Terms and Conditions

It is a condition of acceptance of the abstract that at least the presenting author must register to attend the Conference and present the paper either orally or participate within the dedicated poster sessions. Abstracts submitted before payment of registration are eligible for an offer of acceptance but final acceptance (and publication as a Conference abstract) requires registration and payment by the deadline of 2 February 2018. All presenting authors must attend at least the full day of their presentation. Submission of abstracts implies the author's agreement to publish the abstract in all Conference publications including the website.

Acceptance of abstracts does not imply any payment from the Conference Committee. Authors must arrange and pay their own accommodation, travel etc. to attend the Conference. Acceptance or otherwise is at the discretion of the Conference Scientific Committee whose decision is final.
