Notification to Authors

The submitter is the main contact for any questions or information we have regarding an abstract.

All correspondence relating to the submission will be directed to the submitter, and the submitter should distribute to all co-authors/presenting author if needed.

Abstract status notifications will be sent to authors in June 2020.

 Publication

All accepted abstracts will be published on SIU's eLearning platform, SIU Academy. Publications imply transfer of copyright of the article to the Publisher. This will ensure the widest possible protection and dissemination of information under copyright laws.
