Submit an Abstract
Deadline for abstract submission: November 15th, 2021
Abstract acceptance notice by February 1st, 2022
The abstracts submitted will be reviewed by the scientific committee of the congress, which is composed of experts selected for their demonstrated knowledge of particular topics. Authors will be notified of the results of the review process by email.
If your paper is accepted, it will be assigned to either a lecture session (on-site participants only, pending pandemic restrictions) or a poster session in the form of either a poster displayed on-site (on-site participants) or a short video (on-site and virtual participants). Prepare your presentation accordingly, following the guidelines below. The author's request for an oral or poster presentation is taken into consideration, but the final decision to place a presentation in a lecture or a poster session rests with the evaluation committee.
Each accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors in-person at the congress site according to the published schedule, except for the short video available online. At least one of the authors must register for the congress before the author registration deadline. Failure to do so will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from both the conference program and the book of abstracts.
How to Proceed
Authors must submit their abstract online through the abstract submission system, according to the instructions given in the template:
- First step: Once your abstract is written according to the instructions given in the template, choose your preferred session and a second-choice one in the “Parallel Sessions” link under “Program” in the congress homepage.
- Second step: Click on the “Submit your abstract” link at the bottom of this page. This will take you to a specific “Abstract submission” page: follow the instructions on this page until you reach the “Submit” button. You will be requested to select one parallel session, for either oral presentation (on-site) or poster presentation (displayed on-site or short video).
- Third step: You will receive an automated email to confirm that we have received your abstract. Follow the instructions in this email and the link that will enable you to access your file and author entry forms at any time before the deadline. The secretariat will process your request and send you an official confirmation email when your submission is validated. If you have not received a confirmation in the following 5 days, please contact us.
- Fourth step: Following this process, the scientific committee of the congress will review your abstract and inform you whether or not it is accepted, in which session, with or without modifications, and as an oral presentation (on-site) or a poster (displayed on-site or short video).
