Submit your abstract through the Ex Ordo abstract submission system. You will be required to setup an account first.
All submissions will be reviewed based on technical merit, readability, relevance and originality.
If you have any question about the submission process, check the FAQ here or contact us.


Oral presentation

Oral sessions consist of a series of individual talks. The time allocated to each oral presentation is 15 minutes including 3 minutes for questions

Poster presentation

A poster presentation allows you to interact face to face with people interested in your research. Posters should be no larger than A0 (84 cm wide by 119 cm long) in portrait format (landscape format is not allowed).

Workshop presentation

Workshop presentations are interactive skills-based discussions that could last up to 60 minutes. Workshops must be interactive, and include practical information that participants can bring back to their communities.

Video presentation

If you are unable to attend the conference, but still wish to have your paper presented and published, we offer on-line presentation. Your presentation will be uploaded on the conference website prior to the conference. You are still required to submit an abstract and one author must pay the registration fee. At the end of the conference, you will receive a certificate of presentation and the digital book of abstracts.


If you submit your abstract before February 17th, you should receive the notification of acceptance/rejection on March 3rd. You will then benefit from Early Bird rates if you register before March 17th.

If you submit your abstract after February 17th, your abstract will be allocated to Scientific Committee members as soon as you submit it via the Ex Ordo system. You should then receive the notification of acceptance/rejection by May 17th.

This method enables you to:

  • Have enough time finalize your work and deliver a high-quality presentation.
  • Apply for a VISA or a grant early enough, if needed.
  • Have time to arrange your travel and accommodations
