  • Poster only – Posters will be displayed in the exhibition and catering area.
  • Poster + speed talk – Posters will be presented in conjunction with a 3 minute short presentation. These concise and efficient talks are intended to grab the attention of the audience and to convey key information

Abstracts will be considered for oral, poster only and poster + speed talk presentations; if the presenting author wants the abstract to be considered for an oral presentation, please indicate by ticking the relevant box. The programme committee will select oral presentations from the submitted abstracts based on relevance, novelty, quality, and fit to the symposiums' programme.

Abstract format

Please note all abstracts must be submitted electronically. When composing your abstract, please carefully follow the guidelines below.

Note that you should indicate your preferred presentation format and with which of the symposiums' themes listed above you think your abstract best aligns.

  • Maximum of 300 words.
  • A maximum of 2 references can be used.
  • Do not insert any tables or figures as your abstract will be as plain text, rather than an uploaded document.
  • Check spelling and grammar. Submitted material will be published in the symposiums' materials - the abstract should, therefore, contain no errors.
  • Standard scientific abbreviations may be used - non-standard abbreviations should be included in parenthesis after the first use of the full word.
  • Do not indent paragraphs.
  • Present sufficient data to support conclusions - it is unsatisfactory to use statements such as "data will be presented" or "results will be discussed".
