Home > Instruction for paper


Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the conference areas or topics. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. Only original papers should be submitted. Authors are advised to follow ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with proceedings.

Authors can submit their work in the form of a Regular Paper, representing completed and validated research, or as a Position Paper, portraying a short report of work in progress or an arguable opinion about an issue discussing ideas, facts, situations, methods, procedures or results of scientific research focused on one of the conference topic areas. All papers must be submitted through the online submission platform. After the paper submission has been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic confirmation e-mail.


The ICACE provides you with an excellent opportunity to present the results of your work to a wide, interested and experienced audience. The organizers therefore encourage you to submit abstracts of your research work for presentation as posters.

The posters will be on display either on Friday or Saturday according to their topics, and poster sessions will allow for ample opportunities to discuss your research results with other interested toxicologists. A small number of most promising abstracts will also be selected by the organizers to be presented in oral sessions.

Submissions for poster abstracts are done on–line and you should therefore carefully read the submission instructions before you start with the procedure of abstract submission.

For the text of your abstract you will first have to create a specific file on your computer in MS Word or a compatible text system. You can write your abstract text into this file with the following restrictions: Please use a common font, such as Times New Roman, with font size 12. Maximum acceptable length is 250 words, and no graphs, pictures or tables are allowed. Any (absolutely essential) references are to be given within the text, and not as a separate reference list. Submitters of non-English mother tongue are strongly advised to let the text be checked by a person with excellent mastering of the English language. You should then save this text on the hard disk of your computer.

When you consider the text of your abstract as final you may then proceed to the submission procedure.

Due to the size of the poster boards your poster may not exceed 100 cm in width and 140 cm in height (portrait format). Materials for mounting the posters will be available at the poster areas. Posters will be placed according to the numbering provided at acceptance and the respective numbering on the boards. Posters will have to be mounted between 08.00 and 08.30 in the morning and will have to be removed after 18.00 in the evening. During the poster viewing period, the presenting author and/or co-authors are asked to be present at the poster in order to be available for questions and discussions.

Posters should be divided into sections like a published paper. Font size on the final poster should be large enough to enable reading from a certain distance. It may also be advantageous to have a number of hard copies of the poster available for distribution.


• Know the time and location of your session. Make sure you know how to get to the meeting room where your session is held.

• Arrive to the room 10 minutes before the start of the session and introduce yourself to the session chair.

• A laptop, projector, and screen will be available in the session room. Presenters are not allowed to use their own laptop which will help eliminate unnecessary wasting of time between presentations except in special circumstances.

• Create your presentation using MS PowerPoint or Adobe PDF formats and save it onto a USB drive. Bring the USB drive to the session and upload the presentation to the laptop in the session room at least 10 minutes before the start time of your session. You can also bring it earlier during the coffee/lunch breaks of any days before your presentation.
