Q: If I submit an abstract do I have to attend the conference?
A: All accepted abstracts are scheduled in the Scientific Program either as Oral, Short Poster Talk or Poster presentations. It is expected that at least one author of the abstract attend the meeting to present the work and answer questions. Only abstracts of registered participants will be scheduled in the Scientific Program.
