Abstract Presentation Format
The presentation format for each abstract will be determined by the Scientific Program Committee based on the quality of the submission. Potential types of presentations are either (1) Oral Presentation during Scientific Symposia or (2) Poster Presentation during Poster Sessions. Abstracts that are not selected by the Scientific Program Committee for presentation may be chosen for publication only.
If your poster is selected for the poster presentation, you may use this year's poster sponsorship. You will then receive your printed poster (format 90x125 cm) directly at the congress. More details will be sent to presenting authors in due time.
Abstracts will be accepted via the online abstract submission system only. Abstract submission will be possible from April 1 until June 15, 2018. Submissions received after this deadline will not be considered.
A limited number of poster authors will have the opportunity to present a two minutes poster pitch during the main program sessions. You can register your interest in the poster pitch with your abstract submission. You will be notified by the Scientific Program Committee if you have been assigned a time-slot to present a poster pitch. The aim of a poster pitch is deliver your key message orally so that people come and see your poster and discuss your work. You will be allowed to show one slide addressing the following topics: (1) Poster title, poster number, (2) rationale for research question, (3) key results, (4) conclusion.
A limited number of awards will be granted to high-quality abstracts during the opening ceremony of the congress.
