When receiving the confirmation of acceptance and the assignment for poster or oral communication, assistances will have time to register with the reduced registration fee.

The Scientific Committee will contact with the principal author, who he/she should be the corresponding author.
  • For all the accepted works (both posters and oral communications), first author will have to be registered for the Symposium and will present the study.
