  • Title
  • Names of co-authors
  • Institutions and addresses
  • E-mail address of corresponding author
  • Text (less than 300 words).

Deadline for submission is March 25, 2010.
In order to submit an abstract, participants should first be registered, then, being logged in, choose Abstract in the menu bar on Registration page.


Participants are also encouraged to prepare a poster, using the poster template provided. Click on the following link to get the poster template.
The organizers of the MPN&MPNr-EuroNet workshop have arranged so that the first 50 posters received can be printed in Nantes free of charge to the participants. For best printing results, posters should be prepared using figures and images of the highest resolution. They should be sent as attached Power Point files at Mrs Elodie Hervio. Click on the following link to send a mail to Elodie Hervio. Deadline for submission is March 25, 2010.

Last, we wished to apologize for the late opening of the registration web site.
Long delayed access to COST and university funds is the reason for the very short time between the opening of registration and submission of abstracts, posters and scholarship applications.

Join us in a friendly atmosphere and enjoy the conference
