Call for Papers

Abstract Guidelines

The abstract is what users and researchers will read when deciding whether your article pertains to their interests and needs. For this reason, your abstract is an extremely important and powerful representation of your article. As an author, you should spend time ensuring that it is readable and that it contains a comprehensive description of your research.

In less than 2,700 characters you will need to summarize your findings and describe the implications of those findings. Your abstract must be self-contained, without abbreviations, footnotes or references. It should be a microcosm of the full paper. Ensure that your abstract reads well and is grammatically correct.

When submitting an abstract for your original research, it is important to state the primary objective and offer any tested hypotheses. Describe your research design and methodology and accurately state the following: the methods and procedures you employed, the main outcomes and results, and the conclusions that might be drawn from these data and results. Include any implications for further research or application/practice.


The results of work to be reported must not be published before the Congress. Equally, papers that refer to test methods other than IULTCS official methods, or the equivalent ISO or EN methods will be rejected. This will not exclude presentations, which are seeking to present newly developed methods, but it would be preferable that these should simultaneously be submitted to the relevant IU Commissions as possible new IU Test methods.

Papers advertising or dealing solely with the use of proprietary products are not to be accepted. Please use generic names and do not refer to commercial products during lecture.

An abstract should not have more than 2,700 characters and 3-5 keywords, which will be used for indexation. For abstract submission please register with the abstract submission system and follow the instructions.

After the closing date, you will be informed in due time, whether your paper has been accepted into the Congress programme. The author(s) will be advised whether their work is to be delivered as an oral lecture or visual display.

The abstracts will be made available on the IULTCS 2019 website prior to the Congress. With the beginning of the Congress, every participant will receive a Book of Abstracts containing all Oral Lectures and Visual Display presentations.

Please note, that authors of accepted papers (oral and visual) will have to provide a scientific full paper prior to the congress. The organisers intend to publish full papers on Qucosa® – the Saxon Document and Publication Server. Qucosa is a free content repository server. It has been established for the purpose of electronic publishing, reference and long-term archiving of scientific publications. Accepted presenters will be provided with detailed information once the reviewing process is completed.
