Late-breaking Abstract Submission

Late-breaking abstracts describe important current research advances and which have not been submitted previously. 

Only state-of-the-art research with up-to-date results is considered. Authors of standard abstracts are not prohibited from submitting late-breaking abstracts. Work presented at another conference this year will be considered if the abstract includes innovative scientific findings achieved in the meantime. The selection will be based on scientific quality and novelty of research either in basic or clinical science. Please note that late-breaking abstracts are not a second chance for those who missed the official abstract deadline.

Late-breaking abstract submission is closed.
