Symposia Submission Guidelines
Call for Symposia proposal is open!! Deadline: November 22th, 2018
SYMPOSIA are particularly important since the themes of those selected will generate the Topics of the Meeting. Proposals will be evaluated by the International Scientific Committee* on the basis of the scientific quality, due also to the Speakers invited. Topic duplication will be avoided, and a balance among proposing Countries will be considered. Communication on the selection will be given by Dec 15th 2018.
TIMING: each Symposium will last 2 hours. After a brief introduction, the 3 invited speakers will have 25 min. 2 additional speakers giving 2 short communications (10 min) will be selected in march from the Abstracts submitted to the Congress addressed to the same Topic. Remaining time will be dedicated to discussion.
ORGANIZERS: Symposia organisers should not be speakers in the same symposium. They will have 5 min to introduce the Symposium aim. Organizers are expected to chair the session with a co-chair that the organizers & scientific committee will assign.
SPEAKERS: Congress Fee will be waived for the 3 invited speakers (25 min talks) of each Symposium.
OTHER EXPENSES: The Meeting budget will NOT support travel and accommodation costs of speakers, as well as Congress fee and travel and accommodation costs of organizers.
