call for abstracts

The submission for symposia proposals is now closed. Thanks to all submitters. Notifications of acceptance / rejection have been sent out beginning of March 2019.

Symposium speakers of accepted abstracts are asked to submit their abstracts until the 15 April 2019.

Each symposium is scheduled for 90 min and shall include four presentations and time for discussion at the end of the session. Submissions shall include a descriptive abstract, names of the chair and co-chair, names of speakers and titles of their presentation, and educational objectives as well as information about potential conflicts of interest; respective abstracts need only to be submitted after the symposium has been accepted.

All speakers must have agreed to participate prior to submission. All proposals will be reviewed by the Scientific Programme Committee and by the International Advisory Programme Committee with regard to quality of the content and relevance to the major topics of the conference. Symposia involving speakers from more than one European country will be given priority.

Authors of oral presentations or posters are invited to submit an abstract for contribution to the conference. Please mark the 15 April 2019 in your calendar for the submission.

All submissions will be reviewed by the Programme Committees and scheduled as oral or poster presentations. Accepted presentations will be grouped by topics into thematic oral sessions or thematic guided poster sessions in order to promote discussions.
