Abstract Review

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the programme committee who will do their best to accommodate the wishes of the submitters for oral or poster presentations.

However, it is expected that due to the large number of submissions that some requests for oral presentations will have to be assigned as posters.  If your submission is not accepted for an oral presentation it is not a reflection of the quality of your submission but rather due to time constraints and the need to ensure all aspects of the conference topics are adequately covered.

The organisers reserve the right to reject submitted abstracts that are poorly written, do not follow the submission guidelines and/or are outside the scope of the conference. 

Submitters will be notified on the acceptance or non acceptance from 15 November 2018.

All presenters will be required to pay the relevant registration fee to attend AMN9 and to meet their own travel and accommodation costs.

Presenters need to register and pay by 1 December 2018 otherwise their paper risks being removed from the programme.

Each room at the conference venue will have a minimum of the following:

  • Data projector
