This CERN Indico site is used to manage the abstracts, presentations and archive the workshop contributions since 2008. You need to have a CERN Indico account to submit an abstract. In case you do not have it yet, please create a CERN light-weight account, which will work well for the purpose.
After clicking "Submit new abstract" you will be directed to CERN Single Sign-On page. At the very bottom click "Create/Check your account", which will lead you to the Account management page. In the right, column click "Register an account" and follow the process. Now you are good to submit an abstract.
In case of difficulties please contact daniel.valuch@cern.ch.

The call for abstracts is closed.
