Abstracts of the communications to be presented in EUCMOS 2018 were sent by e-mail to the Congress Secretariat (e-mail: as attachment in WORD FOR WINDOWS FORMAT.
Only documents respecting the layout of this TEMPLATE were considered. Notification of reception of the abstract by EUCMOS 2018 was sent afterwords.

The FINAL deadline for reception of Abstracts WAS JUNE 30th, 2018. Please note that an accepted paper will be included in the final programme of EUCMOS 2018 only if an author has formally registered and paid his registration fee.

All abstracts were reviewed by subject experts.
Abstracts of all lectures and posters will be published in the BOOK OF ABSTRACTS, which will be available at the Registration Desk. You can also download the Book of Abstracts and its cover from the link above.


Posters to be presented in EUCMOS 2018 shall fit the size 90X120 cm (Portrait format). The posters can be printed locally at cost of ca. 25 Eur./m2, if delivered at the Receprion Desk at your arrival (19th August 2018) in digital format. Payment must be done at the time the poster will be collected at the desk, in cash.
