Information for Authors

This year, the contributions to CURAC will be published in the Current Directions in Biomedical Engineering and will therefore be highly visible as an open access publication. Please submit your four-page, English-language contributions via the ConfTool. The formatting should follow the templates for Word  or LaTeX.

If you would like to present your work at CURAC but do not wish a publication, we encourage you to submit an "extended abstract" of max. four pages. Please note that the "extended abstracts" will only be used for peer review and will not be published.

For better planning in this uncertain time, we kindly ask you to register yourself and the working title of your contribution in the ConfTool as soon as possible (ideally already by 20.04.2020). The deadline for the submission of your contribution as a Word document or LaTeX project with all source data is the 15.05.2020. Due to the necessary lead time with the publisher we have little leeway to extend the deadline.

We also need your written consent for the publication of your contribution. Please fill out this form and upload it in a zip file together with your contribution to ConfTool when you submit your contribution.

If you have any questions, please contact
