Guidelines for Abstracts

Last modified: 16. May 2022

Abstract format

Presentation preference
Authors should indicate the presentation preference (presentation or poster). Please note that the final decision on the presentation format rests with the Scientific Committee.

Abstract titles should be brief and reflect the content of the abstract.

Body of the abstract
Abstracts should include four main parts:

  1.  Purpose/Objective;
  2.  Material/Methods;
  3.  Results;
  4.  Conclusion.

The use of standard abbreviations is desirable. A unique or unusual abbreviation must be placed (in round brackets) after the first appearance of the word for which it stands.
The online abstract submission procedure will not accept abstracts that exceed 2,500 characters (body of the abstract, excluding spaces).

Abstract selection process

Submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed by a panel of international experts in the subject field. The abstracts' review criteria are based on clarity, supporting data, scientific rigour, potential significance, interest in the topic chosen, and innovation or usefulness. Research that has not yet been conducted or where results are yet incomplete will be rejected.

Submitted abstracts will be selected for one of the following presentation formats:
- Oral presentation (abstracts submitted for oral presentation at any of the sessions): only a limited number of abstracts will be selected for oral presentation.
- Posters submitted for presentation in a poster session: the posters will be grouped by topic and displayed throughout the meeting.

Abstracts submitted for the 3rd International Jackal Symposium can be withdrawn until 15th October, 2022. To cancel your abstract, please send an email to 3IJS@uni-mate.huPlease note that after the date mentioned above, withdrawal of abstracts is no longer possible.

NOTE: those abstracts that are submitted for oral presentation/poster presentation should be presented at the meeting. If the presenting author cannot attend the congress, they are expected to assign a replacement and inform the 3rd IJS organizers of the replacement immediately.

A book of abstracts is planned to be published from the summaries received. The authors of the best presentations and posters will have the opportunity to publish their results in the form of a scientific article in the COLUMELLA Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences ( ). The requests will be sent to the first author of the submitted abstract based on the decision of the Scientific Committee.
