Call for abstracts

Abstract submission

You can now submit your abstract for Physics@Veldhoven!

Abstracts can be submitted for oral presentations in the parallel sessions (12 minutes) and poster presentations. Abstracts have to be submitted by the first author, and can be submitted here.

Deadline is 6 September 2019, 12:00 noon.

Please note that submission of an abstract DOES NOT imply registration for the conference. Registration will open soon.


Please follow the guidelines carefully when submitting your abstract(s).

  • The focal point of the parallel and poster sessions is the work of young researchers, where preference will be given to abstracts by postdocs and PhD candidates;
  • As participation to the conference for MSc and BSc students is rather limited, and can therefore not be guaranteed, MSc and BSc students are not allowed to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation;
  • An abstract can be submitted EITHER for an oral (parallel-session) presentation OR  for a poster presentation. Please note that in case your oral presentation is not selected, it will not be converted into a poster presentation.

When submitting an abstract for a parallel session you will be asked to fill in the name of the group leader/Principal Investigator (P.I.) involved in the work to be presented. For oral presentation submissions, we ask for a short motivation from your P.I. as to why your proposal should be selected (max. 75 words). Your P.I. will receive a confirmation email with all the proposals submitted in his/her name.

Presentation selection procedure

The selection of oral presentations by the programme committee is based on the following criteria:

  • The year of your PhD studies/postdoc position (NB: postdoc students will receive the same priortisation as last-year PhD candidates);
  • Whether you have previously presented at Physics@Veldhoven;
  • The short motivation provided by your P.I. regarding your oral presentation.

For selection of the poster presentation the following guidelines will be followed:

  • The year of the PhD studies/postdoc position (NB: postdoc students are receive the same priortisation as last-year PhD candidates);
  • Whether you have previously presented at Physics@Veldhoven;
  • We aim to select at least one poster presentation from each (working) group. For each (working) group the rule applies that the maximum number of accepted posters equals half the total number of PhD candidates and postdocs together. For example: in case of a total of 4 PhD candidates and 4 postdocs, so 8 in total, the maximum number of selected posters totals 4;
  • If the number of submitted posters does exceed the number of available slots, the programme committee will make a selection based on the submissions per theme and also taking into account the programme of the parallel sessions.
