Abstract submission is possible only after registering for the meeting and abstracts are accepted only after payment has been received. Authors are asked to submit a one-page abstract in English via this homepage. Each author may submit only one abstract.

The deadline for abstract submission is January 12, 2018.

Notification of acceptance of scientific contributions as oral or poster presentations will be sent shortly after the deadline. If your abstract has not been selected for a talk, it will be automatically scheduled for the poster session.

Invited lectures will be allocated 35 min plus 5 min for discussion. 20 min (including discussion) will be allocated for oral contributions selected from submitted abstracts.

Poster presentations will be an important part of the conference. Posters should be in DIN-A0 portrait format (i.e., about 84 cm x 119 cm). Each participant should present his or her poster in a 1-min poster flash on Monday, 05 March 2018. For this purpose, please bring a single PDF slide with you. All posters will be on display during the entire duration of the conference, so that there is ample time for discussion during the breaks.
