The European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) organizes meetings twice a year, namely the E-MRS Spring Meeting in Strasbourg and the E-MRS Fall Meeting in Warsaw.
This year´s Fall Meeting will begin on Monday, September, 19th, and will end on Friday, September, 23rd.
It will take place at the Central Campus of Warsaw University of  Technology, the largest technical university of Poland.

Warsaw and Karlsruhe Nanotechnology Day will be the satellite event on future visions of nanotechnology accompanying the conference E-MRS Fall Meeting 2011.
It will take place on September, 22nd, from 9am to 5pm with a separate poster session.

Abstract preparation

The Abstract should clearly describe the most important facts from the presentation (2000 characters):

  • submission on-line (copy/paste from your word processor is available)
  • simple equations can be inlined
  • no heading information (title, authors, affiliations) in the abstract body
  • the abstract is displayed in the final form in the browser (WYS/WYG) and has to be verified/corrected by the author on-line as it will be published as it is without any further edition by the organizers
  • you can correct your abstract on-line at any time.

Oral presentation

Duration of oral presentation is planned to be 25 minutes with exception of talks with  individual agreements.
The following equipment will be available:

  • laptops with Windows XP and Microsoft Office Power Point.
    We prefer presentations on CD or USB flash memory.
    If the presenting author requires something else, please contact organizers
  • digital projector
  • microphone
Poster presentation

The organizers invite and encourage young scientists, recently graduated or during preparation of their master of science thesis to take part in our poster session.

The maximum size for a poster is: vertical 2.4 m and horizontal 1.0 m. The poster board will be full white board.

Please make sure that the poster's authors will be present during the evening poster session and ensure the discussion about the presentation with other participants.

The poster should be removed directly after the conference event (in the evening of  September, 22 nd).
