All participants are invited to register and submit abstracts of scientific communications which will be peer-reviewed for their acceptance. The abstracts of the accepted communications will be published in the book of abstracts distributed to all conference attendants.
Out of the submitted proposals, 9 keynote lectures and 45 oral communications will be selected. All other abstracts will get the opportunity to be presented as posters. Participants wishing to present an oral communication or a poster should submit abstracts using the abstract submission menu available on the website. The preference of oral and poster presentation should be indicated by the applicant during the submission process (please tick where appropriate on the form).
Remark for OC abstracts submission: To assist the scientific committee in selecting suitable Oral Communications, you can provide a You-Tube videolink of 'elevator pitch' that will support your abstract.
