Electronic Poster Abstract Submission Guidelines
Abstracts are invited for electronic poster presentation for DAS SMACC 2017. All accepted electronic posters will be displayed online as part of the SMACC Media FOAM release during and following the conference, ensuring that they reach the maximum possible audience. Please see the ‘past talks’ tab on the SMACC website to review previous posters.
Closing date: Wednesday, 18 January 2017
Successful poster submissions will be guaranteed one delegate registration per poster at the standard charge (this is particularly important to ensure that poster authors can obtain registration as tickets will very likely sell out).
