Symposium (Thematic session) proposal submission is already closed, registration of abstracts is opened

Symposia proposals must be submitted EMAIL ( by midnight (23:59 CET), February 12, 2023:  

To submit your proposal, you will need the following information:

  • Title of the symposium/session
  • Symposium chair’s e-mail address and affiliation and the names and affiliations of co-organizers (each symposium can be organized by up to 2 people).
  • A short abstract (300 word maximum) describing the content and purpose of the symposium. If your symposium is accepted, this paragraph will appear in the program issue at the top of the session.
  • Full names (spell out first names) and affiliations of the symposium participants, and the titles of their papers/posters in their order of presentation. Please indicate whether your participants have confirmed their participation. List all titles and authors in the order of appearance. Number each presentation. Start the next presentation on a new line.

When preparing the program of your symposium, we suggest to consider the diversity of presenters, such as how they offer a balanced representation of the topic, institutional affiliation, career stage, ethnicity, and gender.

Acceptance of the symposium proposal does not guarantee acceptance of the individual abstracts. Individual abstracts are subject to the same review and submission deadlines as are all other abstracts.

If the proposal is accepted, the symposium abstracts and other materials are due at the same time as all other abstracts. The meeting registration and abstract submission website will be announced only after the symposium proposal deadline. For symposium participants only: you should choose the appropriate named symposium from the drop-down menu.  Please let your participants know about this as we typically receive over 300 abstracts.

We encourage symposia organizers to stay in close contact with their contributors and to review the abstracts prior to submission to ensure they comply with the requirements of regular abstracts. Poor abstracts can be rejected, even if they are part of a symposium that has been accepted.
