  • ALL PRESENTING AUTHORS MUST REGISTER AS DELEGATES WITHOUT EXCEPTION and the submission of an abstract serves as confirmation of the presenter’s availability to attend and pay for being at the Conference.

  • All abstracts will be acknowledged via the online system. If you have not had a confirmation of receipt within 7 days of your submission, please contact us.

  • Instructions on the timings and duration of oral presentations and the format of posters will be given in the result correspondence. If you have not received a result by the end of July 2023, please contact us. If an abstract cannot be presented at the Conference, the Secretariat must be notified in writing in advance to avoid compromise to the professionalism of the event.
