Talks and posters

Abstracts are invited for slots for oral presentations lasting 45 minutes + 15 minutes of discussion. In addition, GLOW 36 will be holding a poster session. When submitting an abstract, the author(s) should indicate whether they wish to be considered for an oral presentation only or would also be willing to present a poster. Financial reimbursement will be limited to oral presentations.
20 papers will be selected for oral presentation and an additional 30 papers will be selected for the poster presentation.

Submission Guidelines

  • All abstracts (including abstracts for the workshops) must be submitted online through EasyChair.
The abstract deadline is November 15, 23:59 CET. Notifications of acceptance/rejection will be sent out on January 20. At most two submissions per author, at most one of which can be single-authored. The same abstract may not be submitted to both the Colloquium and a workshop.


  • Abstracts (for oral presentations and posters) must not exceed two A4 pages in length. This includes data and references. Submissions must be consistent with the following format:
  • 2.5 cm (1 inch) margins on all four sides. On A4 paper, these margins produce a 160mm x 247mm text box. Submitters whose computers are set up for other paper sizes should adjust their margins accordingly to produce a text box of this size. This is especially important for the legibility of the Spring Newsletter.
  • Font size no smaller than 12pt, with single line spacing; no more than 50 lines of text per page, including examples. Times New Roman.
  • Examples must be integrated throughout the text of the abstract, rather than collected at the end.
  • Nothing in the abstract, the title, or the name of the document should identify the author(s).
  • Only submissions in .pdf format will be accepted.

Additional note: Named abstracts and the Spring Newsletter

If your paper is accepted for presentation at GLOW 36, you will be asked to submit a non-anonymous version of your abstract for publication in the GLOW Spring Newsletter. In case any problems should arise, please contact the organizers ( and the Newsletter Editor ( It is particularly important for publication purposes that all non-standard (nonopen source) fonts in the named version of accepted abstracts be either properly embedded into the PDF file or else avoided altogether.
