  • Payment

    Payment is possible by credit card or bank transfer. Further details about the payment procedure is available through your personal myDOTT.

    N.B. Registration fee payments received after the deadline will be subject to a late payment charge of € 30, which will be added to the total cost.

    N.B. The payment date is considered as the date in which payment is credited to the ABCD account (not when the payment procedure is initiated; please take this into consideration, especially if your payment is being processed by your administration).

    Before processing the payment, please determine wheter you have specific billing requirements.

    Please decide to whom your registration costs must be billed to and make sure that you have all the required information: address, VAT number or fiscal code (codice fiscale, for Italians only), etc.

    Electronic invoicing for Italian public administrations (only for non ABCD/SIBBM members!)

    If the invoice has to be issued to an office of the Italian public administration (e.g. your Department, your University, etc), you need to follow the procedure for electronic invoicing: in this case, before proceeding with the payment, contact the ABCD secretariat at to receive further instructions.

    Payment must be made by the public administration/institution upon receiving the electronic invoice issued by the ABCD and before the payment deadline; please take administrative delays into account.

    Cancellations and refunds

    Cancellations with a refund request must be sent by e-mail to the secretariat and must be accompanied by a valid justification. Refunds will be decided case by case by the organisers. If accepted, cancellations within 19 February 2018 will be refunded fully, minus an administrative charge of 30 EUR; cancellations within 20 February 2018 will be refunded only by 50% of the total package price; no refunds will be provided after 20 February 2018.


  • Abstracts guidelines

    Abstracts are accepted exclusively during registration or, after registration, through your personal myDOTT page (you will need to register to have access to the latter).

    Only one abstract per participant is allowed. The abstract should be submitted by the presenting author only.

    Abstracts guidelines:

    • the title must start in uppercase and continue in lowercase, except for conventional terms (ATP, DNA, NFκB, etc).
    • if more than one author, underline your name (the presenting author, in whatever position you appear in the author list) and use commas to separate the names; do not use 'and' before the last author. The presenting author's first name(s) and surname should be written in full; for all other authors, write first name(s) as initials and surname in full. If more than one affiliation, use sequential superscript numbers to identify each institution.
    • the abstract text must be no longer than 2000 characters, spaces included (which is roughly equivalent to 250 words).

    The abstract submission deadline is 16 February 2018. The organisers will then review the received abstracts for oral or poster presentations.


  • Travel Grants

    The ABCD and SIBBM will award travel grants, covering the registration fee, to a good number of participants. To be eligible, the following conditions must be met:

    • be a member or a junior member of the ABCD or of the SIBBM
    • be less than 35 years old at the start of the meeting.

    You may apply for the travel grant during the registration procedure. The number of travel grants assigned will depend on the number of requests.

    N.B. To be eligible for the fellowship, the participant must have already paid the corresponding registration fee.
