During your submission, as the submitting author, you will be asked to confirm your agreement to the following statement in order for your poster abstract to go forward for consideration:

” I agree to be responsible for the organisation of my poster, including acknowledgement of the review outcome, registration of the presenting author and the submission of a PDF to the organisers for online display. I understand that to accept the invitation to display this poster at the event we must register one author on a 3-day ticket to represent the poster. I accept that it is my responsibility to ensure that the representing author is not representing more than three posters at this event.”

• Each selected poster must be represented by an author for the full 3 days of the conference.

• Failure to register by your submission period’s deadline date may result in your abstract being withdrawn from the conference.

• Registration, travel and accommodation charges are the responsibility of the presenter.

• All correspondence will be sent to the registered presenter. It is the responsibility of this person to pass on any relevant information regarding the submitted abstract and the conference to the other authors.
