Notes for authors

Conference language
Please note that, with few exceptions, the conference language is English and you are requested to submit your abstract in English.

Abstract submission and design

Submit your abstract exclusively online via our congress portal. When you submit your abstract, you will receive an e-mail with your reference code, which must be included in further correspondence. After the decision of the scientific committee, we will inform you whether your contribution will be accepted or rededicated as a poster.​

Abstracts are accepted in PDF format. Would you also like to submit graphics? Please integrate them directly into your abstract. Please note the long transmission times for large files. Files should not be larger than 10 MB. 


The scientific committee will not make any revisions or corrections to your abstract. It is therefore important for the presentation of all abstracts to comply with the specified guidelines
