August 31st was the last day in which authors could submit their abstracts for both poster and oral presentations. We have received a total of 100 abstracts. We thank you for your positive response and professional work to enhance the quality of our conference!

Authors will be informed about the acceptance of their abstract by the Scientific Committee by e-mail before 17th September 2018 (oral) and 5th October 2018 (poster).

We would like to remind you several points that will follow:

  1. You may submit an abstract for review before you have paid the conference registration fee. However any payment, if due, has to be received on 10th October 2018 at the latest, otherwise contribution(s) will not be included in the book of abstracts and conference programme.
  2. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to assign a presentation to another scientifically relevant session.

Following its review, a submission for an oral presentation may be changed into a poster presentation in order to be accepted and included in the programme.

  1. If you want to withdraw an abstract already submitted, please notify us in writing as quickly as possible, and no later than 10th October 2018, at stating the reasons for your withdrawal.
  2. The text of the abstract, along with the authors’ names and affiliations will be published on the conference website and in the book of abstracts, and the author understands that this will not raise any copyright issues.
