Guidelines

  • Abstracts must be submitted in English via the Oxford Abstract on-line submission system to the preferred session (please see session descriptions here). Preferred session is chosen in Oxford Abstract as part of the submission form from the dropdown menu.
  • The Oxford Abstract system will send an automatic confirmation message once the abstract has been successfully submitted.
  • Abstracts must be submitted the latest by the announced deadline (February 15th, 16:00 CET). Please note that we will not accept late submissions. Notification of acceptance/rejection will be given by the end of March 2022.
  • An abstract can be presented as an oral or poster presentation. Authors can indicate the preferred presentation type in the abstract submission. The Congress Program Committee will do its best to accommodate wishes, but reserves the right to decide upon presentation form. The scientific value of posters is equal to that of oral presentations.
  • Abstracts of presenting authors who have not registered and paid the registration fee by registration deadline, will not be included in the final programme.
  • The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract and all agree to submit prior to the actual submission.
