Abstract and Article/Poster Submission Procedures
If you encounter problems with any of the above, please email us on
- The deadline for article and poster submission was 15 May.
Everyone who registered should now have a login ID and its password
(if you do not, please
mail us) and should receive formal notification if your
abstract has been accepted shortly. One you have been told it is
accepted, you should proceed as follows;
- If you want to modify your article/poster details (e.g.
registered title, author names etc), use
this on-line procedure.
- Please add/replace individual HTML/Image/Molecule files using
on-line procedure. Please do NOT send Microsoft Word files if
at all possible. The mechanism only really works if HTML etc is
submitted. If you wish to send Word files, please use mechanisms
2 or 3.
- Molecules can be
submitted to the conference database using Peter Ertl's JME
(Java Molecular Editor).
- We also have alternative mechanisms if mechanism 1
causes you any difficulties.
- Create an archive of your file(s) and email this as an email attachment.
Remember to give the archive a distinctive name (i.e.
027.zip rather than echet98.zip), and to name the "home
document" (from which all others are called) index.htm .
Please note the distinction between the email address
email@example.com, which is used ONLY for discussing articles, and
firstname.lastname@example.org, which must be used for submitting
them. We do prefer to receive Web-ready HTML documents, images and
molecules, but are happy to accept a Microsoft Word document and
e.g. ChemDraw files. We prefer Word 6, Office 97, Office 98 or
"Interchange or RTF" format. These will then be converted to
Web-form by the conference editors, but please note that a minimal
amount of "tweaking" for the Web will be applied.
- Alternatively, you can send either a Word document or an
archive of Web-files (ie in ZIP or Stuffit format) using ftp to our
conference ftp account. Using Telnet or an ftp client, connect to
ftp.ch.ic.ac.uk , login as anonymous (providing your email
as a password), type
put yourfile.zip (or whatever type of file)
To preserve confidentiallity, you will NOT be able to view a
directory of the files placed there. Please also email us on email@example.com
to let us know the file is there.
- The Abstract registration procedures
will remain open for a few more days for those who have
notified us requesting a short extension.
