As soon as your abstract has been received it will be submitted to the Conference Scientific Committee for review and you will be notified of its acceptance/non-acceptance in due course.

The submission of your abstract does not indicate automatic inclusion in the Conference Program. However, it is an acknowledgement (if accepted) of your consent to the publication of the abstract on the website and in the abstract handbook on the CD provided to all delegates on arrival. In addition, it also indicates acceptance of publication (if selected) in a peer evaluated/refereed Conference Proceedings Publication

Furthermore, submission of the abstract and its acceptance also obligates you to submit the full text paper to the conference organisers by 31 July 2012 for inclusion in the CDRom of all papers to be presented to the conference.

Abstract receipt and acceptance will be acknowledged to the person submitting the abstract. Further communication will be with the submitting author only unless otherwise directed.
