General information for speakers

Please note that congress delegates expect technical/scientific presentations, rather than sales or commercial presentations. Accordingly, the use of trade names must be avoided wherever possible. Papers should contain material which is new in the public domain, and has not been previously published or presented elsewhere. All submissions will be treated in strict confidence and will only be made public on publication of the congress programme in May 2020. The official language of the congress will be English. The oral presentation time will be approximately 25 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for discussion. The early registration congress fee for speakers from industry is at the reduced rate of € 425 (early bird fee), inclusive of all conference material and the conference dinner. Academic speakers are provided with free registration.
