Post-deadline abstract submission: We can now accept post-deadline poster presentation. However, the post-deadline submission will be closed when the place of poster presentation is filled. Please remember that the post-deadline submission is limited to the poster presentation.

1. Preparation of abstract

A camera-ready abstract must be submitted for oral and poster presentations. All the abstracts will be reviewed by the International Program Committee.

The abstract should explain the contents of your presentation clearly. The abstract should be written in one-page of A4 (or US letter size) paper, and 3 cm top-margin, 5 cm bottom-margin, 2.5 cm margin right and left each are required. Color figures are not allowed. Even if you use color images, they will be printed as black and white image. Halftone (gray scale) images are allowed, but the image quality like a photo-grade printer is not guaranteed. A clear contrast is recommended for image data.

The abstract must be written in English. Detailed format of abstract can be seen here.

2. How to send the abstract

  1.  By e-mail:
    Please send the abstract to the conference office, xrm05@spring8.or.jp as attached PDF file. The PDF files are not perfectly full-compatible over many computer systems. Therefore, we recommend to avoid use of special symbols or Greek letters.

  2.  By "printed" mail:
    Send the abstract  to the conference office:
XRM2005 Secretariat,
SPring-8 Mikazuki, Hyogo, 679-5198

You must finish the registration before sending the abstract. The abstract without registration will not be accepted. The relevant topic to your presentation should be selected from the list of topics of the conference (see bellow).

3. Deadline

Regular Abstract Submission: Closed.
Post-deadline Poster Abstract Submission:
Closed on 31 May 2005

The post-deadline submission will be closed before 31 May, when the place of poster presentation is filled.
