    2. Enter abstract title and text (necessary for the online Book of Abstracts). Copy-and-paste approach can be used but make sure that special characters, superscripts and subscripts are properly entered. Do not copy the figures into the available fields (abstract with no figures will apper on-line). Abstract file with figures, for the printed Book of Abstracts, will be uploaded in step 3.

Do not break the uploading sequence by navigating to other pages as your session will be terminated, and you will lose all information entered in the current session. Only use "Next step" or "Back" buttons located at the bottom of the page.

Once you have submitted your abstract(s), you can access your submission(s) through the Summary in the My Account menu.

You can upload a new version of your abstract(s) before the abstract deadline. First delete the old abstract, then add a new version. You will have to go through the entire abstract submission process again.
