General guidelines

The conference will include themed symposia, short oral sessions, and poster presentations.  We invite you to submit abstracts for short oral and poster presentations and/or proposals to organize symposia.

Please see >Symposia> or >Posters and talks for instructions specific to each type of submission. 

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by members of the scientific committee, composed of TRF Committee members and the conference organizers.  We aim to send decisions by 1 June for symposia proposals and mid-June for posters & talks.

Abstracts will be published in Timing & Time Perception Reviews.
