Spring Meetings provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and information pertinent to the scientific community and to organize, plan, and review policies and procedures within the ICDD organization.

Social Event, Poster Session, and Reception:

Following the Plenary Session, members and guests are invited to spend the afternoon at our social event, poster session, and reception.
Our excursion this year will take us to historic West Chester to visit the American Helicopter Museum and Education Center (http://www.americanhelicopter.museum/).

Established in 1996, the American Helicopter Museum and Education Center is a nonprofit organization that collects, restores, and displays rotary-wing aircraft. As the nation’s premier helicopter museum, the museum displays over 35 civilian and military helicopters, autogiros, and convert-a-planes. Members and guests will have the opportunity to climb aboard several of the helicopters for a truly unique, hands-on experience. In addition, the tour will include a presentation on the history, science, and technology of vertical flight, as well as the connections of this industry to the Philadelphia region.

We will remain at the Museum for our annual poster session and reception.  Enjoy a glass of wine, network with fellow scientists and ICDD staff, and peruse the poster presentations. This year, we will once again ask members to vote for the ‘Best Poster.’ Authors of the three best posters will be invited to re-post their presentations at ICDD headquarters for display throughout meeting week.

Poster Session Information:

The Technical Committee Chair, Matteo Leoni, encourages members to submit posters or displays for the poster session.

Poster Guidelines
Poster boards are 40 inches high, 60 inches wide, and about 1/4 inch thick, comprised of foam board. Pins and Velcro will be available to attach your poster to the foam boards. Authors are asked to post their presentations approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of the session.

Guidelines for Preparing Abstracts
Abstracts will be published as-received on the ICDD web page and published in the journal of Powder Diffraction. If you do not want your abstract so published, please note your request in your e-mail message when you submit it. Abstracts must not exceed one page in length and must include the title, author(s), affiliation(s), and the text. To provide uniformity, it is recommended that abstracts be prepared in Microsoft® Word, according to the following guidelines:

Abstract Format

  • Paper Size: 8.5 x 11 inches; A4 paper must be formatted for 8.5 x 11 inches
  • Size: Entire abstract, including title, author(s), affiliation(s), and text, must fit into a maximum area of 15 cm (5.9") wide by 20 cm (7.9") high. Please allow a top margin of 3.8 cm (1.5") and 2.54 cm (1") margins on all other sides
  • Font: Times or Times New Roman, 12 point
  • Title: bold, centered, all uppercase (except where lowercase letters are needed for clarity)
  • Leave one blank line between the title and the author(s)
  •  Author(s) and affiliation(s): mixed upper and lowercase, centered; if there is more than one author, underline the presenting author's name
  • Leave two blank lines before beginning text
  • Text:
    • text should appear flush left; do not indent
    • use line spacing sufficiently large enough to allow the abstract to be read easily, including subscripts, superscripts and Greek letters
    • a blank line is recommended (space permitting) between new paragraphs

Submission
The preferred method of submitting your abstracts is in a PDF format via this ICDD submission form.

However, if you require an alternate method, please contact Eileen Jennings - E-mail: jennings@icdd.com or Tel: +610-325-9814.

Abstracts should be submitted no later than 7 March 2014.
