In addition to submitting a contribution, you must register as a participant with the ConfTool.Each person may only submit one presentation as first author (poster, individual presentation, presentation in a symposium). This excludes the role of discussant in a symposium, which you can take in addition to a contribution as first author.Submissions in German and English are welcome. Each submission should include a title, the author(s) name(s) with institutional affiliation(s), a short abstract (max. 120 words), and a summary of the research to be presented (max. 400 words without references).

These prizes will be presented at the conference dinner. The criteria for these prizes include originality, scientific quality, and design of the poster.
