Contributed Talks

In the tradition of previous ISV meetings, every effort will be made to give all those who would like to contribute a talk the opportunity to do so. We especially encourage students to present their research work in talks. There will be no parallel sessions, i.e. all contributed talks will be presented to the entire meeting. We will set the duration of the contributed talks after registration of contributions closes. Given the expected number of participants, contributed talks will probably be 15-20 minutes (including discussion). Please keep in mind that talk slots are ultimately limited, and that we will assign them on a first come first served basis. Do not wait until the last day (i.e. until 10th May) to register your talk!


There will be one poster session on the evening of Tuesday 23rd July. We plan for posters to be displayed throughout the meeting, providing the opportunity to discuss posters during meals and breaks, but this will depend on the number of poster submissions. It is possible to present both a talk and posters. The poster boards will be for A0 portrait (120 cm high x 85 cm wide) displays. Your poster can cover the entire space or whatever portion of the space you choose, but should not exceed the board size!

Abstract Submission

Abstract submission closed on May 10th 2013. We encourage you to submit abstracts for your contribution(s) as early as possible. We will confirm your contribution as soon as we receive both your registration and abstract. Although we will attempt to accommodate all requests for talks, please be aware that we will accept talks at a first come first served basis.


1) Download the abstract template to your computer. Prepare the abstract according to the instructions given in the template. Prepare the abstracts for each of your contribution(s) in a separate file. Rename the abstract file to include your name and type of presentation (e.g. 'Gordon_talk.doc'). Contact us if you require a different file format for the abstract.

2) We strongly encourage you to include a figure in your abstract! The template allows for approximately 400 words and a 60x50 mm figure. Please use the space available. Everyone loves to read more about your research!

3) Send your abstract(s) as email attachment(s) to info@isv2013.org. Please include in the body of the email the title, authors, and type of your presentation(s).

4) Please indicate during the registration process the titles and types of your presentation.

5) We will send you an acceptance email for your contribution(s) after we have received the abstract and completed registration. Please note that sending an abstract without registration will not reserve you a slot for a talk.
