Abstract Submission

Register online. 
Only registered participants are eligible to submit an abstract. Abstracts can only be submitted online via the link provided after registration.

Abstract submission instructions:
Browsers: Our system only supports Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
Abstract length: The maximum limit is 2000 characters (ca. 200 words)(spaces included).
Co-authors: Please enter your co-authors correctly via the system by adding accounts with their institution and DO NOT copy-paste them into the body of the abstract text, as they will not be indexed in the abstract book. 
Text only: Please note that the abstract book will show a text-only version of your abstract, so all style commands will be stripped once submitted. However, sometimes copy-pasting the text may still include hidden formatting counting towards the limit of 2000 characters.
If you are copy-pasting the text make sure that you save it previously as text only to strip off any formatting.
Symbols: To include special symbols use the online text editor. 
Capitalisation: Do not fully capitalise abstract titles or names. Also do not use only small caps for names.

Abstract selection:
When submitting your abstract you can select to apply for an oral or poster presentation. A selection process will take place with the results announced approximately 3 weeks after the abstract submission deadline.

Availability of abstracts prior to the meeting:
Please be aware that a pdf file containing all abstracts may be sent out to all delegates a few days prior to the meeting. (depending on organisers' decision, not on delegates request)
For meetings where an app is present, abstracts will be made available only to delegates via the app a few days prior to the meeting.

For more details about abstract submission, oral presentations and poster sessions please refer to the FAQ page.
