Registration and abstract submission form is here. Please submit your presentation abstract when you register; formatting information is provided below. Again, submitting a presentation is not required for participation in FNS/2019. However, if the conference becomes oversubscribed, acceptance will be preferentially given to applicants contributing abstracts relevant to the workshop. Special consideration will be given to members of the press, research funding agencies, and philanthropic organizations. Please note that contributed talks will be selected from abstracts submitted on or before 4 Nov 2018.

Student rates are available to currently-enrolled graduate students who provide confirmation of their active academic status by their advisor or institution.

  • Use Helvetica or Arial font only, 11 point.
  • An illustration is encouraged but is not required.

    The text of your abstract should go here. Try to keep it nice and concise, while conveying the excitement and importance of your work. While including a figure with the abstract adds to its appeal, it is not necessary to do so. One or two references to your published work [1], if appropriate, would be helpful for those wishing to follow up.
