Type of Presentation

Depending on your speaker status, please select the type of presentation either invited speaker, oral presentation or poster presentation at the time of abstract submission. Your preference will be considered but cannot be guaranteed. If you want to present in the Japanese oral session (“NMR Tou-ron-kai”), please select “Japanese Session”.

Poster sessions will be held using Remo, an interactive virtual event platform. On August 25th, we set up a special poster slot to make it easier for presenters staying in Europe to give poster presentations without being affected by the time difference.

Please describe the reason why your presentation should be considered for an oral presentation and list recent publications on the topic (if they exist).

  1. Solution NMR: New Methods
  2. Solution NMR: Biological Applications
  3. Solution NMR: Metabolomics
