Abstract submission

The deadline for abstract submission has expired.


All abstracts that have been submitted online by July 31st, 2017 (or by August 14th for the session on Environmental epigenetics, respectively) are reviewed by the conference scientific committee. Authors will receive notification by August 31st whether their abstract(s) has/have been accepted for poster or oral presentation.

Oral presentations

Main sessions: Oral presentations will consist of a ten minutes talk followed by three minutes of discussion. Two minutes will be reserved to allow a smooth change between successive speakers.

Parallel sessions: Oral presentations will consist of a 10 to 15 minutes talk followed by discussion and may differ between session. Detailed information will be given in the acceptance notifications.

Please also note that the number of time slots for talks is limited. As it is our aim to allow oral presentations to as many participants as possible and especially for reasons of fairness, we can allow only one oral contribution per participant

Poster presentations

Posters must have portrait format and should not exceed 84 cm (width) x 118.9 cm (height) (A0).

The venue has excellent facilities for poster displays and with several poster sessions during the programme as well as a "poster party" during the welcome evening on Wednesday (4th October), you will have an excellent opportunity to present your research.
