Late abstracts

Thank you for considering submission of an abstract for presentation at the Venice 2016 Symposium. 

The deadline for abstract submission officially expired. Should you wish to submit a late abstract, please contact us on papers@venicesymposium.it: all efforts will be made to evaluate your proposal for potential inclusion in the Symposium programme.

Abstracts (at least one but no more than two full pages) should prepared using the template  provided and submitted as a PDF file attachment.
Abstracts must clearly describe the content of presentations and their basis (detailed case study, discussion of experience from practice, preliminary research data, completed research not presented previously, review of literature, administrative initiatives and regulations, etc) and may be submitted for oral or poster presentation. 

The official language of the Symposium is English and all abstracts must therefore be submitted and presented in clear English with accurate grammar and spelling of a quality suitable for publication. 

Please note that the Organising Secretariat will confirm receipt of all abstracts. Authors not receiving an e-mail notifying receipt of their abstract should check with the Secretariat to ensure their abstract has been effectively received.

Abstracts submitted for presentation will undergo a thorough selection process carried out by world leading waste management experts, represented by the Symposium International Advisory Board and Executive Programme Committee.

Following notification of acceptance of the abstract submitted, all Authors will be asked to provide the Organizers with a paper.
Final papers should be prepared in accordance with the Instructions for Authors and their quality and contents should conform with the abstract originally submitted. Authors presenting their work in an oral session will also be requested to submit their PowerPoint presentations no later than 7th November 2016.

All final papers accepted to Venice 2016, including papers scheduled in poster sessions, will be published on a dedicated set of Proceedings. 

Additionally, a number of leading papers will be invited to be peer-reviewed for potential publication on Waste Management Journal Special Issues, published by Elsevier (IF=3.829).
