  • It is the author’s responsibility to review the submissions and correct them. Please proofread your abstract before completing your submission.
  • The system will only allow one abstract per registered author.
  • The main author / presenter must register until March 31st, 2017.
  • All abstracts must be submitted in English.
  • After the submission, the confirmation letter will be automatically sent to the responsible author by e-mail. Please make sure that personal data registered are correct.
  • The acceptance of abstracts will be notified to the responsible author by email.
  • All abstracts must be related to the themes and subthemes proposed by IUPAC 2017.
  • After submission, the abstract cannot be changed.
