Abstract guidelines

Abstracts for EGAS 50 are meant to give a concise description of the work and results presented at the conference, accessible to a general audience of scientists working in Atomic and Molecular Physics and highlighting what is novel and original. They are strictly limited to one A4 page in length. They may include figures, equations, tables and references as appropriate.

Abstracts should strictly follow the templates provided here, in regards to the size of margins, choice of fonts, and other details of presentation. The LaTeX template makes use of new LaTeX commands for the correct formatting of the title, of the authorship details, of figure or table captions and of references. Please use these commands, so as to avoid discrepancies with the expected format. Abstracts will be published as submitted, and it is therefore important that they are prepared with care.

When preparing figures, please remember that the abstract book will be printed in grayscale.

The presenting author(s) must be identified in the authorship details (their name(s) must be underlined, as per the template). A corresponding author(s) and their e-mail address can also be identified in the authorship detail.

Please remember that abstracts must be received by the 1st of June 2018.

Your assistance in following these instructions is appreciated by the local committee.
