Q: If I submit an abstract do I have to attend the conference?
A: All accepted abstracts are scheduled in the Scientific Program as Poster or Oral presentations. It is expected that at least one author of the abstract attends the meeting to present the work and answer questions. Only abstracts of registered participants will be scheduled in the Scientific Program.
Q: I have submitted an abstract, when will I know if it has been accepted?
A: Only after all abstracts have been reviewed by the Scientific Committee will notifications be sent to the abstract submitters. Every effort is made to conclude this process within one month after the abstract submission deadline. Please refer to the Key Dates.
Q: How can I make changes to an abstract I have already submitted?
A: You may enter the Abstract Submission system with your username and password and make changes to your abstract until the submission deadline date. No abstract changes will be accepted after this date; however you are welcome to present more updated information as part of your poster at the conference.
Q: If my abstract is accepted, where will it be published?
A: Copies of your accepted and registered abstracts will be published on the conference website.
