Symposia

In a symposium studies that deal with a similar topic but from different authors are combined under the heading of a specific research question. The participants should represent at least two different institutions. One symposium session may last 60 to 90 mins. The organizer of the symposium is responsible for the combination of the single contributions and the organization of proceedings.

Submitting rules:

Structured overall abstract for the whole symposium and structured abstracts for every single abstract.

Please note: The organizer of each symposium writes the overall abstract and sets up all related abstracts (abstract and corresponding authors). The name, postal and E-Mail address of the first author are compulsory. Discussants may also be registered in that way.
