Q: If I submit an abstract do I have to attend the conference?
A: All accepted abstracts are scheduled in the scientific program either as oral or poster presentations. It is expected that at least one author of the abstract attend the meeting to present the work and answer questions. Only abstracts of registered participants will be scheduled in the Scientific Program.
Q: I have submitted an abstract, when will I know if it has been accepted?
A: Only after all abstracts have been reviewed by the Scientific Committee will notifications be sent to the abstract submitters. Every effort is made to conclude this process within one month after the abstract submission deadline. Please refer to the key dates listed on the homepage.
Q: How can I make changes to an abstract I have already submitted?
A: You may enter the Abstract Submission System with your username and password and make changes to your abstract until the submission deadline date. No abstract changes will be accepted after this date. You are welcome to bring an updated poster to the meeting with you.
