ABSTRACT SUBMISSION PROCESS

When you finish the submission process, you should receive an acknowledgement e-mail with your reference number. If you do not receive this, please, contact the scientific secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
You will be able to modify your abstract before the submission deadline through the online submission form. To gain access to your previous submission you must use your email and the password you should have received in the acknowledgement email received after the submission.
All submissions are, independent of format, subjected to a peer-review process to secure high quality.
A notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the submitter (contact person) only. It is the responsibility of the submitter to notify other authors. Notification to the authors is expected from May 10th.
If the abstract is accepted the presenting author needs to be registered on due date to confirm participation in the programme and to attend the congress to present the contribution. Otherwise, the contribution will be withdrawn from the Congress programme.
