The call for abstracts for WCC 2018 has now closed.

We would like to thank all authors for your contributions to the WCC scientific programme!

The Congress Programme Committee reviewers have evaluated all the papers received – quite an inspiring task! If your submission has been accepted for presentation at the WCC 2018 congress – you will have already received an official communication indicating this.

In the meantime you can stay tuned on all congress news by signing up for the WCC newsletter: fill in the information at the bottom of this page and then click “Submit”.


New to WCC 2018 and for more interactivity, all accepted abstracts will be presented as either ePosters or moderated ePosters. This offers all presenting authors the option to include videos and images in their poster presentations.

All accepted abstract submitters have received a personal link and instructions on how to submit their ePoster.  Please refer to this communication to guide you through the process.  The guidelines for ePoster preparation and moderated ePoster preparation can be found below.  Should you have any questions or require any further information, please contact:
