Abstracts of no more than 600 characters (with spaces) and short biographical notes should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as well as to email@example.com by 15 October 2015. Abstracts will be reviewed and results will be announced by 15 November 2015, and the deadline for submitting the papers will be 15 February 2016. Any enquiries should also be sent to both e-mail addresses given above.
