Poster submissions are still open!


In preparing to make your submission, please ensure that you have read all the information below.

Click on the submission button below, which will take you to a web portal, where you can register for the conference and submit your abstract.


  • Ensure you use one of the following browsers: INTERNET EXPLORER (v11 or newer) MOZILLA FIREFOX (v44 or newer) SAFARI (v5 or newer)

  • Mac Users: if you have trouble submitting your abstract, try submitting from a PC. If you are still have issues, please contact the secretariat.

    • Have your abstract open on your own computer to enable you to cut and paste it into the submission system.


You must be a registered and fully paid delegate before your abstract can be successfully submitted.

The Conference Committee will review all submissions before selecting the presentations which will be included in the conference program. Due to time constraints, there will be a limit on the number of concurrent presentations.


The review committee will notify authors of their program decisions in October 2019. Specific presentation instructions will be included in the notification.
