The Presenting Author 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 Presenting Author, and they should distribute to all co-authors if needed.

Abstract status notifications will be sent to authors in July 2022.

Publication and Copyright

All accepted abstracts will be published on SIU Academy as an ePoster with voice-over as well as a supplement of SIUJ. Publications of abstracts on SIU Academy and SIUJ implies transfer of copyright of the article to the Publisher.

After this date presenting authors who have not paid their registration fees will be excluded from the programme as well as from the SIU Abstract Book and publication on SIU Academy. No exceptions will be granted.

*Abstract presenters who are not SIU members are encouraged to join, as this means a possible savings of at least €200 on registration fees.*

All expenses such as registration, visa, airfare, lodging, etc. associated with the submission and presentation of an abstract are the responsibility of the presenter.
