ISHPSSB & ABFHiB 2017 Meeting

Your Presentation

Full paper 

Both in the case of oral presentation and that of posters, it is highly desirable that you provide you full text to the public attending the conference. The other participants will be able to read your paper before, during or after your presentation. This will make possible a deeper and more fruitful discussion of your contribution.

The deadline for uploading the full paper is one week before the beginning of the conference, because it will be necessary to prepare special web pages with links to each PDF file.

To ensure some uniformity, we ask you to make use of the provided template or to follow these guidelines:

You may format your contribution in Letter or A4 paper format. All margins should be 2,5 cm or 1 inch. Employ simple spacing between lines. Don’t use any unusual font, please. If you use a font such as Times New Roman, size 12 will be OK. If you use a sans-serif font such as Arial, size 11 is preferable.

The first page must begin with the title of your work, followed by the names of the author(s), their status (student, researcher, professor…), institution(s) and contact e-mails. Then add the abstract of your paper (exactly the same you submitted to the conference), and the full text of your contribution. At the end of your paper, add acknowledgments and full bibliographic references cited in your article.

There are no size limits to your text. Remember, however, that the aim of your full paper is providing additional reading for the participants of the conference. Nobody will be able to read papers that are too long. We strongly suggest that you restrain your full paper to 5-10 pages.

Don’t add unnecessary images. If your paper does include images, make sure that their resolution is not too high and that your file is smaller than 5 MB. 

After preparing and revising your paper, produce a PDF version to upload it to the conference site, please. After creating the PDF version, you should open it and check if it is correct.

Notice that after uploading your paper it will be impossible to exclude it or to change it.

To upload your paper, you should send it as an e-mail attachment to You should send that message from your registered e-mail, otherwise it will not be accepted. Notice that the above described e-mail address ( will only be able to receive files smaller than 5 MB and that NO OTHER MESSAGES should be sent to this e-mail address. Don’t send any requests or inquiries to that e-mail address: they won’t be read or answered.

If there are coauthors, all of them must have read and confirmed the final version of the full paper. However, the full paper should be uploaded only once, by the first author.

VERY IMPORTANT: Before attaching the full paper to your e-mail, you should produce a copy and change its title according to the following model: ISHPSSB-2017-paper-###.pdf, where ### is the number of your paper, with three digits (such as 345 or 007). This is the automatic serial number it received when your paper was submitted. It was informed to you when your paper was accepted, and it also appears after the title of your paper, in the final online conference program. That number will allow us to link your full paper to the corresponding program entry.

Notice that there are several hundred participants in this conference. It will be impossible to prepare the links in the case of the papers that are sent without the information of their respective registration numbers. Notice that the title of the file should exactly correspond to this pattern: ISHPSSB-2017-paper-###.pdf. Pay attention and don’t change letter cases (upper case, lower case), hyphens, etc. Here are some unacceptable examples:




If you do not follow the mandatory pattern, the link to your full paper will not function and all your work will be wasted.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your full paper follows the above guidelines, and that its file is correctly named. Also, double-check whether you have really attached the file to your message, before sending it. It is VERY COMMON to send messages without the intended attachments.
