Abstract Requirements

RAA 2019 participants should submit their abstracts via the online registration system, for approval by the Scientific Committee.


The book of abstracts will be published with an ISBN number.

Abstracts should be sent before 5th April 2019. Those received after this deadline will not be considered. The author(s) presenting the abstracts must register and pay the registration fee by 25th June 2019 in order for the abstracts to be included in the RAA 2019 Conference programme and Book of Abstracts.

The Scientific Committee will decide whether the abstracts are accepted, and in which form they will be presented (as oral presentation or poster). The author’s preference, as indicated on the entry form, will be considered, but the Scientific Committee reserves the right to final decision. The authors will be notified by email whether their abstract had been accepted no later than 26th April 2019.

The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of and consent to the content of the abstract before submission. The abstracts must be original and must not be or have been published or presented prior to the RAA 2019 conference. They must be submitted in English, exclusively via the online system of the RAA 2019 web page. Any other means of submission will not be accepted.

RAA participants are invited to send one or two extended abstracts, which should be sent as a Microsoft Word file (format *.doc, .docx, .rtf). The text should not exceed 2 pages of A4 format – title, authors, affiliations, and figures (max 2) included.

When submitting, please indicate your preference for the type of abstract’s presentation (oral presentation or poster). Oral presentations will be limited to 15 minutes time plus 5 minutes for discussion. Once at the congress, all electronic material (presentations in .ppt, .pptx format) should be delivered to the designated download point in the morning before the start of the sessions.
