The sponsoring company is kindly requested to pay the 7.000 EUR directly to EVER.  In return, the name and logo of the sponsor will be printed in the programme and on the website in relation to the particular SIS.

All SIS contributors must submit an abstract summary of their presentation on-line.  Submission will be open from February 8 till March 15, 2018.  In order to submit a summary, all SIS speakers need to be EVER member 2018.
