  • Abstracts must be free of typographical and grammatical errors.

  • You will be asked to provide a short biography (up to 150 words) with your submission.
  • You will be asked to nominate your preference for digital poster or mini oral presentation.
  • Please include degrees or professional titles (e.g. Dr, Prof., etc).

Presentation Types

Poster Presentations

Invited Plenary Presentations
Oral Presentation:
30-minute presentation, comprising of 25 minutes + 5 minutes for questions.

How will digital posters enhance your experience?

During lunchtimes and free afternoons, delegates will be able to browse through the posters on the kiosks (large touch screens), visit a digital poster theatrette to hear the mini oral presentations, view posters on the app on smartphones and tablets.

This new and innovative digital poster integration will:

  • Feature built in animation and video streams.
  • Enable delegates to access posters on phones, tablets, laptops, and kiosks within the exhibition hall.
  • Allow delegates to view uploaded posters on the app at any time (the app will be launched around 2 weeks prior to the Congress).
  • Make it possible for delegates to contact authors via the app to organise meetings and ask questions about the poster.
  • Allow you to communicate directly with fellow presenters, enhancing your networking opportunities.
  • Give authors access to statistics on poster engagement.

Notification of Acceptance

The Program Committee will review all submitted abstracts and asses them in relation to quality and relevance to the Congress themes. Notifications of acceptance will be sent via email to the submitting author on Wednesday 12 October 2022. Abstracts that cannot be accommodated within the program will be considered and reviewed for an alternative presentation type.

The Congress Managers will not be held responsible for abstract submissions not received via the website or for submission errors caused by internet service outages, hardware or software delays, power outages or unforeseen events.
