Call for Abstracts

At this stage we are planning a primarily in-person event, with some level of virtual attendance.  As a minimum will all look to allow some remote presentations and will offer remote viewing of a mix of live and recorded content.

If travel is restricted again due to COVID transmission, full virtual attendance will be available with remote co-facilitation, presentation, live and recorded watching of presentations – similar to COV.

There is no indication that travel will be restricted at present, we plan to launch virtual registration and confirm the virtual format in November 2022.

Abstract Submission Limits

1.  A maximum of two abstracts are permitted per individual presenter.
2.  The presenter does not necessarily need to be first author, but it must be the person who registers the abstract online.
3.  The 'oral-preferred' option can only be selected for one of the abstracts
4.   The 'poster only' option can be selected for one or two abstracts

Invited Symposia Presenters

A symposium chair may invite a delegate to present an oral or a poster in their symposium. In this case:

1. The invited presenter is still restricted to two abstracts (as above), but
2. The ‘Invited Presentation’ option may be selected for up to two abstracts.

Disclaimer: If a symposium is cancelled then invited presenters will no longer retain this status, however their presentation may be moved to another symposium as either an oral or poster at the discretion of the symposium chair. If a symposium is merged with another, then it is at the discretion of the subsequent symposium chairs whether they retain 'invited' status and whether their presentation is an oral or a poster
