ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
YOU NEED TO HAVE REGISTERED TO THE CONGRESS IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT.
More than 50% of the programme is dedicated to selected abstracts because we want to ensure that the best and most current research is presented. A large panel of international moderators reviews abstracts so that every abstract receives at least 3 reviewer scores.
Abstract submission guidelines: Make sure your abstract is in, on time and in the right format by following these simple steps:
1: The Deadline for abstract submission is 31 July 2019.
2: Your abstract should be no more than 250 words and should be in English.
3: Keep your title concise and informative and only use capital letters for the beginning of a sentence or an acronym/name. DO NOT USE CAPITAL LETTERS FOR YOUR ENTIRE TITLE.
4: List all authors’ name in full and it is compulsory to identify a presenting author. Please note the email address supplied when you submit your abstract will be used for all correspondence pertaining to the abstract.
5: Addresses should be in the following format: Group, Department/Institute, Organisation, Town/City, Postcode/Zip, Country
