You need to register at LOGIN before uploading of abstracts. Please notice the topic number of your abstract before you go to uploads (name and number of topic can be found in the “Call for abstract”).  For uploading of abstracts click here! If there are any problems with uploading your abstract or registration, please mail nordrocs2016@mutku.fi and we will assist you.

The abstracts will be assessed in the Review Committee, and the oral and poster presentations will be selected based on the Review Committee’s recommendations. If you would prefer a poster presentation, add a note “Poster presentation” above the main text of the abstract. The accepted abstracts will be printed in black/white and distributed at the conference.

A short paper on oral presentations will be required from the accepted speakers before the conference. This should be about 4 pages and will be published on our webpage before the conference as well as in the conference program.
