Abstract submission FAQs
Where do I submit my abstract?
Do I need to use a template?
Yes – you will need to format your abstract using the abstract template. This can be found within the Abstract Submission Portal.
How long does the abstract review process take?
The abstract review process begins after the abstract submission deadline has passed. It usually takes around four weeks for the organising committee to review all submitted abstracts and reach a decision. This may take longer if the number of abstracts submitted exceeds expectations.
How will I know if my abstract has been accepted?
We will contact you via email regardless of the outcome.
