The registration formular will ask you to fill in the following information:

  • Project participants information (name, student number, T-shirt size etc.)
  • Category of the project
  • Abstract

All these informations - including the abstract (!) can be updated until the deadline.

Which categories exist and which category does my project belong in?

There are 4 categories based on your level of studies:

Bachelor Course
Bachelor Final Project

Furthermore you will have to choose which sustainable category(SDG) your project fits in. This will not influence the assessment for your project.

Read more about categories here.

What should my abstract look like? 
Your abstract MUST follow the abstract template (find it here). Your abstract must be written in English. To find inspiration for your abstract, you may look in the book of abstracts from 2017. OBS It is very important that you write directly in the template, and do not change font, layout etc.

Do everyone in my group have to upload the abstract.
No. It is okay for just one of you to upload the abstract as long as the rest of the members in the group point out who will upload it.

I have a poster for my presentation - how can i print it?

You are responsible for any material you would like to bring to the conference. DTU has poster printing facilities at the Library where the conference is held, as well as in building 414 and 116. We recommend you to print good time ahead of the conference, and to find a fellow student to help you.
