We do not have any specific guidelines about the use of tables 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 should be included in an abstract. 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.
