Abstract Submission

We invite abstract submissions for oral or poster presentations from all neutron beam users in any of the topics listed below.

Oral Presentations

The presentation screen in the AINSE Theatre is compatible with both 4:3 and 16:9 (widescreen) aspect ratio slides.

  • Laptop connectors: HDMI is available (no VGA). The AINSE Theatre is configured to use ClickShare, which enables any laptop with a USB port and any iOS or Android tablet/phone with wifi to connect to the audio/visual system in the Theatre.
  • USB ports: two ports are available to upload files to the Theatre’s local desktop, though one will be taken up by the clicker/pointer.
  • Audio: available, including wireless handheld microphones and wireless lapel microphones if needed.
  • Movies: we recommend testing any animations (e.g. from MATLAB output or similar) embedded within slides before the conference. Slides tested on your own device can use Clickshare on the day.


Please ensure your poster is A0 size (594 x 841 mm) and portrait orientation. This is to ensure all posters fit on the limited number of poster boards available.

Poster SLAM

Students who elect to give a poster can also request to take part in the Student Poster Slam where they will have one minute each to summarise their posters, a traditionally popular and entertaining part of such meetings. Please note that places in the Student Poster Slam are limited to approximately 30 participants and first priority will be given to eligible students who submitted their abstract early.

Topics and Guidelines

As part of the abstract submission process, we also request information on your career status (student or ECR) as well as your gender. This is to assist us in ensuring that all delegates have equal opportunity to participate in the conference. For more information, please see the Diversity page.

Your choice of scientific track will assist the organising committee to assign reviewers for your abstract. You may also nominate keywords to assist with reviewer assignment.
