  4. Conclusion 

There is no limitation on the number of co-authors, however only one person will be able to present if the abstract is accepted for an oral presentation.

You cannot add figures, tables or graphs in your abstract submission. This is something you can add in your presentation (oral or poster) if your abstract is accepted.

We do not have any specific guidelines about the use of tables, figures and graphs in abstracts.  However, do not use tables, graphs, and figures for small amounts of data that could be conveyed clearly in a sentence. Usually, only one table, graph or figure could be included in a poster. The table, graph or figure should take up no more than one third of the space of a poster.

The number of slots for oral presentations are limited and all abstract submissions will be subject to the scientific peer review system. All submissions can expect an answer by May/June 2021.
