Due date of registration for the presenters (symposia and poster) 


All the participants except for invited speakers need to pay the registration fees by the due date. Each individual registration can cover only one abstract, and each group registration can cover up to 5 abstracts. Otherwise the accepted abstracts will not appear on the program and proceedings. 

As is a tradition for IOP, accepted abstracts by delegates who fully register will be published as a special issue of the International Journal of Psychophysiology (5-year Impact Factor: 3.174). They will therefore be on the WoS and other databases.
