Six abstracts have been selected by the Scientific Committee among 1463 accepted abstracts to be entered into the Best Abstract Prize Competition. Each nominee will give a 10-minute Power Point oral presentation followed by a 5-minute discussion of the abstract.

This will be an interactive session, where audience members will vote for the best abstract. The audience vote is taken into consideration by the panel.

The three best abstracts will be announced after the presentations and will be awarded with prizes of € 3000, € 2000 and € 1000.
