Call for Papers

The 3rd International Electronic Conference on Metabolomics will be held from 15-30 November 2018 in an online environment. The objective of this event is to bring researchers working in the field onto a common platform where they can present and discuss their recent research without the need to travel. All proceedings will be held online at https://sciforum.net/conference/iecm-3.

Time Schedule

  • Abstract Submission: 25 Sep. 2018
  • Acceptance Notification: 1 Oct. 2018
  • Presentation Submission: 5 Nov. 2018
  • Conference Open: 15 - 30 Nov. 2018

The Conference will cover a wide range of topics in metabolomics. A non exhaustive list of that will be considered comprises:

  • Section A: Advanced Metabolomics and Data Analysis Approaches
  • Section B: Identification of Unknowns
  • Section C: Precision Nutrition and Food Specific Profiles
  • Section D: Microbiota and Metabolomics
  • Section E: Pathway Mapping and Fluxomics
The 3rd International Electronic Conference on Metabolomics is free of charge for contributors and visitors. It is a good way for scholars to share ideas online without time and space barriers. Authors are invited to provide a short abstract online at http://www.sciforum.net/login from now until 25 September 2018. Acceptance of the abstract will be determined by 1 October 2018. Author(s) will be asked to present their work (in English) in the form of a slide show (or a video) using the PPT template provided by the conference (see Instructions for Authors). For accepted abstracts, the full paper needs to be submitted by 5 November. All accepted presentations will be displayed on the internet, at https://sciforum.net/conference/iecm-3, from 15–30 November 2018.
Authors are welcome to submit the extended version of their work for consideration and publication in a Special Issue of Metabolites. 20% discount is offered for all the authors participating in this conference. The scientific committee will consider all presentations and invite authors of the most outstanding work presented at the conference to publish free of charge in the Metabolites Special Issue.

The Scientific Committee looks forward to receiving contributions in response to this call, and will be glad to provide any further information to interested parties. Questions may be addressed to the chairman, Prof. Peter Meikle, Dr. Thusitha W. Rupasinghe, Prof. Susan Sumner, Dr. Katja Dettmer-Wilde, or the conference secretary at iecm@mdpi.com or metabolites@mdpi.com.

Instructions for Authors

Submission
Submissions should be done by the authors online by registering with www.sciforum.net, and using the "Start New Submission" function once logged into system.
  1. Researchers interested in attending the conference must submit the abstract, on this website and no later than 25 September 2018.
  2. The Conference Committee will pre-evaluate, based on the submitted abstract, whether a contribution from the author fits in the scope of The 3rd International Electronic Conference on Metabolomics. All authors will be notified by 1 October 2018 about the acceptance of their abstract.
  3. After the abstract is accepted by the Scientific Committee, the authors will be invited to prepare a full description of their work preferably under the form of a PowerPoint and/or video presentation, and to upload it before 5 November 2018 to ensure final check.
  4. The presentations will be accessible on https://sciforum.net/conference/iecm-3 during the conference time.
  5. After the conference, the authors are also welcome to submit an extended version of the proceeding papers to the Metabolites Special Issue with 20% discount of the APC charges.
Presentation Slides

Authors are encouraged to prepare a power point presentation using the template provided by the Conference (see download below). Slides will be displayed directly in the website using Sciforum.net's proprietary slides viewer. They can be prepared in the same way as for any traditional conference where research results can be presented. Slides should be converted to the PDF format before submission so that our process can easily and automatically convert them for online displaying.

Video Presentations
Authors are also welcome to submit video presentations. If you are interested in submitting, please contact the conference organizer (iecm@mdpi.com or verna.zheng@mdpi.com) to get to know more about the procedure.

Tips for authors: If you would like to prepare a video (15-20 minutes) based on your PPT presentation, you may use the "record slide" function in the PowerPoint. After recording, you can save the file as type: MPEG-4 Viedo (*.mp4).
Potential Conflicts of Interest

It is the authors' responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research. If there is no conflict, please state here "The authors declare no conflict of interest." This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. Financial support for the study must be fully disclosed under "Acknowledgments" section. It is the authors' responsibility to identify and declare any personal circumstances or interests that may be perceived as inappropriately influencing the representation or interpretation of clinical research.

Copyright

MDPI AG, the publisher of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their research works. Hence, by submitting a contribution to this conference, the authors retain the copyright of their contribution, but they grant MDPI AG the non-exclusive right to publish this contribution online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means the authors can easily submit their contribution to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).

Keynote Speakers


Monash University (Parkville campus), Victoria 3052, Australia

Biography: Dr Darren Creek is a Senior Lecturer and NHMRC Career Development Fellow at the Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and is Director of the Metabolomics Node of the Monash Proteomics and Metabolomics Facility. He completed his PhD at Monash University in 2007, and performed post-doctoral research in Uganda, Scotland and Australia working on antimalarial drug discovery and clinical trials, before focusing on metabolomics studies of tropical parasites. He developed several novel analytical methods and software tools for the metabolomics field, and discovered novel pathways and drug mechanisms in protozoan parasites. Dr Creek’s laboratory currently uses metabolomics and proteomics to understand mechanisms of drug action and resistance for infectious diseases, with a major focus on African trypanosomiasis and malaria. In 10 years since completion of his PhD, Darren has over 75 publications, 10 grants and fellowships from NHMRC, ARC and NIH, and was recently a Director of the International Metabolomics Society.
