All participants are invited to submit abstracts of scientific communications which will be peer-reviewed by the scientific committee. The abstracts of the accepted communications will be published in the book of abstracts distributed to all symposium attendants.

Participants wishing to be selected for an oral communication should submit their abstract by 1st December 2021 via the abstract submission link on this website. Abstracts for posters can be submitted until 1st December 2021.

Out of the submitted proposals, 20 oral communications and 50 flash presentations will be selected by the scientific committee in collaboration with the session chairs. Announcement of the accepted oral communications: 1st December 2021. Announcement of the accepted flash presentations: 15th December 2021.

The preference between oral communication or poster presentation should be indicated by the applicant during the submission process (please tick where appropriate on the form if you wish to apply for oral communication and select the related main topic), but the final decision on the format of presentation will be made by the organizing and scientific committees.
