Abstracts can be submitted for presentations and for posters.

Presentations will be 15 minutes, with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. There will be two dedicated poster sessions and one introductory session with poster flash talks. In addition, posters will be up during coffee and lunch breaks.

Abstracts need to specify the title of the envisaged contribution and must not exceed 250 words. The document should not have more than 3 pages including figures or graphics and the file size should not exceed 3 MB. At least two and up to five topical keywords need to be specified. An overview of keywords within the four topical areas of the conference can be found below. Up to three publications can be cited, outside of the word count.
