Abstract Guidelines

The Scientific Committee is pleased to invite authors to submit their abstracts to be delivered at the 5th European Meeting of the International Society for Microbial Electrochemistry and Technology (ISMET).

Deadline for abstract submission has been extendedJune 7, 2021

1. Before you begin

All abstracts must be submitted through the online form. Logging within the electronic platform is required prior to abstract submission.

English is the default language for the conference. Written content (abstracts, slides, and posters) needs to be in English, and presenters should be able to participate in an English-based live discussion.

The maximum number of abstract submissions per author is 2.

All presenters will be required to register for the conference by 30 July 2021. Presenters who do not register by this date will not be included in the conference programme. We will issue acceptance notices by June 21 so you can proceed with registering. 

Presenters will need to register for the entire conference, as one-day rates will not be available. Q&A sessions may be scheduled at any time during the conference program, from Monday 13 September to Wednesday 15 September. Oral presentations will be pre-recorded but speakers should plan to be present for live discussion sessions. In most cases, the Scientific Committee will not be able to accommodate special scheduling requests due to the large number of speakers and the cascading effect that any changes have on the rest of the program.

The Scientific Committee reserves the right to ask authors of oral abstracts to change their presentation format. Specifically, authors submitting abstracts for oral presentation may, in some cases, be invited to present a poster instead. We will notify you well in advance of any such change.
