Review process

All submitted abstracts will go through a review process and authors will be notified if their abstract has been accepted for poster or oral presentation. Accepted abstracts will be published on a USB key that will be distributed to the participants.

Abstracts will initially be prescreened by the Scientific Committee to make sure that they conform to the symposium theme as well as to the session to which they are submitted; no abstract will be considered unless it goes through this first step.

After the prescreening, the authors will be informed about how to submit their abstract(s) to the ISHS via the online interface. If you are already a member of ISHS, the submission charge is waived as part of your membership benefits and you will be prompted to verify your contact details. If you are not a current member of the ISHS you will be required to pay a fee: €95 for European individual (€50 student) or €80 non-European individual (€40 student) before submitting your abstract on-line. By paying this fee you will either activate a new ISHS user account or reactivate your existing user account. You will then be entitled to register to the symposium at the reduced 'ISHS member' rate.

Please consult the ISHS Membership Categories page for more details on ISHS membership.
