YOUR ABSTRACT as either .doc or .pdf format

Submit your abstract clicking the “Submit” button.

Once you have submitted one or more papers, you can access to your submission(s) through either the “overview” or “my submissions” menu. You can edit or add corrections or upload a new version of your abstract(s) before the abstract deadline.
