We could not be more delighted with the number of abstracts received over the last month – almost 800 submissions! Thank you very much for your interest in being part of the scientific program of SIL 100 !
The deadline for submitting abstracts was
20 April 2022, at 23:59 H in Berlin (22:59 UTC)
Abstracts for oral or e-poster contributions must be written in English and not exceed 250 words. The body of the text consists of a single paragraph and contains no figures, photos or tables. The abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee, which may suggest changes from oral to poster presentations and vice versa. Decisions will be based on scientific strength, fit to the session theme, novelty, clarity of the abstract, and contribution to diversity of the overall program. To ensure the most effective communication, the Scientific Committee may also suggest editorial changes to submitted abstracts prior to digital publication. Abstracts that are incomplete, far off-topic, or poorly presented may be rejected. Please note that only one oral presentation or ePoster is allowed for each presenting author. However, there is no restriction for co-authorship on multiple oral presentations or ePosters.
Oral presentations will be 10-15 min, depending on the final session organization, and can be held onsite or online. However, preference will be given to live presentations at the venue. The presentation language is English. We request pre-recording of all presentations to ensure online availability both during and after the congress, as well as smooth sessions in case of technical problems. Technical instructions on recording formats will be provided to the presenters in due course.
In the unexpected case that an in-person congress turns out not to be feasible, the entire event will be moved online. The difference in registration fees between onsite and online attendance will be reimbursed in that case. In the event that the congress takes place but presenters are unable to join in person because of pandemic-related travel restrictions imposed by authorities, their presentations will be given online. Here, the difference in registration fees between onsite and online attendance will be reimbursed as well.
