The following guidelines address key factors that the Scientific Committee considers when reviewing abstracts. Attention to these details will assist the Committee in making their decision.

  1. Abstracts must be in English.
  2. The maximum number of words in the abstract body is 350.
  3. Previously published materials may be submitted for consideration, however you must include date and name of publication.
  4. Up to four abstracts may be uploaded for Symposia and Invited Symposia submissions.
  5. Authors may select their presentation type preference, but the Scientific Committee will make the final decision after review. Abstracts submitted -but not selected- for Free/ Oral Communication will automatically be considered for Poster presentation.
  6. All abstract presenters will be required to register for the symposium, and pay all registration and travel costs (unless otherwise specified).

Abstracts received after the above deadlines will not be considered for review. To submit your abstract, please complete all relevant information. It is the author's responsibility to submit a correctly edited and accurate abstract. Any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author.
