The abstracts should be written in English, which is the official language of the symposium.

Authors should specify whether they prefer an oral or poster presentation.

We will provide opportunties for Oral Presentations specifically for young researchers to promote their professional development.

All presenters must be registered to the 4th International Symposium on “Traditional Foods from Adriatic to Caucasus” in order to have their work presented in the scientific fields of the congress.

The abstract book will be printed and sent to the participants after the symposium. We would like to inform you that the oral and poster presentations that are accepted by the committee but not presented by the authors during the congress will not be published on the abstract book.

Corresponding authors can submit a maximum of 3 abstracts.  There are no limits on the number of abstracts for which you may be listed as a co-author.

Abstracts must be submitted through the online abstract submission module.  The online submission link will be activated as soon as possible.
