Abstract Submissions are accepted only electronically by using the on-line submission system.
To start the submission, create a new account and make sure to give your valid email address. You can choose your own password. Please remember the password for future log in. Further instructions are given as you proceed with your submission.
We accept papers, posters, and data sessions. You can also submit a panel proposal, which should consist of at least three papers on a common theme. Besides the description of the panel, the panel organizer(s) should also provide names and the titles of the contributers. Each session lasts 90 minutes.
Authors will be notified of acceptance of their contributions and the type of presentation by February 28, 2019.
Accepted contributions will be presented either as oral presentations or posters according to the decision of the Scientific Committee. Acceptance of the abstract is subject to acceptance by the Scientific Committee and the Committee has all rights to accept or reject the abstract.
All accepted abstracts will be published electronically on the Conference app and the Conference webpages, subject to the author’s confirmation to present in the conference and registeration as a paid delegate. The accepted abstracts will be published as typed by the author, including any errors in grammar, spelling or scientific facts.
If you have any questions about the submission process, please contact the congress secretariat directly at email@example.com
Guidelines for Abstract Submission
The title should be typed in using small letters, title starting with a capital letter, and should not exceed 35 words. Do NOT type the full title in capital letters.
The title should clearly define the topic. Please note, if your abstract is a part of a panel, indicate the name of the panel before the abstract title e.g. "Panel name: Abstract Title". The contributions of the panel should be submitted individually.
Please indicate what type of abstract it is (oral, poster, panel or data session). You can only submit one abstract for each submission type as the first author.

In the affiliation field if an author has more than 1 affiliation please separate the affiliation with a comma (e.g. 1,2,3). Please do not add a space after the comma.
Body of the abstract
The maximum size of the abstract is 350 words. The 350 word limit does not include the title or author details of the abstract; the limit is for the actual text of the abstract.
