Peer Review

Submitted abstracts will be assessed by the MSB 2024 Scientific Committee in a double-blind manner. Reviewers will not have access to your name, institution, or position status. The review will be based solely on the scientific information presented in the abstract.

Four criteria will be used to evaluate each abstract: originality of the work, quality of the abstract/technical description, relevance to the symposium topics, relevance to the field of microscale separations and bioanalysis.

Abstract Requirements

  • Researchers with new results in areas relevant to the meeting are encouraged to submit an abstract online for oral or poster presentation consideration.
  • One abstract may be submitted per attendee as presenting author.
  • The presenting author must be registered as a delegate and pay the required fee by the registration deadline.
  • All presenters of an oral presentation who are graduate students or postdoctoral fellows at the end date of the meeting are eligible for Young Scientist Award, depending on availability. 
  • All abstracts must be written exclusively in English (including the title, abstract text, author names, and affiliations).
  • Kindly see links to Key Dates & Topics for more information about topic areas and abstract submission deadlines.
  • If you cannot submit the abstract prior to receiving company approval by the date abstracts are due (see Key Dates), please submit a placeholder with the title, authors, and a brief description of the kind of material that you would like to present, and indicate when approval is expected. This material will be kept confidential. It is your responsibility to revise the abstract to the final version upon approval.
  • Authors will be notified whether the submitted abstract has been accepted for oral or poster presentation, or was not selected for presentation.

Abstract Submission

  • First, please register your participation on the conference (will open on January 1, 2024).
  • Use the web form using your unique registration code (received within registration) to submit an abstract.
  • It is allowed to submit one abstract per registered participant.
  • The summary paragraph of the abstract should be no more than 300 words and contain a summary of the work presented. Title, Authors, Affiliations, References (optional) and Acknowledgments do not count towards this limit. If you add any graphics, shorten the text so that the total maximum length of the abstract is 1 page.
  • Abstract Title: Every word in the abstract title should be capitalized (with the usual exceptions). The use of CAPITAL LETTERS should be limited to abbreviations.
  • Include author names, affiliations, or self-references within the abstract; nevertheless, they will be temporarily removed for a double-blind review by Scientific Committee.
  • References, if presented, should be numbered sequentially in the order in which they are cited in the text. The numbers should be set in brackets, thus [1, 8]. References are to be collected in numerical order at the end of the abstract under the heading "References". Please format the references according to the Analytica Chimica Acta journal style (see the basic examples below). Titles of journals should be abbreviated.
