Successfully submitted abstracts will be acknowledged with an electronic receipt including an abstract reference number, which should be quoted in all correspondence. Allow at least 2 hours for your receipt to be returned to you.

Once the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must register for the meeting and present the paper at the event.

Abstracts of all accepted contributions will be included within online secure abstract system which will be distributed to all registered meeting participants prior to the event.

For revisions or queries regarding papers already submitted:
If you do not receive acknowledgement for your abstract submission or you wish to make any essential revisions to an abstract already submitted, please DO NOT RESUBMIT your abstract, as this may lead to duplication. Please email (Please do not email credit card information under any circumstances) with details of any revisions or queries. Please quote your reference number if you have one.
