The Congress organisers are delighted at the excellent response to the Call for Papers. More than 1100 abstracts had been received by the time the Call was closed in February. Authors whose abstract has been accepted were emailed in early March. If you submitted an abstract and have still to hear whether it has been accepted, please let us know by email ( It may be that the email has been trapped by a spam filter – we are aware that this has happened in a small number of cases. Please note that it is now too late to submit an abstract if you have not already done so.
