Participants are requested to submit abstracts online to the Congress Secretariat from Monday, August 27, 2018 until the extended deadline on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, 23:59 CET+1. Please note that abstracts can only be submitted online.
During the submission process, authors may indicate their preferred presentation type (oral or poster presentation). The final decision in regards to the presentation type, however, will be taken by the Scientific Committee. Submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author to present at the congress if accepted.
Abstracts may be submitted in English only. Please make sure that special characters and symbols are inserted correctly through the toolbar provided. Authors will be able to draft the abstracts online and may return to the site to edit the texts of the abstracts if necessary. Authors are free to finalise their texts and submit their abstracts at any time before.

Notification of acceptance and information regarding presentations will be forwarded to the authors immediately after the reviewing process by e-mail the latest by January 25, 2019. If an abstract is accepted it is mandatory for the presenting author to attend the congress.
Modalities of oral and poster presentations will be sent with the notification of acceptance. Accepted posters will be accessible to delegates in the poster exhibition area.
For an abstract to be included in the final scientific programme, it is mandatory for the presenting author to register for the congress and to settle payment as soon as the notification of abstract acceptance is received and not later than Thursday, February 28, 2019.
