The Symposium focuses on discussion of pre-circulated papers. Papers are presented in 10-minutes followed by a discussant's comments and general audience participation.
Researchers are invited to submit informative abstracts. The word limit for the abstract is 250 words (max 3 keywords), declaration of interest excluded.
Please note that the deadline for submitting an abstract has been extended to February 6, 2015.
The abstract should be structured into sections: introduction, methods, results and conclusion. The abstract must always include a sentence (declaration of interest) stating whether there exists any relationship that could be viewed as presenting a potential conflict of interest (if so, a full disclosure must be given).
