• Submission deadline for Oral communication: Extended until 30th of June.
  • Submission deadline for Poster communication: Extended until 30th of June.

The meeting will not only highlight scientific knowledge from a set of awarded and invited lectures from around the world, but will also provide a forum for oral and posters presentations from young scientists such as Master, PhD students and post-docs, with competition for awards in a friendly atmosphere.


There will be room for 49 oral communications (12 min plus 3 min discussion) selected from the submitted abstracts.

A “best oral communication award” will be given to young scientist.

The abstracts not accepted for oral communication will be considered as posters if indicated in the abstract submission form.


There will be room for 50+ posters, to be presented during poster sessions and also exposed during the entire meeting.

Poster participants may apply (or not) for the “best young researcher poster award”. The process will be in two rounds:

  1. A “1-minute/1 slide” flash talk presentation of your poster during a friendly “flash talk session”. So please prepare and bring one slide with you!
  2. A 3-minute presentation/ 3-minute discussion of your poster to the “poster committee” during the poster sessions.
