Abstract Submission

All participants are invited to present their work in talks and poster presentations.


Authors will be informed about acceptance of talks/posters before 7 May 2018. A book of abstracts will be published. During abstract submission you can indicate your interest in publishing a full paper in Integrative Zoology.

Talks will be organised in 15-20 min slots (including discussion). Chairs will be advised to terminate presentations timely.

Please follow the guidelines by Charley Krebs.
Pins will be provided at the conference desk.

Full Papers
There will be a special issue of Integrative Zoology including selected contributions from the meeting. In the process of abstract submission you will be prompted to state whether you wish to submit a manuscript. If so, please read on.

Integrative Zoology is a high profile international scientific journal (impact factor 2016 2.07). The number of publications to be included in the special issue is limited. Therefore, the international steering committee will have to select authors among the participants that are interested in contributing to the special issue. All manuscripts will go through regular peer review.

If you plan to submit a manuscript, please note the schedule:

7 May – potential contributions selected by committee and authors informed
1 July – deadline for submission – no exceptions!
15 July – referees’ reports and decision of editor communicated to authors
15 July – deadline for revisions – no exceptions!

Instructions for authors and for the submission process are here.
