Submissions are peer-reviewed for scientific content, logical presentation, and current interest of the topic to the scientific community.

Results will be available from Monday 17 September, 2018.

All presentations including question-and-answers will be conducted in English. Presenters are expected to speak a good English.

If the abstract is accepted, instructions and guidelines concerning the abstract presentation will be provided to contact authors.
