Requirements to abstracts

An abstract must be written in the TeX format (LaTeX 2ε). The length of an abstract should not be more than one page in the A4 format and for an abstract you must use the following parameters.

\documentclass[11pt, twoside]{article}

We require that for your abstract you follow the sample. You should simply replace the text in example with your text. Figures in abstracts are not allowed. The Organizing Committee warns you that abstracts longer than one page and not following the rules indicated above will not be accepted.

The files of abstracts must be uploaded from your Personal Office. (Please do not send your abstract via e-mail!) You will get an access to your Personal Office after your registration. To upload your file, you should

  1. enter your Personal Office,

  2. click on “Loading Abstracts”,

  3. click on “Browse”,

  4. find the file with your abstract,

  5. click “Upload”.

Your Personal Office allows you to save the last version of your abstract in the database. If you would like to replace an old version of your abstract with it's new version, you should simply upload a new file from your Personal Office following the procedure outlined above. The name of the file must have the extension “tex”. Please do not upload PDF or DVI files. If an abstract has more than one author, then its file is uploaded by one of coauthors, but all coauthors must be registered. The Organizing Committee is planning to publish the Proceedings of the Conference in one of the issues of the journal Proceedings of the International Geometry Center. Before publication all works will be refereed.

Abstracts will be accepted until April, 11, 2014.
