Days of Meeting:
Ceremony, Plenary Lecture
The program and the abstracts should be published in
the Balkan Journal of Clinical Laboratory
(BCLF). This would be one of the issues of BJCL. A selection of presentations would provide material
for the other 3 issues of the Journal, thus satisfying the requirements for inclusion in the Current Contents and Science Citations Index (4 issues a year, to be verified).
The Program should list all authors, title of abstract,
affiliations of authors and the abstract itself. If no
abstract is submitted, as sometimes is done by senior lecturers,
the space of the text of the abstract should
be left blank, but all the details (author, title, affiliation)
should be given. This is common
practice in major congresses.
