  • Payment

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

    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 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 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 22 October 2018 will be refunded fully, minus an administrative charge of 30 EUR; cancellations within 26 October 2018 will be refunded only by 50% of the total package price; no refunds will be provided after 26 October 2018.


  • Abstracts guidelines

    Abstracts are accepted exclusively after registration, through your personal mySTC 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 22 October 2018. The organisers will then review the received abstracts for oral or poster presentations.


  • Travel Fellowships

    The ABCD provides fellowships to help towards the meeting expenses of young ABCD members (under 35), junior or regular with their 2018 ABCD membership paid. The request for this fellowship is made during the registration procedure. Please note that candidates will be evaluated only after payment of the registration fee.
