Upon submitting of your abstract an e-mail including the "Abstract Number" and "Abstract Title" will be sent to the contact author who has submitted the abstract.

Evaluation Process and Acceptance Letters

All submitted abstracts will be scored by members of the Scientific Committee following which the draft program will be drawn up. While scientific merit is the most important factor in evaluating an abstract, the program will also take into account other factors such as the topic, geographic representation etc.

Acceptance letters will be sent by Monday, 30 July 2018 via e-mail. Relevant information about your abstract's presentation including the presentation date, time, venue, presentation number will be included in the acceptance letters.

Abstracts submitted by presenting authors who do not register for the conference and do not complete the payment by this deadline will be removed from the final program and will not be published in the Conference Abstract E-Book.
