Who can submit abstracts?
ICMN2020 is open to abstract submissions from all researchers in the field.
How many co-authors are allowed on an abstract?

There is no limit to the number of co-authors per abstract, although we strongly recommend listing co-authors if they meet ALL the following criteria:

– made substantial contributions to concept and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data,
– drafted the abstract or revised it for intellectual content,
– approved the final version to be submitted.

What is the allowed size of the abstract?
Each abstract can count up to 300 words.  We encourage people to embed the table/graphics’ captions with the images themselves.
Can I include graphs or tables in my abstract?
It is possible, but not mandatory, to include tables or graphs/images in the abstract.

A maximum of three tables/graphs in total can be included. Please note that each image must be less than 4MB and should be formatted as PNG, JPG or GIF files, with ideally 600 dpi.  Adobe PDF files are not accepted.

To add an image into your abstract, please click on the “Add Media” button, located on the top left corner of the Abstract body field. Once inserted, you can left/center/right align it in the body of the abstract.  To maintain the resolution, we ask that you do not shrink the embedded image.  Also, please note that all captions MUST be saved with the graphic file.

IMPORTANT NOTE: you cannot copy/paste an image into the form – all images must be uploaded as instructed above.

How does the review process work?
All submitted abstracts will go through a peer-review process carried out by a panel of researchers. Each abstract will be reviewed by at least four reviewers. The Program Committee makes the final selection of abstracts to be included in the conference agenda.

Can I request a Letter of Support to obtain a travel visa?

Please note that the ICMN Secretariat will not issue any invitation letters in support of your visas to enter the US.  These are exclusively reserved for our invited lecturers only.  Instead, ICMN will provide Letters of Support.

To obtain such a Letter of Support, you first need to register for the conference and pay in full. ICMN will issue these letters (via email) which will include your name, affiliation, address as well as our confirmation of your registration payment and information about the conference itself.

The Letter of Support does not financially or otherwise obligate the conference organizers in any way. All expenses incurred in relation to the conference and immigration requirements are your sole responsibility.

NOTE: Should your visa request be declined, please note that our refund policies will remain in place.

I have to cancel my registration - how do I do this?

Requests for cancellations must be emailed to icmn@worldeventsforum.com or faxed to +1.312 278.0787. Refunds are subject to a $35 processing fee through February 28, 2020. No refunds will be made available on or after March 1, 2020.
