We review every submitted abstract within 5 days of the submission date. We will then inform you whether your abstract has been accepted for presentation.

What do I need to know about the Submission System?

The Conftool abstract submission system is easy to use. We recommend to access it by using the latest versions of Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Apple Safari. It is recommended that JavaScript should be enabled to facilitate the use of the system. The system allows you to pause your online submission at any time to continue at a later date, and your data will be saved. 

Until when I can make changes to my abstract? 

You can edit or modify your abstract after the submission, but only up until 31 October 2020. After the deadline, no further corrections or changes to the abstract title or the co-authors can be made.

How do I know that my online submission is completed?

After successful submission of your abstract, you will receive an automatic confirmation by email if you do not then, please contact, having first checked your spam folder.

Which email address should I use for abstract submission?

The exact same name and email address should be used for both the registration and the abstract submission systems so that they correlate. 

At the end of my submission, the system offers the option to submit Files. What does that mean?

Use the Submit Files option to submit any images, diagrams or tables you wish to be included in your abstract when published in the Abstract Book. Make sure that your abstract as added in the abstract field is correct. We will copy your abstract from this field, and it will be published as included by you.
