  • To ensure a diverse range of voices and ideas, ATBC enforces the 'one presentation' rule for all speakers. This rule stipulates that each presenter is limited to only one presentation during the conference. This rule limited to oral sessions, posters, and symposia. This policy is designed to maximize the variety of perspectives and topics covered, and to give a wider array of delegates the opportunity to showcase their work.

    For any questions regarding abstract proposals,  please write us to

  • We welcome abstract submissions in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Swahili as part of our commitment to celebrating diversity and fostering inclusivity in science. This initiative aims to amplify the voices of diverse communities and perspectives, providing a platform for presenters to deliver their talks in any of these languages.

    Presenters will have the option to deliver their talks in any of these languages. To ensure accessibility for all attendees, we require presenters to prepare bilingual slides featuring both the original language of the abstract and English.
