Abstract submission

Deadline for abstract submission is the end of December 11th (Eastern European Time), 2023. Notification of abstract acceptance/rejection will be sent within two weeks after the deadline. All abstracts must be submitted in English by sending them as email attachments to LaPabstractsubmission@gmail.com

No figures or tables are allowed. Please make sure that the whole abstract fits to a single page. It is recommended that the abstract follows the common format:

  • Title
  • The authors and their affiliations
  • Background: Introduction and the hypothesis or research question.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee, and the notice of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the submitting author only. For each abstract accepted for presentation, at least one author must register to the meeting by January 31, 2024, and present the contribution. We will decide on the form of presentations after the submission deadline has passed when we know the number of abstracts. The accepted abstracts will be printed in the congress abstract leaflet.
