Important: The cost of the banquet is included in the attendee’s registration fee. Nevertheless, you still need to register for it. Additional banquet guest tickets may be purchased for EUR 70 online. Please note that the caterer for the conference banquet needs to know the exact number of participants well in advance of the event. Therefore, only a very limited number of tickets will available after September 28. Please register in time!

Lunches are not included in the registration fee. There are various dining options on campus, including a main cafeteria “Mensa”, a bistro and a cafeteria in direct vicinity to the conference rooms, another bistro “Q-West” on campus and further places to eat can be found in the shopping center (Uni-Center) next to the university subway station.

Please note: There will be no reimbursement of your registration fee!

The on-site registration fees are:
Regular Attendee: EUR 600
Retired: EUR 300
Student: EUR 300
Guest Banquet Ticket: EUR 70

Abstract submission

Contributed papers may be given orally in a 15-minute timeslot (12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes for questions) or as a poster. The poster size is Din A0: 84,1 x 118,9 cm. The orientation of the poster should be portrait.
For either mode, authors must submit an abstract, which briefly but accurately describes new scientific work.

Abstracts could be submitted through our online portal at for contributed and for invited speakers.

To submit an abstract, you must (1) use the GEC sorting category list when submitting (see sorting categories below), (2) know the correct ordering of authors and collaborators, and (3) submit abstract content. The website will ask you for an APS membership number. If you are not an APS member you can type “GEC abstract” in the member ID box when submitting.

For general Abstract Submission information click here.

The webpage will guide you through the submission process. We strongly recommend that you proofread your formatted abstract before submission. This is done by logging onto and selecting the meeting “TEST.” When you are ready to submit your abstract, select the GEC2016 meeting button. Submit your abstract information when prompted. If you encounter problems during the abstract submission process, please contact the APS Abstract Helpline.

If necessary you can still withdraw online by going to this page and entering your log number to withdraw your abstract.

Oral and poster session sorting categories

The Executive Committee solicits contributed oral and poster presentations on the wide range of topics typically addressed at the GEC. The abstract sorting categories are listed below; but you may always contact an Executive Committee member for assistance if you have difficulty choosing the category which best fits your work.

Guidelines for Scientific Presentations

James Callen, University of Wisconsin, has developed some useful materials for preparing effective scientific presentations. The Program Committee urges all attendees to prepare clear and effective presentations. James Callen’s website, entitled “Materials for Preparing Effective Scientific Talks, Posters” is available online as pdf documents at
