Once the abstract has been submitted, editing can only be performed in exceptional circumstances by contacting the organizers.

Avoid specialized jargon and undefined abbreviations. Do not include tables, figures, diagrams, footnotes, references, or acknowledgements in the text of the abstract.

Abstract submissions should be for research that is either complete or will have significant findings by the conference date.

All presenters accepted through the abstract submission process and/or presenting at the conference must register for and pay to attend the conference, and are responsible for their own related expenses. In addition, if the accepted presenter invites additional speakers to present with them at the conference, they must also register for and pay to attend the conference. (Exception: attendees who are offered a travel bursary )

Presenting authors should only present a single poster. Groups of authors who are able to submit multiple abstracts should ensure a different presenting author for each poster.
