General information and guidelines on stand-alone papers

Stand-alone paper submissions will normally be assembled thematically into groups of 4 presentations per 90-minute session. Participants should prepare a presentation of around 15 to 17 minutes duration, to be followed by 5 minutes of audience questions. Chairs will require sessions to run strictly to time.

Each stand-alone session will be chaired by a Congress participant chosen by the organizing committee. The stand-alone sessions will not normally feature commentaries or group question time.

Each prospective presenter at the Congress may submit more than one stand-alone abstract or abstract within a symposium.

Abstracts for papers connected to an accepted Symposia will be handled using a different portal, this submission portal is for stand-alone papers only.

If you have any questions regarding the submission process, please get in contact with Georgia Watson.
