General abstract submission is not open yet. 

If you are interested in giving a talk, you can contact us directly at with your proposal.

Types of contributions

  • Keynote speakers use 40 minutes (+4 minute discussion) to overview important parts of the field in clear, pedagogical terms, rooted in their own research, and with time to share their personal views of where the research is headed, and what the main challenges are. 
  • Invited speakers have 25 minutes (+4 min discussion) for treating a topic with depth and perspective, highlighting not only their important, recent achievements but also the issues still left to solve. 
  • Contributed speakers have 12 (+2 minutes discussion) for single-result presentations of emerging, exciting research.
  • Young researchers are Ph.D. students or postdocs (within 3 years of graduation) selected based on potential and excellence.
  • Poster presentations can show finished or ongoing research projects, which is a great way to get feedback on your research, and show exciting things you are or have been working on. 

How to submit an abstract

1. Download the abstract template (see bottom of page: "2019 Carbonhagen Abstract Template"). The example was kindly supplied by previous CBH speaker Dr. Scott Bunch, Boston University, from the 2012 meeting.

2. Replace the text with your own. Please follow the guidelines in the template. Make sure you do not exceed limitations, exceeding text will not be saved.

3. Find a suitable research picture or figure and a portrait photo of the main author. Your submission is not complete without these two.

4. SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT along with the research picture and portrait photo to ABSTRACT@CARBONHAGEN.COM.

PLEASE USE THE "DOWNLOAD" ARROW at the bottom of page, and open the file in Acrobat or a browser:   

....IF you have problems entering text in the template, you can submit the equivalent two texts and two images in a word or odt file. Please do not use special formatting. 

What we will do

  • We will format and post the abstracts on the homepage as they are accepted.
  • The abstracts will appear in the printed book of abstracts - as long as we receive them before the deadline.
  • We will "consolidate" the programme within the first week of August.
