FAQ

What is the blog about?

With this blog we would like to raise awareness of our upcoming conference and the interesting topics it will cover. We also hope to spark and share relevant ideas and projects among you, and to foster international exchange and collaborations.

Who can contribute?

Everybody is invited to contribute with an own post – whether you are an ICOM member or not (yet!), whether you live in one of the hosts countries or not, and whether you are a student or a koryphae!

What can I contribute?

Contributions should be related to the conference topics, but can take on any form: reports, ideas, papers or paper abstracts, art work, or current thinking.
Posts must be submitted in English, and we provide no proof reading.

How do I contribute?

The best way to contribute is to use this simple form (.doc, 6KB) or this little checklist (.pdf, 185 KB) and mail to one of our team members.

Will contributing affect the acceptance of my conference abstract?

No. Blog posts and abstracts are not related and need to be submitted separately (but you are very welcome to do both!). A selection of accepted abstracts will be published at the blog as the conference approaches. We also plan to publish the best posts in the conference proceedings. The authors will be contacted seperately and will have the option to revise the text before publishing.

Can I share blog posts?

We would love if you do! Please use our hashtag #DIM2017 and share away!
