A preferred presentation type should be selected during the submission from the following options:
Oral presentation (20 minutes incl. discussion)
Each young poster presenter should decide whether his presentation should be included in the “Young Scientists’ Poster Award” selection.
Abstracts could be amended in the online submission systemif saved as drafts (through the “Save as draft” button) and no later than the submission deadline of 28 February 2018.

Equations may be inserted within the abstract text using the built-in editor. Equation number should be added in a plane text, not within the equation editor and should be always used in brackets. For referencing in the text use the equation numbers in brackets, e.g. "for calculating runoff volume, equation (3) has been used"
References should all be placed below the main abstract text. Always indicate the reference order number in square brackets at the beggining of each reference submitted. References should be separated by semicomas (eg.  ref. xxx;  ref. yyy;...).
