Abstracts Submission

Abstracts for talks and posters should be submitted before 15 June 2015 using the form below.

Abstracts for talks will be selected by the Scientific Committee. As a participant you have the choice to indicate on the abstract form whether you want to participate with a poster presentation or whether you prefer giving an oral presentation and in which symposium if selected. The program committee will select the presentations from these submissions and assign them either to chosen symposium or to one of the non-thematic session. If not selected for an oral presentation you agree that your contributions will be automatically assigned to the poster sessions.

Guidelines for speakers and posters:

Oral presentations (talks including discussion) are divided into three groups:

  • Plenary talks: 60 min
  • Symposium talks: 20 minutes
  • Open Oral Session talks: 15 minutes

To upload and test your talk, please come to the conference office the day before your talk is scheduled. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR TALK RUNS ON A WINDOWS 7 ENVIRONMENT. Your presentation will be deleted after your talk.

Poster presentations are divided into two parts, each over two days - Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday. Posters will be changed on Wednesday. Posters must be A0 size maximum, in portrait orientation (vertical), so 84.1 cm wide x 118.9 cm high. Mounting material will be provided. Please see the poster list for scheduling.


Best Poster Award: This year we will be offering an award for the *BEST IBAC POSTER*, open to all poster submissions.
The winner will receive perfect binoculars for fieldwork - the SWAROVSKI OPTIK SLC 42 (SLC 10x42)!

These binoculars can go everywhere with you. You can take the SLC 42 binoculars with you on your extended observation trips in the surrounding area, both during the day and at twilight. The SLC 10x42 binoculars are sturdy in any weather, day in day out, and also stand out thanks to their particularly high optical quality. You will enjoy these rugged, ergonomic binoculars for many years.

The award will be announced at the end of the conference. The decision will be based both on originality of the content and graphic appeal.
