Tracks, Subtopics & Keywords


During the abstract submission, please:

1. Select the TRACK and SUBTOPIC that you think relates most to your abstract (1 alternative is optional).

2. Select up to 5 KEYWORDS (3 required) from the keyword list that you think relate most to your abstract.

Please note:  The final allocation of accepted abstracts to workshops (oral sessions) and poster sessions will be mainly based on the keywords selected. The selection of a track and subtopic will be mainly used to allocate abstracts for the reviewing process.


A printable overview of all tracks, subtopics and keywords can be downloaded here.
