Abstract Presentation – Important Information

Oral Sessions at IIW Confreence 2019, Bratislava, Slovakia, will incorporate the highest quality submitted abstracts – giving abstract submitters greater opportunity to present their work orally. Abstracts will also be selected for e-poster presentation.

E-poster Sessions will form an integral part of the IIW 2019 Conference Scientific Programme. E-poster Sessions will not conflict with any other sessions meaning that they will not be scheduled at the same time as oral sessions in the programme.  E-poster authors will be asked to stand by their e-poster during scheduled e-poster presentation times. Authors will be notified of the status of their abstract by 15 April 2019. Further presentation instructions will be given at this time.


Conflict of Interest and Funding Disclosure

Authors are encouraged full disclosure of all relevant sources of funding in relation to abstracts submitted to this International Conference. Conflict of interest or funding disclosures should be added to the foot of the abstract text (this will not affect the word count).



All accepted abstracts submitted in the standard submission process will be published in the official International Conference Proceedings Book of the IIW 2019, Bratislava, Slovakia. Authors will be requested to supply their papers/e-posters in the form of camera-ready text for inclusion in the Proceedings book by 1 June 2019.


Confirmation of Receipt

Submitting authors will be sent an acknowledgement via e-mail to confirm that their abstract has been received. If you do not receive the acknowledgement within three days of your submission, please contact the Conference Secretariat on the e-mail address
