Conference Registration

Please note that conference participation is by invitation only. Our call for proposals closed in October and the interest in the conference has been extremely high – we received more than 1,000 abstract and session submissions.

All contributors have been informed of acceptance/rejection of their submissions via email. If you did not get an email, please reach out to us via specifying your submission(s) type and title(s).

All invited participants must register through registration links sent via email.



All chairs and speakers of accepted sessions have been notified with detailed session information via email. We kindly ask session chairs to collect their speakers’ confirmations and forward them to the organising team at We also encourage session chairs to continue working with speakers on refining sessions content. The organising team will send registration links via email.

If you were accepted as a speaker for two sessions, please choose only one session inform your session chairs and the organisers of your decision.


If your abstract was accepted as a poster, please follow the instructions for registering to the conference via the link sent to you via email with the notification of acceptance (the registration deadline is December 11, 2017).

Please note that due to exceptionally high number of submissions, we will only have space for one poster presentation per person.

***If your session or poster was not accepted and you would like to be considered for one of the general participation slots, please follow the instructions below.***



There are a limited number of spots for general participants. The period to submit a request to join as a general participant has closed. The Scientific Steering Committee will review the requests and we will notify you directly by email if we are able to offer you a space.
