Deadline was on 27 July

 

Late abstract submission is now closed. Successful late abstracts will be included in the conference abstract book. Travel grants, possibility to be selected for oral presentation and the early registration rates were only available to those submitting abstracts by 8 June. Confirmation of acceptance for late abstracts have been sent out. Please note: the presenting author is required to attend conference - you can register here.

If we do not hear from you by Friday 26 August 14:00 CEST,  it will be presumed you are no longer coming and your abstract will be deleted.

First round abstract submission: Participants who submitted an abstract by 23:59 CEST on 8 June and whose abstracts are accepted, are eligible for the early registration fee. Upon confirmation of acceptance, participants will receive a special booking code to be entered in the registration system to ensure the early rate is applied. These confirmations were sent out mid-July.

Please use the same e-mail address when registering as a participant and when submitting an abstract.

Abstract preparation

  • All abstracts must be submitted in English, via the online abstract submission system only. Abstracts sent by e-mail will NOT be accepted.
  • Abstracts will be selected based on their scientific merit and the quality and novelty of data presented; it is therefore essential that you clearly and succinctly describe aims, procedures, major findings, and the significance of the research reported. Abstracts containing insufficient information for review will be rejected.
  • Abstracts MAY NOT:
    • advertise a commercial product
    • contain a list of literature references, or acknowledgements of financial or other support
    • include graphics or tables
    • use, or depend on, character formatting such as bold, italics, superscript, symbol fonts.
  • Abstracts MUST:
    • be submitted in their final state and will be reproduced directly from the online submission – any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific data will appear in print as submitted
    • include the title (max. 200 characters incl. spaces, avoiding ALL CAP spelling)
    • be structured in three single-paragraph sections (Background max. 500 characters incl. spaces, Observations max. 1,200 characters incl. spaces, Conclusions max. 300 characters incl. spaces)
    • be submitted with the agreement of all listed authors
