ABOUT REGISTRATION


1. It is possible to have a discount in the Registration Fee for attending the Conference during just one or two days?

No. The published Registration Fees are mean global estimations for covering the Conference costs taking into account many items. So it is really risky for guaranteeing the correct final economical balance and difficult for our administration capacity to offer such an option.


2. I would like to register and make the full payment on arrival. Is this possible?

If you submitted an accepted abstract and you want it to be included in the Abstract Book, you must comply with the registration deadlines, please refer to the DEADLINES and REGISTRATION sections of the conference website.

If you did not submitted an abstract, just attending the conference, you will be able to register on arrival, but, please, notice that we do require full payment for on-site registration and it will not be possible to pay by credit/debit card. Additionally, the late registration fee is quite higher than either the early o standard one. In general, because of organizing issues is not recommended this type of registration.




ABOUT PRESENTATIONS


1. I prefer to make an oral presentation, but you inform me that I have been accepted as a poster. It would be possible to accept my submission for an oral presentation?

Due to the number of contributions we received and the limited slots for oral presentation, we had to make difficult decisions that unfortunately some interesting abstracts will be in posters.

We know that it is impossible a selection that will reach a general agreement. We believe we have selected a proper mix of abstracts to address the conference themes.


2. I would like that my oral presentation could last more than 10 minutes. Can I have much more time?

No. We regret to communicate you that oral communications lasting more than 10 minutes are not possible, otherwise most of the submitted abstracts would have to be presented as posters.


3. My abstract has been accepted as an oral presentation, but I would prefer to present it as a poster. Would it be possible?

Probably yes. But you must contact the Organizing Committee as soon as possible.


4. Can I have some general guidelines to prepare my communication?

Yes, in the CONTRIBUTIONS page, GENERAL PRESENTATION GUIDELINES for ORAL and POSTER communications can be found.


5. According to the Conference Programme, my oral presentation should last 10 minutes. Additionally, the General Oral Presentations Guidelines refers to a 5 minutes period for questions and answers after the presentation. Then, I understand that, in total, a slot of time of 15 minutes is available for my communication. Is it correct?

Yes. But, please, keep in mind that the last 5 minutes should be devoted to discuss particular points raised by Delegates questions.
