Q: If I submit an abstract do I have to attend the Congress?

A: All accepted abstracts are scheduled in the scientific program either as oral or poster presentations. It is expected that at least one author of the abstract attend the Congress 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 will be made to conclude this process by the end of June, 2019.
