All abstracts must be formally submitted in English via the online Abstract Submission System. Please note that abstracts sent by fax or regular mail will not be accepted.

Do not forget to indicate the presenting author for each abstract. The presenting author is expected to attend the meeting and is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.

Abstracts can be saved as draft and modified, but no changes can be made to the abstract after the submission deadline.
