During the conference, a student abstract competition will be organised. Students who intent to participate, have to select the appropriate choice during the submission process. Winners will be awarded with an oral presentation during the plenary sessions of the conference.

Students are considered all undergraduate authors who will submit an abstract. Students should be able to demonstrate their academic status upon-request.

Non-students are considered all researchers, clinicians, post-graduate fellows who will submit an abstract as author.

All authors who choose to participate to the competition, will be asked to submit an e-poster in advance (full details are stated below) for a second stage peer-review process.

The scientific committee will choose the best 3 abstracts to be presented as oral during the conference.
Abstracts not awarded will be presented as poster.

Selection process

All abstracts which will be selected to participate at the conference and authors who choose to participate to the competition, will enter the second stage peer-review based process. Authors will be asked to submit an e-poster in advance to the conference. Each e-poster will be randomly assigned to 3 members of scientific committee to be judged.


'e-poster' stands for electronic poster. Authors who entered into the second stage competition process will be asked to submit an e-poster. The advantage of this system is that authors can show more information than on classic paper posters.
The maximum file size limit is 10Mb per PowerPoint file, videos are not allowed.
The maximum number of slides for the e-poster is 10. Do not animate the slides and do not layer images, graphics.
