Adding more details to my profile

By clicking on My Profile on the top of the page and then on Edit button you can add more details to your profile.

This can be useful if you (hopefully) plan to register for multiple events in the future. By adding those details now, you save a lot of typing later since your details will be filled in automatically.

Buying multiple registration fees (tickets)

You can buy multiple tickets of any kind. On the confirm order screen you will be asked (at the bottom of the screen) below Participants to add personal data for additional persons.

Buying multiple registration fees (tickets) for different events

Although this is technically possible, it has been disabled to avoid confusion. You can buy multiple tickets in a single process only from one conference at the time.

Abstracts

Where can I submit an abstract?

If your conference requires you to upload an abstract, you can do it by:

  • Clicking on a button 'Submit an abstract', usually found under Call for Abstracts on your conference website.
  • By logging into conference website and clicking on login/my profile in the header. You will see option 'Submit an Abstract'.
  • By logging into events.irb.hr and clicking on login/my profile in the header. You will see option 'Submit an Abstract' (for all active conferences).

You can resubmit your abstract as many times as you like, following above steps.

Working with the abstract submission form

Pay attention to descriptions, they give you instructions for input.

Make sure you select presenting author.

If you are uploading part of abstract, because of special characters and formulas, make sure it is in docx format.

If you are uploading an image, please upload png, jpg or tiff only.

After you are done filling in the form press submit (or cancel if you want to give up).

How can I resubmit an abstract?

Login into the conference web page by clicking on the 'Login' (in the header) and then click on 'My Profle' (in the header).

In your profile you will see all your abstracts. Click 'edit' button to edit and resubmit your abstract.
