We welcome abstracts for short* (approx. 20 minutes) oral presentations and for electronic posters. We also welcome suggestions/proposals for workshops recognising that there will be limited numbers of these possible due to space and time constraints.
*The exact length of oral presentations will be made clear to you at the time of acceptance and will depend upon the number of accepted oral presentations. Detailed instructions on how electronic posters should be presented will also be provided at the time of abstract acceptance.
Please note ALL abstracts must be submitted electronically. When composing your abstract, carefully follow the guidelines and layout below. Note that you should indicate your preferred presentation format and with which of the conference sub-themes listed above you think your abstract best aligns.
