  • The Scientific Committee reserves the right to reject abstracts.
  • All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. The reviewing process is strictly confidential and all reviewers have agreed to the following: “I understand the confidential nature of the abstracts, and I will not discuss their contents with any individual, nor will I make copies of abstracts for my own or others’ use. In addition, I will not review any abstracts where conflict of interest may be perceived, i.e., work on which I have authored or co-authored or work completed in laboratories where I work.

When selecting an abstract Category, please choose carefully. The abstract Category you select will determine which Scientific Section your abstract will be destined.
