Call for Abstracts
All participants are invited to submit abstracts for scientific communications.
The submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed for acceptance by the Scientific Committe and, out of the submitted proposals, 27 Oral Communications will be selected. The other accepted abstracts will get the opportunity to be presented as posters.
OC Submission deadline: February 26, 2019
Poster Submission deadline: April 24, 2019
Abstract acceptance will be notified to all authors by the Symposium Secretariat by end of March.
Your registration is required to access the abstract submission tool, but payment is not mandatory at this stage. However, accepted summaries will be published in the Book of Abstracts of the Symposium only after full payment of the registration fee.
You will always receive an acknowledgement of your abstract submission. If this doesn't occur, please contact us at email@example.com or call to make sure that we have received your abstract.
In order to submit your abstract, select “Abstract submission” under the “Registration” menu. Log in using your registration number (received upon registration) as well as your e-mail address. Select “Abstract Submission” and “Add”.

Click on “PDF preview” to check the result. Please note that the abstract should be one page maximum. Therefore, only the first page on the preview will be taken into account. If the preview shows more than one page, please adapt your page accordingly so that it fits into one page.
You can update your abstract if necessary and submit/edit or preview as many times as needed.
The pdf will be inserted in the book of abstract as shown on the preview. Please be aware that it is your responsibility to fill in all data correctly and completely. Any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author.
You can have access to your poster via the website and make changes to it, until submission deadline, by using your registration number and email address as indicated at registration.

Poster size is A0 - nominally 90 cm wide and 120 cm high, in portrait format (no landscape). A poster number will be assigned to each abstract and will be announced to the first author.
