Abstract Submission


The Organizing Committee of IVC-20 and partner conferences, would like to extend our gratitude and welcome you to submit your late-breaking abstract by the end of June. The late-breaking abstract deadline is not intended to be merely an extension of the general submission deadline. It will focus on capturing abstracts with ground-breaking research and unique data that would not otherwise have been presented at the congress.

All abstracts will be reviewed by the Program Committee and assigned to the appropriate session based on the author’s application and program requirements. All abstracts will be submitted to the 9 IUVSTA division topics and, depending on the topic you select, your abstract will be submitted to related divisions and/or parallel conferences. In addition, abstracts from VASSCCA member societies will be submitted to VASSCAA-8 as well.
