Abstract Submission

The Science Advisory Committee will review all abstracts, taking into consideration the author's preferred choice of presentation type.

Abstracts will be accepted for oral, poster or poster pitch presentation. The Advisory Committee reserves the right to decide on the final form of presentation, which implies that the final assignment to an oral or a poster presentation might not be consistent with the expressed preference of the submitter. While we make an effort to consider the preferred presenation type this can not be guaranteed - especially for oral presentations.

Abstract submission is now closed!
