Conference FAQs

Q: If I submit an abstract do I have to attend the Conference?
A: It is expected that at least one author of the accepted abstract attends the conference to present the work and answer questions. Only abstracts of registered participants will be scheduled in the Scientific Programme.

Q: I have submitted an abstract, when will I know if it has been accepted?
A: Notifications will be sent to the abstract author after all abstracts have been reviewed by the Scientific Committee. Every effort is made to conclude this process within one month of the abstract submission deadline. In the case of an extension, an extended abstract submission deadline will be agreed and circulated to authors.

Q: How can I make changes to an abstract I have already submitted?
A: You may log into the Abstract Submission system with your username and password to make changes to your abstract until the submission deadline date. You cannot submit any changes to your abstract after this date. You are welcome to bring a more up-to-date abstract to the Conference.

Q: If my abstract is accepted, where will it be published?

Q: How do I apply for a visa to visit Austria?
A: Austria is a member-country of Schengen Area. A Schengen visa is a short-stay visa that allows a person to travel to any members of the Schengen Area, per stays up to 90 days for tourism or business purposes. It enables its holder to enter, freely travel within, and leave the Schengen zone from any of the Schengen member countries. There are no border controls within the Schengen Zone.

Visa regulations depend on your nationality and country of origin. We suggest you contact your local Austrian Consulate for official instructions on the specific visa regulations and application procedures that may apply to you. It is the responsibility of the participant to obtain a visa if required.
