rest of abstracts will be presented in the poster session. Each poster will have 1.2 m x 1.2 m of
display space.

 Type single space using, if possible, Times New Roman 12-point font (preferred);
 Keep all material within a one-inch margin on all sides;
 The title should be typed in boldface (Title Case, 14- points) centered at the top of the page;
 Leave a double space between the title and the names of the author(s);
 The names of the authors should be typed in boldface in single space, followed by the addresses
of the authors in single space; underline the name of the presenting author;
 Leave a double space between the end of the addresses and the opening paragraphs;

Call for Exhibits
Companies conducting business related to the themes of AOTs-21 are invited to exhibit their products
and/or services. Exhibits will be displayed throughout the conferences in a central area near the
registration desks, coffee breaks, poster sessions and lecture rooms. The cost of an 8-ft x 10-ft
exhibiting space is $1,750.00US if payment is received on or before Tuesday, June 30, 2015, and
$2,000.00US if payment is received after that date. The exhibition fee includes two free registrations.
Please, reserve early, as space is limited, and will be served on a first come first serve basis.
Registration
The deadline for the early registration is Tuesday, June 30, 2015. The on-site registration for
the conference is scheduled for Sunday afternoon, November 15, 2015 between 2:00 7:00pm.
All registration fees are set in US dollars. The registration fees can be paid either by credit cards
(Visa, Master Card or American Express) or by “Encoded Checks” in US funds drawn on a US bank
account made payable to “Redox Technologies, Inc.” Payment made by Visa will be converted, at our
end, into their equivalents in US Dollars Using the exchange rate of Bank of Canada. Payments
made by a Master Card or an American Express Card will be converted, at our end, into their
equivalents in Canadian dollars using also the exchange rate of Bank of Canada. As a result,
depending on the fluctuation of the exchange rate and potential fees that your credit card financial
institution may apply for the conversion, payments by credit card may turn to be slightly higher
than the actual amount stated on the registration form. Participants are also allowed to pay by
cash for on-site registration only.
Meeting Site and Accommodation
AOTs-21 will be held at the Crowne Plaza of San Diego, California, USA. A block of rooms with discounted
conference rates has been reserved for the participants until Wednesday, October 28, 2015. The block
is reserved under Redox Technologies, Inc. The rate is $110US for a single-bed or double bed rooms.
