Guidelines for Abstract Preparation

Title: The title should be concise, clear and informative and should reflect the content of the presentation. Avoid abbreviations, scientific names, and formulae where possible.

Author names and affiliations: Present the authors' name/s and affiliation, addresses where the actual work was done below the title. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author's name and in front of the appropriate address. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, and e-mail address of each of the author.

Abstract: Abstract not exceeding 300 words with brief introductory words, objectives, materials and methods, results, and main conclusions. The name of any plant or animal appearing for the first time in the abstract should be given its scientific name in the brackets. It should not have any references, tables, or figures.

Key words: A list of 3 to 5 words for additional index words follows the abstract. It includes species (common and scientific name), chemicals, and physiological and pathological terms.
