Call for Abstracts

Suggestions:  Applicants are invited to share their scientific results at the event as a poster, by first submiting an abstract with their application. In addition to a small number of short talks that will be selected from submitted abstracts, we will organize flash presentations for the most interesting posters. Posters will be displayed on poster boards in a dedicated area at the venue, and should not exceed 90 cm (width) × 120 cm (length).

Abstracts must be submitted via the online participant portal before the deadline of 15th of June 2018.

Accepted abstracts will be searchable on the Congress website around the time of the event, and collated in an abstract book that will be provided as a pdf file.
