Abstract Language and Length

Abstracts and presentations must be written in English. The maximum length allowed for an abstract is 300 words. The abstract title, the author(s) or names of institutions are not included in the count of 300 words.


Abstract Structure and Content

In order to make the abstract as informative as possible, please include a brief statement of the purpose of the study and/or the underlying hypotheses, the method used, the results observed, and the conclusions based upon the results. It is inadequate to state “The results will be discussed” or “The data will be presented”. You may subtitle the paragraphs in the following order:

  • Background
  • Method
  • Results
  • Conclusion(s)

It is the author’s responsibility to submit a correct abstract. Any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author as no editing will be done by ILTS.

Encore abstracts (abstracts previously presented at another conference or previously published in a journal) will not be considered.


Presentation Formats and Abstract Categories

Authors can indicate their choice of preferred type of presentation in the provided space. In addition, authors should indicate the thematic area (see “Abstract Categories”) their abstract should be assigned to. Please note that the final decisions regarding the allocation and the type of presentation of the submitted abstract will be made by the Program Committee.


Notification of Acceptance

The corresponding author receives all correspondence concerning the abstract and is responsible for informing all co-authors of the status of the abstract.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent in the second half of February.

With the notification of acceptance, abstract presenters will be informed about the time and date of their presentation, and are asked to reconfirm their attendance.
