Registration and Abstract submission

If your attendance at the conference is dependent on the outcome of the selection process, please proceed to submit an abstract. Registration can be completed once the results have been announced.

If you wish to submit an abstract and attend the conference regardless of the outcome from the selection process, please submit an abstract and register. The same login details can be used for both processes.

When submitting your abstract, you can apply for an oral or poster presentation. A selection process will take place with the results announced 2-3 weeks after the abstract submission deadline.

The accepted abstracts will be published as typed by the author, including any errors in grammar, spelling, or scientific facts.
