In order to join the symposium, Please fill the registration form on the Registration page.


The symposium will begin on May 18, 2016. Do not miss that great event!


The Symposium will be at the Hecht auditorium in the University of Haifa, refer to Venue page for more information.



The full abstract book of the symposium is available here


You may submit a poster abstract at any time after your registration and until the deadline of May 2, 2016. We highly encourage students to present posters in order to share their current research and elicit discussion. Prizes will be awarded for the best posters.

The poster abstracts will be evaluated by the members of the poster committee. Each abstract will be evaluated based on importance of the research topic, innovation, and appropriateness of the research methods. The best abstracts would be nominated for the final competition. During the symposium, judges from the poster committee will evaluate the posters in terms of clarity, aesthetics, ability of the student to explain their research and answer questions.

Poster abstracts are limited to 2000 characters of plain text. Please provide a title, a list of authors and affiliation, keywords, and the abstract itself, in the form below.

Please bring standard-sized posters, width up to 90 cm, height up to 120 cm.
Tape for mounting the posters or pins will be supplied.

Abstract submission is now closed
