Abstract Review Process
All submitted abstracts undergo a peer-review process by an international panel of reviewers. Accepted abstracts are selected for oral presentation or poster display. The Abstract Committee reserves the right to accept or reject any submitted abstract and re-categorize any accepted abstract. The decision of the Abstract Committee is final and irrevocable.
Notice of acceptance or rejection of submitted abstracts will be sent to the presenting author by mid August 2012. It is the responsibility of the presenting author to inform all other authors of the status of the abstract. Presenting authors may also check their congress profile to see the status of the abstract.
