Link to the abstract submission form

The deadline to do so is set on 16 December 2020 (23:59:59 UTC+1).

The form to submit your abstract is divided in separate fields:

  • Title: give your abstract an appealing title that arouses curiosity and encourages to read the full abstract.
  • Abstract: write an abstract on your work, containing no more than 650 words including references. Only plain, bold and italic text is allowed, as well as subscript and superscript. All other layout will not be exported. Images are not allowed. Please note that this abstract must be camera-ready, i.e. VLIZ does not foresee any editing, the author is fully responsible for the contents and language.
  • Keywords: well thought out keywords make sure your abstract is easily detected by interested readers.
  • Authors: for each author, the full name and affiliation must be submitted. The order in which you submit, is the order in which they will be published in the book of abstracts.

A jury, composed of VLIZ staff and members of the VLIZ Scientific Committee, will carefully read all the applications and will make a selection of pre-doc abstracts to be presented plenary on the VLIZ Marine Science Day 2021. Note that post-doc abstracts are no longer accepted for a classic oral presentation. Post-doc researchers are encouraged to submit an abstract in the poster session . See below how to apply.

To increase the probability that your abstract is selected for an oral presentation, write it in a language that is easy to understand for an multidisciplinary scientific public and sounds fascinating for the evaluators. If your research is in progress or ended, this increases your score. Abstracts on planned future research are generally less likeable to be selected.

The abstract that you submit should be camera-ready. Kindly note that the abstract will be published in the Book of abstracts as submitted, without additional final edititing by VLIZ.

All applicants will be informed about their selection by the end of January. Abstracts that are not selected for an oral presentation, will automatically be accepted to participate as a digital poster.
