Authors are requested to submit their abstracts that will be reproduced in an Abstract Volume to be distributed to the participants. All abstracts should be prepared according to the guidelines given below.
The abstract should not exceed 1 page (500 words). The topic covered should be relevant to the sub-themes of the meeting. The name, address (telephone, fax and e-mail) of the communicating author must be clearly specified. The names of the co-authors should be written in capital letters to allow the distinction from the first names.
The abstracts should be laid out in accordance with the main formatting points listed below. A limited amount of re-formatting will be undertaken by the conference secretariat, but submissions that are grossly aberrant will be returned to authors for correction.
English, French and Arabic are the official languages for the conference.
Oral presentations should not exceed 10 minutes followed by 5 minutes discussion. The poster sessions will be scheduled within the program. More details will be given in the second circular.
