Abstract submissions for NanoSPD7 have now closed

The NanoSPD7 organising committee invites you to submit abstracts for oral and poster presentation at NanoSPD7 to be held in Sydney during the period of 2 – 7 July 2017. You are also encouraged to submit full papers for publication in the open access journal IOP Conference Series: Materials Science and Engineering, which is indexed in ISI Web of Science. Your abstracts and full papers must follow strictly the instructions listed below.

Instructions for abstract submission

  • Written in English
  • No more than 200 words in the abstract excluding the title, authors’ names, and affiliations
  • All abbreviations/acronyms must be defined
  • No symbol, figure or table to be included in an abstract
  • Each presenting author can submit multiple abstracts but will be assigned no more than one oral presentation
  • Abstracts must be submitted before 21 January 2017. Late submissions will not be included in the abstract book and will only be considered for poster presentation
  • Please nominate your preference for the theme and presentation type (oral or poster); however, the Organising Committee reserves the right for the final decision on the category of the talk

Instructions for full paper submission

  • Follow the instructions in http://conferenceseries.iop.org/content/authors
