Abstract Submission and Covid-19

We are fully aware of the Covid-19 related uncertainties in the period between now and the planned conference period 27-30 September 2021. Still, we would like to encourage you to submit an abstract to the LuWQ2021 conference.  We would like to point out that the submission of an abstract does not entail for you any obligation to attend the conference in person.

By submitting an abstract you merely indicate that you are interested in presenting your work at the LuWQ2021 conference. You only have to decide whether or not to attend the conference by 30 April 2021.

For more information, including the time frame when we make follow-up decisions, click to the webpage ‘Abstract Submission & Covid-19’.

A Tip for you to use a Template to prepare in advance Abstract Data

Before you start submitting abstract, we suggest that you prepare the input data in advance in the sequential order as you will be required to provide the data. You can store the data in a Word file from which you later can copy-paste the data one by one item during the submission process. Our experience is that such makes the actual submission process less stressful.

The Template file is your personal tool to prepare for the actual abstract submission. The Template file is NOT intended to be an abstract. Therefore please do not send the filled-out Template file to the conference organisers nor to anyone else. To download the Template file, click: LuWQ2021, TEMPLATE to prepare list of abstract input data, to use to SUBMIT ABSTRACT, 01-11-2020. [LuWQ2021, TEMPLATE to prepare list of abstract input data, to use to SUBMIT ABSTRACT, 01-11-2020.docx].
