Like previous annual SSCC congresses, also SSCC2024 offers opportunities for its participants to share results of research and development by either oral or poster presentation.
To this end, the congress committee invites you to submit abstracts. All abstracts will undergo reviewing by the scientific committee.  

Authors are kindly invited to submit their abstracts on the submission platform only. Abstracts submitted by fax or e-mail will not be accepted.
Please read the submission guidelines carefully.

Deadline for the abstract submission was Sunday, June 9, 2024 at the end of the day (extension from previous deadline of May 30).

Due to popular demand, it is possible to submit a late abstract until Monday, June 17, 2024 at noon.

Presentation of selected abstracts

Accepted abstracts will be invited to present their work in one of the following formats:

  • Four oral presentations on Wednesday, September 4, 2024 from 16:30 to 17:40 (10 minutes per presentation, followed by 5 min for questions and discussion)
  • Poster viewing during the entire congress and moderated discussion during the lunch break on Thursday, September 5, 2024


Posters must be prepared in English in A0 portrait format (841 x 1189 mm). Posters must be printed by the authors themselves and mounted at the beginning of the conference. Posters must remain on display throughout the entire meeting. Material for mounting the posters will be provided onsite.
