Each abstract/research project may only be submitted once and by only one of its authors who will also be the one to present it as an ACTIVE participant. All other authors may participate in the congress as PASSIVE participants.
Co-Authors may only be active participants and present in case of first-author’s unavailability.

A student may be a co-author of multiple abstracts. However, each active participant is only allowed to submit and present one research project.

In case you are unable to present during the congress, your project may be presented by one of its co-authors. Only the active participant that presents the project is able to compete for the prizes and awards. Lastly, if you have submitted an abstract that has been approved, but are unable to participate during the congress, your abstract will still be included in the Abstract Book of ICMS 2019.
