Submission of abstracts & guidelines
Abstracts must be submitted not later than 31 December 2018 by filling in the on-line submission form available at (www….). Abstracts received after that deadline will not be accepted. For every accepted abstract is required for at least one of the authors to be pre-registered. Authors are exclusively responsible for the submission of their presentation according to the abstract submission guidelines and for submitting their abstract in due time according to the abstract submission deadline. If guidelines are not followed, abstracts will be returned to sender/writer to correct them, if the abstract deadline hasn’t expired. In case the submitted abstract does not respect the rules and there is not time for correction due to the abstracts deadline, it will be disqualified automatically. As soon as the evaluation process will be concluded, all submitted abstracts will receive comments and suggestions from the peer review process. We recommend that you do not let the presentation of your work for the last week, as the electronic system can be overloaded and you may not be able to submit your abstract eventually. In case you find any difficulty in submitting your abstract electronically, please contact ARTION Conferences & Events (email). The Scientific Committee reserves the right to include a presentation according to the needs of the Conference’ Scientific Program or even change the presentation type from oral to e-poster.
