Call for Symposiums
These are typically thematically-bundled assemblies of up to 4 presentations, with 90-120 minutes of allocated time. Symposiums should be proposed by a symposia organiser, whose submission should contain a symposium title and symposium synopsis. The additional speakers will then receive a link from the panel organiser to add their individual abstracts.
Your submission review will take into account a fair balance of diversity, geographical location and career stage of your symposium speakers.
Symposium submissions will be peer-reviewed as well as undergoing programmatic consideration. A limited number of panel slots will be available. Decisions will be announced towards the end of February 2020.
Please note: if a symposium submission is not accepted, the component speaker talks are NOT automatically considered as abstract submissions. Individual investigators are encouraged to submit separate abstracts for this category.
The call for symposiums is now closed. Those who have submitted abstracts will be notified of the outcomes towards the end of February.
Call for Satellite Workshops
There is limited availability for workshops on the two days preceding the main conference, Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 August.
Abstract submissions for satellite workshops can be for one or two-day programmes. These must include a workshop abstract as well as the proposed programme, including details of proposed speakers.
Satellite workshop submissions will be peer-reviewed, as well as undergoing programmatic consideration. Decisions will be announced towards the end of February 2020.
The call for satellites is now closed. Those who have submitted abstracts will be notified of the outcomes towards the end of February.
Call for Abstracts/Posters
Individual abstracts may be submitted for oral/poster presentation. These abstracts should consist of original work relating to the field of biomagnetism – theory, hardware, software or applications. Abstracts should consist of text only with a 250-word maximum. Preferred organisation is in the form: Background / Methods / Results / Discussion.
This year will see the introduction of a special poster category. To promote transparency and open science we are also encouraging submissions on negative and curious findings, ‘Positive lessons from negative findings’. There is a check box on the submission form which you can tick should your abstract fall into this category.
All abstracts will be peer-reviewed. A limited number of abstracts will be selected for oral presentation. A larger number will be selected for a poster presentation. Decisions will be announced towards the end of April 2020.
The closing date for submissions is Monday 23 March 2020.
