General Framework for Abstract Submission

  • The submission of abstracts is welcome and highly appreciated.
  • Abstracts should be submitted via the available link on the conference website and on Wednesday September 1, 2021 (23:59 CEST) at the latest.
  • All correspondence concerning the abstract will be sent to the submitting author/co-author who is responsible for informing any other co-author(s) of the status of the abstract.
  • All submitted abstracts that fulfill the submission criteria, will be screened and considered for presentation by reviewers, appointed by the Scientific Committee, which will send a notification regarding acceptance or rejection of abstracts to the submitting author via email.
  • We do not accept non-authors to present, only authors/co-authors.
