INDICATION OF INTEREST IN THE CONGRESS

If you only wish to be informed on Congress news or if you later wish to submit a paper please fill in the Congress Application Form. You will receive a personal password, which will give you an access to your personal user pages.

FORMS OF PAPER PRESENTATIONS

Contributions will be presented as keynote lectures, lectures, or posters. As lectures, preferably papers with a wider scope or importance should be submitted. Authors should indicate the preferred form of presentation but the Congress Advisory Board reserves the right to make the final decision. The Congress language is English.

PAPER SUBMISSION

Application for presentation of a paper must be submitted only with use of the Congress Application Form. Every application must be accompanied by max. 2 pages long summary in English (observe kindly instructions for its preparation below) uploaded with the interactive application form. Application form without summary will not be considered. The summary should be comprehensive and suitable for reviewing by members of the Congress Advisory Board. The deadline for the submission of application for oral presentation is 30 November 2019. Later applications for oral presentation will be considered exceptionally. Posters may be accepted up to the beginning of the Congress, however only contributions received before 31 May 2020 will be included in the final program.

Important note: One oral and two poster presentations are only allowed for one registered (and paid) participant due to time and space limitations.

Every author will receive an e-mail message confirming the receipt of the application. Notification about the final acceptance of CHISA contributions will be sent in March 2020.

SUBMITTED PAPERS

All submitted contributions will be displayed on the CHISA website (please allow some time since this is processed manually), and those who have passed a formal check will be marked. In any case, it will be possible for the corresponding author to modify her/his summary based on the personal login password. Accepted papers will be listed by 15 March 2020.

At least one of the authors must register as a participant and settle her/his registration fee before 30 April 2020 otherwise the paper will not be included in the program. Author may update the original summary at any time via her/his user page before 31 May 2020. It is assumed that the original title of the contribution will not be considerably modified.

HOW TO PREPARE THE SUMMARY

The summary must be prepared with any version of the MS-Word editor (as *.docx or *.doc) on maximum two pages of A4 size (297x210 mm) with all margins equal to 25 mm. The single spaced text should be typed in Times New Roman font. Please, start at the top of page with the title of your contribution (non-capitalised, left aligned, bold, size 14 pts.); for a title, maximum of 150 characters including spaces is allowed. Skip two lines below title and type the author’s name(s) in the following order: initial(s), surname (font size 12 pt., left aligned). Underline the name of the author delivering the paper. On the next line, enter the affiliations of authors with full postal address; telephone, fax, and e-mail connections are desirable (12 pt., left aligned).

Then, skip two lines and begin your summary text: single-spaced, justified, non-bold, 12 pts., Times New Roman. You can locate any text, equations, figures, references, etc. within the area available.

An example of summary is available in MS-Word template.

Please follow all the instructions very carefully to achieve the formal appearance of a summary as closely as possible to this template. Regrettably, most of preliminary summaries usually do not comply with these instructions. Therefore, they must be formally re-edited by the Scientific Committee, which does not bear responsibility for possible changes ensuing from such reformatting. Every author is responsible for the quality and content of her/his summary. The summary not meeting the above requirements will not be accepted and the author will be notified.
