Language Setting of Your Keyboard

The keyboard configuration of computers in non-Western countries often causes problems with the printing of the abstracts when special non-Western characters have been used. To avoid these problems you need to change the language setting of your computer. This can be done by done opening "Start", then "Settings", then "Control Panel" and then choosing "Keyboard". Once in the menu, set the language of your computer to English (United States) or US (International). Next, open MS Word (or the word processing software you are using) and set the font type to Arial - Western. In the preparation of your abstract, if you require certain special characters that are not available. (e.g. '±', '®', 'µ') use the insert symbol feature (special characters). To do this,select Arial as the font (Unicoded, if possible), then select the required character, and copy and paste the symbol into the text of the abstract. If a special character is still not available, describe the character, e.g. 'alpha'. Authors who do not want to make use of the special character feature should put their references between brackets.

Browser font preference

Before submitting your abstract, select Unicode as the preferred font. If Unicode is not available, please select Western.


The Organizing Committee will reward the participants who submit the abstract with below mentioned awards:
● The Best 3.000 TL
