Please note that congress delegates expect technical/scientific presentations, rather than sales or commercial presentations. Accordingly, the use of trade names must be avoided wherever possible. Papers should contain material which is new in the public domain and has not been previously published or presented elsewhere. All submissions will be treated in strict confidence and will only be made public on publication of the congress programme in November 2020. The official language of the congress will be English. The oral presentation time will be approximately 25 minutes, followed by 5 minutes for discussion. The registration fee for speakers from industry is at the reduced rate of EUR 430, inclusive of all conference material, the coffee and lunch breaks and the welcome get-together. Academic speakers are provided with free registration.
