Important deadlines:

Abstract submission deadline: April 10, 2016

Please go to the Abstract Submission page to first create an author account. Following this you will be given the opportunity to download the Abstract Template. No editing of the abstracts will take place after acceptation, so please follow the style guideline! You will be asked to indicate a preference for either an oral or poster presentation and your choice of one or more session topics. The organizers reserve the right to change these selections (in which case you will be notified).

You may download the Abstract template also here in format .docx, .doc, or .odt.

Post-deadline abstracts, if of high interest, will be considered for a limited number of presentations (principally in poster format). 

Abstract acceptance notification: May 11, 2016

Early registration deadline: May 31, 2016

Please note: the pre-registration process (see below for details) needs to be concluded before June 6 in order to profit from the reduced early-registration fee.

Participants requiring a visa to enter France are kindly requested to inform the organizers in due time. Dietary preferences can be communicated during the registration procedure.


Registration takes places in two steps:

1) First you should pre-registrer here *)

2) Once your pre-registration has been validated (manually; normally within one working day but please allow a few days in exceptional cases), you will receive an email from <> with a link to the registration website and with subject “FLAIR2016 - Your pre-registration has been registred.” (note the spelling error …). Here you can complete the process, most notably by executing a payment by either credit card (preferred method) or bank transfer. You will receive an automatically generated invoice, either immediately following the credit card transaction, or after selecting the bank transfer option. Please be aware that your registration is not taken into account until payment has been received. Even if you pre-registered before the early-registration deadline, the late registration fee will be applied starting June 6 if you did not effect a successful payment by credit card or received the pro-forma invoice before then. All payments are final, no refunds can be made.

Note also that this registration procedure does not automatically create the account on this website necessary for the submission of a paper for an oral or poster presentation. In fact, the Paper Submission page will first ask you to log in or to create a submission account.


*) During the pre-registration you are asked to provide personal information. In the “You are” field you can indicate to what category of participant you reckon yourself: Researcher, Student, or a Representative of Industry or the Press. The non-obligatory field of “Contact Name” can be used to provide the name of your secretary or assistant. Some translations from French to English are awkward, such as “Tarification” for Category or Pricing …
