Abstract Submission

The Local Organising Committee is pleased to announce that workshops, symposia, abstracts, poster submissions etc will be managed using Pensoft’s ARPHA – BISS system. Following its successful use for the TDWG conference in Ottawa, 2017, we have chosen to deploy the system, from submissions to publication, for both SPNHC and TDWG. ARPHA (Authoring, Reviewing, Publishing, Hosting, and Archiving) is the first end-to-end journal publishing solution that supports the full life cycle of a manuscript, from authoring through submission, peer review, publication and dissemination.
