How to Submit

Abstract submission for new and updated abstracts starts on January 25th and ends on February 19th, 2021.

  • If your previously submitted abstract has been accepted, either as an oral or as a poster, its submission remains valid and there is no requirement for further action unless you want to modify or cancel your submission (see instructions below).
  • The number of new acceptances will be limited and the new abstracts should focus on new results obtained in recent months.
  • Each conference participant can be the presenting author of one contribution only.
  • Please note that plenary and invited speakers should also submit an abstract.
  • Presenting authors must register and pay the conference fee.
  • Submitted documents must be in PDF format. Other formats (MsWord, TeX, Postscript, ...) are not acceptable.
