In order that the scientific committee can manage a proper evaluation we hope that you follow the general rules for the abstract submission.

Abstracts should be structured using following headings: Background, Objectives, Methods, Results and Conclusions. Abstract must not exceed 2600 characters (including spaces) and must be written in English. All abstracts received will be evaluated by the scientific committee of the conference. Please fill in all required fields. Abstracts can be submitted for oral or poster presentations.

Abstracts must be sent through conference web pages. Last day for abstract submission is May 14, 2017.

At first round we will handle only one abstract / author. If we have space in the program, it is possible to have for example one oral and one poster presentation from one author.

First author is required to register and pay the registration fees according to the timetables of the conference registration. If your registration and payment have been not received by the given time, the presentation will be removed from the program and not included in the conference abstract book.
