General Information

To obtain a Username and a Password, please access the menu "Submission" and fill out all the required data. You will then receive an email containing the username and the password to access the abstract submission platform.

After accessing the platform on the “Login” menu, you will be directed to your "Personal Area", where you should choose “Create new abstract”. The first time an abstract is submitted, it will stay in a Draft state. The purpose of this stage is to allow you to check if all is well with the data you have entered. You are then asked to either save the data as “Draft” or to “Save and Submit” it.

Choosing to “Save as draft” means that your abstract is not submitted yet and you can access the platform at a later moment and edit it.

Choosing the option “Save and Submit” means that you can no longer edit your abstract, only visualize it. In both cases an email message will be sent to you informing you of the stage of the process. You can repeat the step “Create new abstract” more than once, thus submitting a second.

Please note that you must fill in all fields marked with an asterisk and that there is a maximum number of characters for each section. You may copy and paste the text from another source if you find it convenient.
