  • Payment procedure

    The early bird discount applies to payments received until 22 July 2019. Registrations will remain open until 29 July 2019 at the regular price.
    N.B. Payments must be received within each deadline indicated (if you are paying by bank transfer or through your administration, please ensure that it is initiated in due time).

    Payment is possible by credit card or bank transfer. Further details about the payment procedure is available through your personal myABCD page. Normally, invoices or receipts (for VAT exempt payments) will be issued and sent to participants after payment.

    N.B. Before processing the payment, please determine wheter you have specific billing requirements.

    Please decide to whom your registration costs must be billed to and make sure that you have all the required information: address, VAT number or fiscal code (codice fiscale, for Italians only), etc.

    ABCD will be unable to modify invoice, should the details provided be incorrect or outdated.

    Electronic invoicing for Italian public administrations (only for non ABCD members!)

    If the invoice has to be issued to an office of the Italian public administration (e.g. your Department, your University, etc), you need to follow the procedure for electronic invoicing for PA (Pubblica Amministrazione): in this case, before proceeding with the payment, contact the ABCD secretariat at segreteria@abcd-it.org to receive further instructions.

    Payment must be made by the public administration/institution upon receiving the electronic invoice issued by the ABCD and before the payment deadline; please take administrative delays into account.

    Cancellations and refunds

    Cancellations with a refund request must be sent by e-mail to the organising secretariat and must be accompanied by a valid justification. Refunds will be decided case by case by the organisers. If accepted, cancellations within 29 July 2019 will be refunded fully, minus an administrative charge of 30 EUR; cancellations within 5 August 2019 will be refunded only by 50% of the total package price; no refunds will be provided after 5 August 2019.

     

  • Pre-Congress Meeting

    The Congress registration fee (see Registrations & Costs) covers the attendance of the Pre-Congress Meeting for those accepted; dinner on Wednesday, 18 September, is also included. To apply, you must be a post-doc or a Ph.D. student and be under 35 years of age at the start of the congress. You must indicate your intention to participate during the registration procedure.

  • Guidelines for Abstracts

    Abstract

    Abstracts are accepted exclusively through this website, after registration, through your personal myABCD page (you will need to register to have access to the latter).

    The abstract submission deadline is 22 July 2019. The organisers will then review the received abstracts for oral or poster presentations. All submitted abstracts will be discarded if payment is not received by 29 July 2019.

    Only registered participants can submit an abstract and each registered participant may submit a maximum of one abstract. Abstracts should be submitted by the presenting author only.

    Format

    • The title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc). Example:
         This title is written correctly
         This Title is Not Properly Written
         ALSO THIS TITLE IS WRONG
    • If more than one author, underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the names; do not use 'and' before the last author. The presenting author's first name(s) and surname should be written in full; for all other authors, write first name(s) as initials and surname in full. If more than one affiliation, use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution. Example:
         Mario Rossi1, J. Doe2, F. Bloggs1,2
         1Dept Biomembranes, Golgi & Veratti Univ., Pavia, Italy
         2Dept Bioblast Analyses, Altmann Univ., Leipzig, Germany
    • The abstract text must be no longer than 2000 characters, spaces included (which is roughly equivalent to 250 words).
