Abstract Review and Notification

The Scientific Committee will review the abstracts according to the relevance to the session topic and select the most appropriate ones. All abstract submitters should be prepared to present the abstract as an oral or poster presentation.

Authors of abstracts selected for a poster presentation will be required to print (based on official dimensions) and set up their poster in a dedicated area at the conference venue. Each poster session will comprise guided poster tours per topic: two poster chairs per topic will walk along the posters together with the attendees of that particular poster session. The poster presenter is asked to join the guided poster tour and present his/her poster to the chairs and audience at the designated slot. For each poster, 1.5 minutes presentation and 1.5 minutes discussion time are foreseen. Poster chairs will rate the posters of their session and propose the top three ranked for overall poster prize selection.
