NEW - Initiatives for Young Scientists Available!
All participants are invited to submit abstracts of scientific communications which will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee. The abstracts of the accepted communications will be published in the book of abstracts distributed to all symposium attendants.
Participants wishing to be selected for an oral communication should submit their abstract by May 23, 2024 via the abstract submission tool. The same deadline applies for participants willing to participate in the SPICA Slam contest.
Abstracts for posters can be submitted until August 28, 2024.
Out of the submitted proposals, 16 oral communications and 10 SPICA Slam presentations for young scientists* will be selected. Announcement of the accepted oral communications and SPICA Slam presentations will be made by end July 2024. The other accepted abstracts will get the opportunity to be presented as posters. For more info on the SPICA Slam presentations, please check here.
The preference between oral communication, SPICA Slam presentation or poster presentation should be indicated by the applicant during the submission process (please tick where appropriate on the form if you wish to apply for Oral Communication or for a SPICA Slam presentation and select the applicable keywords in the list). The final decision on the format of presentation will be made by the Scientific Committee.
Please note that abstracts submitted for oral communication will not be considered for a SPICA Slam presentation and vice versa. If you would want to apply for both, please submit two different abstracts.
Registration is required to submit an abstract, but payment is not mandatory at this stage. However, accepted summaries will only be published in the book of abstracts of the symposium after full payment of the registration fee. In case of questions, please contact the symposium secretariat (secretariat@LDOrganisation).
