Welcome with your abstract!
Accepted extended abstracts will be published in a digital version of the DDI2024 Proceedings on the conference website, on condition that the presenting author is registered for the conference and paid the registration fee.
Authors of abstracts indicate when they submit whether they:
- Give an oral presentation only
- Give an oral presentation and want to be considered for invitation for a full paper submission to a high impact factor scientific journal.
- Contribute with a poster only
- Contribute with a poster and want to be considered for invitation for a full paper submission to a high impact factor scientific journal.
- Please follow the DDI2024 abstract template provided below.
- Abstracts must be written in English.
- Length of the abstract should be min 1000 and maximum 1500 words, excluding references, tables and similar.
- Use A4 page set-up and make all margins (top, bottom, left, right) 25 mm wide.
- Please follow the DDI2024 abstract template provided above. All requirements for the abstract are stated in the template.
- The abstract should give aim and scope of your study, materials and methods used, the results obtained and main conclusions reached. Abstracts with results will be priorities, but high quality and novel abstract content with preliminary results or a clear plan for producing result will also be considered.
- It is the author’s responsibility to submit a correct abstract; any errors in spelling, grammar, or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author, if accepted.
- Abstract written in incorrect formats will be rejected.
Upon submission, indicate one of the following topics that best describes the content of the abstract:
