Guidelines for abstract preparation

Online abstract submission form will be available from 15th June 2017. via the online Registration System for a specific Session. Please refer to the list of sessions and subtopics listed in the Scientific Program. The presenting author is expected to attend the meeting and is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission. Abstracts which do not comply with the guidelines will be returned directly to the contact author for correction before they can enter the reviewing process.

Guidelines for abstract submission

No more than 2 abstracts by the same presenting author can be submitted. Abstracts can be accepted either as poster, or as oral communication. Please choose at most 1 oral preference per presenting author. No more than one of several abstracts by the same presenting author can be considered for oral presentation. Please indicate the position of the presenting author in the author list (default is 1).

Reviewing process

Abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific organisers. The Scientific Organising Committee reserves the right to re-categorize the abstract (i.e. from oral to poster, and for a different Session). Due to limited space, acceptance of late poster abstracts received after the 31st December 2017 extended deadline will be decided on a first-come, first-served basis. Notification regarding the status of your abstract acceptance (oral, poster or rejected) will be sent to the contact author by mid-October 2017. Details on poster format and full presentation guidelines will be made available on the website. In the event that the contact author cannot attend and give the accepted presentation (oral or poster), then it is possible to designate an alternative presenting author attending the conference from the co-author list, and the presentation will be a poster presentation, otherwise the abstract will need to be withdrawn. Please contact the Conference Secretariat before 15th January 2018.
