Authors may submit a total of two (2) abstracts. In the event that two abstracts from one author are accepted, SBUR will make every effort to assign the presentation of the two abstracts in different poster sessions.

Abstracts must be written in English and, if accepted, presented in English.

Submitted abstracts are graded individually by peer reviewers based on scientific merit and originality. The SBUR Program Committee has determined that 2019 abstracts will be presented in two different unmoderated poster viewing and discussion sessions.
