Abstract submission

Ph.D. students and postdoctoral fellows attending the Merck Organic Chemistry Symposium 2023 are cordially invited to participate actively in the meeting by submitting abstracts for poster presentations and oral communications. Download the template for submitting an abstract.

Poster size is A0, nominally 84 cm wide and 118 cm high, in portrait format (no landscape). A poster number will be assigned to each abstract and will be communicated to the presenting author. Poster presenters are responsible for setting up their poster prior to the first poster session and removing it after the second poster session.

Abstracts selected for oral communications will be allotted 20 to 30 minutes of presentation time (including questions), depending on the number of slots available. The exact schedule will be communicated to the presenting author. PowerPoint or pdf files should be uploaded on the conference computers (Mac and PC available) prior to the beginning of the session during which they will be presented.
