For a symposium, all abstracts should be submitted in one single Adobe PDF file with:

- Integrative overview of the symposia with a limit of 250 words. The overview should include the objectives of the session and the scientific significance of the symposium.
- An abstract for each presentation (following "Guidelines for all submissions”), indicating the authors that will present as "presenter".
Individual paper presentations
Follow "Guidelines for all submissions”. All individual presentations proposed outside of symposia will be grouped with other individual presentations according to theme. The conference organizing team will appoint a chair who will be responsible for coordinating the presenters and leading discussion as well as ensuring that the session keeps to time.
Follow "Guidelines for all submissions”. Poster presentations combine a graphic display of materials with the opportunity to discuss research findings directly with conference participants. Poster size is A0 (height: 118 cm, width 84 cm). Poster format is portrait/vertical position.
