Call for Papers


Starting from 08 May 2019, we cordially invite you to submit your planned contribution to IWGO 2019 (oral presentation and/or poster) via the online submission platform. The deadline for submissions is 15 June 2019.

How to submit an abstract

To submit an abstract, first complete the online registration form. After completing the registration process, you will be logged in to your conference account, from where you will have access to the on-line submission.

Each participant can submit two contributions: one oral presentation and/or one poster. The length of the abstract is limited to 2000 characters including spaces.

Please select the session that best fits your contribution or according to the instruction of the relevant scientific session coorganizers.

If your contribution does not fit into any of the sessions, simply assign it to the "Free Session" category. We will then either help with the assignment or organize contributions in a "Free Session".
