The 35-word abstract should be repeated in the summary. Refrain from the use of asterisks, acknowledgments, job descriptions or footnotes. Cite references at the end of the summary.

Style Guide

This style guide is a reference for all submitting authors.

Please make sure that your paper does not contain non-English font packages (for example, Japanese, Korean, or Chinese fonts, etc.) in the body of your paper summary, as well as in all figures and tables. Characters in these fonts cannot be seen by reviewers.

  • Abstracts contain inappropriate content
  • Abstracts fall outside of the topical scope of the WOMBAT conference
