  • Abstracts are published in the “abstract book” handed out to all conference attendees. Abstracts of oral contributions will be included in the printed version of the abstract book as well as titles of poster presentations. All abstracts will be included in the full version of the abstract book available as "pdf” file on an USB stick provided in the conference bag.
  • Abstract content is the responsibility of the submitting author.
  • Submission of the abstract means consent to publication of the abstract in the abstract book and the distribution of the abstract book to conference attendees and, occasionally, to other interested persons.


Poster presentations and poster talk

  • 20 posters at most will be selected for a “poster talk” which is a short presentation (3 minutes/3 slides). Abstracts for poster talks will be selected by the Organising Scientific Committee.
  • Posters will be presented at the EUROPT(R)ODE XIII congress in the course of a poster reception on Monday evening along with Styrian wine and finger food to give the opportunity for discussion and networking.
