Individual Abstracts

The ICAMPAM Scientific Committee invites submission of research abstracts for its 2019 annual Conference. Abstract submissions open – October 26, 2018 Abstract submissions close – January 26, 2018

Symposia Submission

Symposia will have will focus on a specific theme and would be followed by a moderated discussion. These would have between 3 and 4 presentations by different speakers that address the central theme.  A symposia session would not exceed 75 minutes. Symposia will be 1.5 hours in length. Submissions close on December 13, 2018

Pre-conference workshops

Pre-conference workshops are designed for a smaller number of participants, and should involve interactive features (e.g. data analysis, open discussion, demonstrations etc.) having a high level degree of participant involvement. Workshops will be either 2-3 hours or 3-4 hours in length. Submissions close on December 20, 2018
