Abstract submission

General Instructions for Submission

Each participant can submit a maximum of one abstract.
The official language of the meeting is English.

Before submitting an abstract to the meeting, registration of the first author is strictly mandatory.

Abstracts should be submitted via the SPQ registration site: the first author will receive an email with the access key and his/her personal access to the Participant’s Area. There, he/she will be able to submit the abstract or edit the existing one. During submission, the participant will have the opportunity to indicate the remaining co-authors of the research work and select type of intended presentation (Oral or Poster). Decision between poster and oral communications will be made by the Scientific Committee upon evaluation of all submitted abstracts.

Please note:
If the participant does not receive an email confirming the submission of the abstract, or his/her personal access key, he/she should confirm in the spam e-mail box.
For problems the participant should contact the Secretariat.

Abstract Guide

The abstract, in English, will only be considered if the standards are strictly followed. The abstract must not exceed one A4 page. A template (in Word format) is provided.

Please note:
Modifications to the template will result in a dismissal of the submission as a communication.

Accepted abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts which will be distributed in Electronic format (PDF) during the event (only abstracts of registered participants will be included).
