You can submit one abstract.
If you need to edit the abstract you already submitted, please, send an email to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). Modifications will not be accepted after the 15th February.

The corresponding author will receive an e-mail confirming the successful submission of the abstract. All abstracts for consideration as oral presentations will undergo peer review by the Scientific Committee. A decision on the acceptance of your abstract will be made as soon as possible.

Abstracts should be checked for accuracy prior to submission. Once the abstract has been submitted, changes, corrections or rewording will be possible until the abstract deadline on February 15th, 2019. After this date changes will not be possible. The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission. Abstract submission does not constitute registration for the conference. Abstract presenters must register to attend the conference by following the instructions for registration.

Submission of an abstract acknowledges your acceptance for the abstract to be published in the official RPP2019 Abstract Book.

Posters must be brought to the meeting by the presenting author and should not be mailed in advance. The required dimensions are 84 cm (width) by 120 cm (height) corresponding to an A0 format. At the top of a poster, please provide the title of the paper, names of the authors and their affiliations, all in bold lettering of about 2.5 to 3 cm size. Artwork and lettering should be large and clear enough so that the poster is readable from a distance of 1.5 m.

Important Submitting an abstract for presentation does not constitute registration for the conference. Abstract presenters must register to attend the conference by following the instructions for registration.
