Once your abstract has been accepted, you will be asked to submit a paper (detailed manuscript) or a poster by 30th June 2023 at the latest.

Please note that the acceptance of your paper does not include your congress registration. At least one author is therefore  kindly asked to register for the congress. It is indispensable and linked to the publication of the manuscript in the conference proceedings.
