Oral presentation
The first author of the abstract is intended to give the lecture. The talks will be 12 minutes long followed by 3 minutes discussion. Abstracts selected for oral presentation may in addition be shown as poster presentation to allow further discussion.

Poster presentation
In general abstracts are accepted for poster presentations.
However, abstracts can be rejected based on lack of scientific quality or for ethical or legal reasons.
Posters will be displayed during the whole meeting with virtual meeting rooms set aside at specific time slots.
Authors are asked to present their poster during the respective time slots.

Posters are presented with an online system. Technical help to set-up the posters will be provided beforehand.
