The authors retain full copyright of their abstract, presentation and full paper but, by submitting an abstract, authors also give the organisers consent and authorisation to use their abstract in the Book of Abstracts for the Colloquium.


Abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee and sent back for corrections to the author if necessary. The organisers may reject any abstract that does not comply with the abstract format instructions. Authors will be notified about results of abstract submission by the end of July 2019.

All accepted abstracts will be published in the Book of Abstracts for the Colloquium.
