of abstracts have been received where the author has clearly not read
the Instructions! In particular, please ensure the following:
Be sure to state which Meeting Theme to which you think your Abstract
Be sure to suggest a Reviewer and their contact information.
Be sure to add ALL co-authors with appropriate full details at the
time of submitting the abstract into the system.

We have been asked why it is so important to submit abstracts
correctly and why they will be peer reviewed. The reason is simple -
the Abstracts will be published and correct presentation is seen as
important in our current drive to make the TDWG a high profile,
