 Guidelines for ORAL and POSTERS presentations

Before submitting, please read carefully the abstracts’ submission guidelines


 Abstracts submission guidelines

Authors are invited to submit their abstract online from this website. Abstracts sent by email will not be accepted.

To submit an abstract, we invite you to use the « Abstract submission » button, and to respect the guidelines and the template for the document layout you will find below.

Abstracts will then be reviewed and selected by the scientific committee members, and the organizing committee.

The selected candidates for both posters and oral communications will be notified by the Congress Secretariat.

After acceptance of your abstract, to ensure that your abstract is maintained in the programme, you will have to register online and pay your registration. Deadline for such registration will be defined later.


  • An “oral session” is a 1 to 1.5 hour slot during which 15 minutes oral presentations will be presented (oral: 12 min, Q&A: 3 min). It can be completed by a poster session. Given the importance of the session, it can be allocated only one 1 to 1.5 h slot, or several.
  • Workshops will aim at elaborating common proposals and/or recommendations on a given topic.
  • Roundtables will aim at enabling participants to express their ideas, opinions, present their experiences (success, failures...) and proposals, and promoting a debate between them without necessarily converge to a synthesis.

A synthesis of the outputs of Workshops and Roundtables (as well as sessions) will be presented during the last day of the Conference and will be published.
