Online Abstract Submission ...

The conference language is English. An expert panel of reviewers will decide upon the acceptance of the contributions based on the abstract. Therefore, the decision for each contribution to be accepted as poster or as oral presentation is at the discretion of the panel of reviewers. The Organising Committee will allocate the accepted oral contributions into 21 interdisciplinary sessions. Contributions of an interdisciplinary nature will be preferentially selected as oral presentation.

  • Abstracts do not comply with style guidelines, including excessive length
  • Abstracts contain inappropriate content
