Review process

Abstract proposals will be evaluated through a blind peer review.

Priority will be given to abstracts using European data.

The abstract review committee reserve the right to make the final determination regarding the classification of your presentation in terms of the relevant track (Level 0 – 3) and focus (research, practice, policy/education).
