Abstracts can be submitted electronically to Dr Adam Robinson. The abstract should not exceed 300 words and authors should indicate at the bottom of the abstract whether they wish their submission to be considered for poster only, oral presentation only, or both. The deadline for abstract submission is 18th March 2011.
