Guidelines for Abstract Submission
Abstracts must be submitted online. The electronic version of the abstract will be published in the Abstract Book of the Symposium. E-mailed, postmailed, photo-copied or faxed abstracts will not be accepted as such. Please carefully read the guidelines before writing your abstract.
Before submitting his abstract, the author must register, following to make the payment no later than March 1st, 2009. The abstracts whose authors are not registered will not be taken into consideration.
Abstracts must be submitted in English (for both foreign and Romanian participants) and should contain no more than 350 words.
Use "Times New Roman 12 points" font and single line spacing in the whole abstract. The main text should be written in one paragraph, with scientific names in italics, with no reference cited.
Charts or graphs cannot be inserted within the abstract form.
The abstract title should fit in two lines and should be written only in upper case. Type the main author's family name and then initials of his/her first name(s), followed by the rest of the co-authors' names. Immediately follow the author names with the name of the institution, department, city and country. Underline the presenting author.
 
The content of the abstract should be informative and mention:
    1. the objective of the study;
    2. short description of the methods used, in case they are relevant;
    3. a brief description of the results;
    4. conclusions.
Bibliography should not be inserted in the abstract.
 
The abstracts that are not edited according to the previous instructions will not be accepted.
 
Once sending the abstract the author obliges to:
-  take responsability for the information presented;
-  confirm that all authors know and agree the content of the abstract;
-  approve the publishing of the abstract in the Symposium Abstract Book in case the paper is selected as oral or poster presentation.
 
 
Reviewing and acceptance of abstracts
The Symposium Scientific Committee will review the abstracts sent until the deadline and will announce the result no later than May 31st, 2009.  The decision concerning the presentation type (oral or poster presentations) belongs to the Symposium Scientific Committee.
 
All the lectures accepted for free paper or poster will be presented at the Symposium by the presenting author. In case the presenting author cannot attend the Symposium, he must announce in written the Symposium Secretariat at: registration@sefs6.ro, mentioning also the name of the substitute speaker.
 
Oral Presentations
Oral presentations should be planned for 15 minutes + 5 minutes scheduled for discussion. Since the number of oral presentations is limited due to the tight schedule, we may ask some authors to shift from oral to poster session. Preference for oral session shall be given to presentations  that are based on sound science, aimed at testing scientific novelty. We suggest that purely descriptive data are presented as posters rather than in oral sessions.
 
Poster Presentations
Posters' format: size of posters 90 cm. (width) x 120 cm. (height), sized panel including the frame. The organizers are providing panels for the posters presentations and adhesive.
