Poster presentations will still be accepted until Friday 16 May for inclusion within the abstract book. After 15 May “late breaking” poster abstracts will be accepted – these abstracts will not appear in the abstract book but on an addendum sheet provided at the conference.

Once abstracts are approved, delegates must register and pay by 15 May in order to be included in the scientific programme.
