Registration and abstract submission form is here. Please submit your presentation abstract when you register; formatting information is provided below. Submitting a presentation is not required for participation in NMC/2017. However, if the conference becomes oversubscribed, acceptance will be preferentially given to applicants who contribute abstracts that are relevant to the workshop. (Special consideration will be given to members of the press and research funding agencies.)

  • Registration fee includes: workshop registration, many meals, conference excursion, and web access to proceedings – for the registrant only.
  • Additional charges for accompanying persons not participating in the workshop itself (to cover meals and/or conference excursion), are currently being determined. Please contact Mary Sikora ( if you are interested.
  • We believe the excursion is a vital part of the workshop, and an excellent opportunity for networking between researchers. We are not able to offer a reduced registration fee for any registered participant who opts out of this activity.
  • All cancellation requests must be made in writing to Mary Sikora at
  • Registration fee can be refunded in full until January 15, 2017.
  • From January 16 – March 1, an administrative fee of $150 will be deducted from the amount paid.
  • No refunds can be made after March 1, 2017.
  • Hotel cancellations must be arranged directly with the hotel.

Abstract Format:

Please submit your abstract with the following format:

  • Abstract must be uploaded as a .pdf file.
  • One page, US letter format.
  • Use Helvetica or Arial font, 11 point.
  • An illustration is encouraged, but not required.
  • Format the abstract title and attributions as shown below, with the presenting author’s name underlined:

    The text of your abstract would go here. Try to keep it nice and concise, while conveying the excitement and importance of the work. While including a figure with the abstract adds to its appeal, it is not necessary to do so. One or two references to your published work [1], if appropriate, would be helpful for those wishing to follow up.
