Dear WAC members, Dear colleagues
Please note that all abstracts submitted earlier as a part of session proposal were used only for evaluation purposes. This enabled the Scientific Committee to have a greater insight into what papers are likely to be presented in the specific session proposed.
As a result, it is thus necessary to submit all individual abstracts via the Paper/poster Submission Form and select the appropriate session. It is important that all co-authors are adequately provided, with the presenting and corresponding author(s) specifically identified. It is further be specified if the abstract is for oral presentation (paper) or a poster.
All contribution proposals (final abstracts of papers/posters) have to be submitted by individual authors through this page before the deadline on March 21, 2020.
