Topic leaders 

In response to feedback from members we will hold a call for contributions presenting the very latest findings and breakthroughs that have never been made public before. This call for 'late breaking abstracts' is open from 1-14 December 2014 at 23:00 Central European Time.

Submissions on all topics will be reviewed by all session chairs, with the very best being selected for presentation in one dedicated session. Other abstracts of sufficient standard will be offered the opportunity to present as 'late breaking posters'. Late breaking abstract authors will be notified of results beginning January 2015.


Many thanks to all 300+ people who responded to the main call for abstracts that closed on 1 October 2014. The conference secretariat will send out notifications of acceptance/rejection at the beginning of December 2014.

If you have any questions about your abstract, please contact:

PLEASE NOTE: The deadline for abstract submission is 23:00 CET, Sunday 14 December 2014. This deadline will not be extended!

What types of presentation may a late breaking abstract lead to?

  • Oral presentation: Speaking slot in a conference session supported by visual presentation. Duration of between 5 and 15 minutes.
  • Poster presentation: Presentation via a large-format poster that will be displayed prominently throughout the event. Dedicated poster viewing sessions will take place during the conference allowing delegates the opportunity to meet with authors.

How do I get the best result from my abstract?

  • Ensure the abstract is relevant to the topic you submit under.
  • Focus on what conference delegates will learn from your presentation.
  • Do not submit a sales pitch – it will be rejected!
