On a separate line put the full address of the principal investigator (including the name of the institution, the name of the laboratory, the street, the postal code, the city, the country, the e-mail address), other institutions can be abbreviated. The text of the abstract will follow after one line spacing.

DO NOT use columns or sections' breaking in your text. Try also to avoid special signs in your text (e.g. greek letters or mathematical symbols), but in case you need to put them, please be sure they are clearly evident in the pdf copy and put a remind of their presence in the message accompaning the transmission of the file.

You can use references in your abstract, for homogeneity, please use the following rules:

in the text, the references shoud be indicated by numbers in square brackets. After the text of your abstract put, on a separate line, Reference List (in capital and bold, size 10). In the reference list they should be numbered and arranged in alphabetical order. Please use size 10 and spacing 1 for the reference list.

Graphs, graytone (not color) pictures and tables can be embedded in the electronic document.

On a separate page please provide (on separate lines) the title of your communication, the names of authors, their full addresses, and a list of 5 keywords.
