Oral/Poster Presentations

The congress will have a selection of research topics of which oral presentations should be based on. Due to the limited availability of oral presentations sessions, applicants will also be asked if they are willing to give a poster presentation instead should the reviewing board not be able to offer an applicant an oral presentation slot.

Reviewing and Acceptance

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee who will decide those that will be accepted, and of those, which will be for oral or poster presentation based on their overall quality, impact and relevance to the conference. The result of this selection process will be announced in early May 2020.

Presentation Awards

ACSAC10 will award excellent presentation awards for students and early-career postdocs who are deemed to have given an excellent oral/poster presentation during the conference. Winners will receive a certificate on September 3rd, DAY 3, at the conference venue. For those who are interested in this award, please select "Apply" during the online submission process. Note that not all applications will be successful.

Student Travel Awards
