Abstract submission

You are welcome to contribute to the NLC2019 by submitting an abstract to the Scientific Committee to be considered for making an oral or a poster presentation at the Congress! Abstract submission is now open!

Abstract submission will be closed on March 25, 2019. You will be notified about your abstract's acceptance via e-mail after the submission deadline.

Before submitting your abstract, we kindly ask you to read the abstract information below.

Abstracts will be evaluated and selected by the Scientific Committee for oral or poster presentations.

Abstracts must be submitted on-line via the abstract submission form. Abstracts cannot be submitted by fax, hard copy or e-mail. The deadline for receiving the abstracts is March 25, 2019.

We kindly ask you to register by 25 April, 2019 when early bird registration ends. 

Before submitting, please check carefully that your abstract is in accordance with format guidelines as no further changes are allowed after submission. If the format requirements are not followed, your abstract will be automatically rejected.

Confirmation of a successful submission
When your abstract is successfully submitted, you will receive a PDF confirmation via e-mail, containing the exact details of the submission (including the title, co-authors, and text). If you do not receive an e-mail within a few minutes, please contact the Congress Secretariat via:  

The accepted abstracts will be published in the Programme/Abstract book, on the condition that the presenting author is registered for the congress and has paid the registration fee.


By submitting a research communication and the submission form, the author(s) transfer copyright ownership so it can be published in the congress’s online proceedings.

Format - layout
The abstract can be up to 1800 characters long (excluding the title and author details) written in 12pt Times New Roman (black is the only allowed font colour). The format of the abstract is flexible, but should contain information on the aim of the work, methods, results and conclusions. A statement that “the results will be discussed” is not acceptable. Do not use subheadings (methods, results, etc.). Tables, graphs and figures are NOT allowed. Do not use subheadings in bold. No advertisements.

Abstracts must be written in English. It is the author’s responsibility to submit a correct abstract; any errors in spelling, grammar, or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author, if the abstract is accepted.

Firstly, please note that abstracts are not edited after approval. Therefore, please proofread your abstract carefully before submission, since it will be printed exactly as submitted.

Also, once the abstract has been reviewed, changes to the abstract cannot be accepted. If an error is later identified, you are free to withdraw your abstract if you wish. During the abstract’s uploading process, you will need to list all the co-authors of your abstract.

If you have any questions, please contact the Congress Delegate Services
