Abstracts of the communications to be presented in EUCMOS 2018 shall be sent by e-mail to the Congress Secretariat (e-mail: as attachment in WORD FOR WINDOWS FORMAT. In the body of the message indicate clearly your preference for the type of presentation (oral or poster).
Only documents respecting the layout of this TEMPLATE will be considered. Notification of reception of the abstract by EUCMOS 2018 will be sent afterwords.

Abstracts must arrive not later than MARCH 31th, 2018 to the Congress Office. 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 will undergo a review by subject experts, who also will take the final decision regarding the type of presentation (oral or as poster).
Abstracts of all lectures and posters will be published in the BOOK OF ABSTRACTS, which will be available at the Registration Desk.
