    Then you have to click on the button at the bottom of the page
    “Check abstract status”, a pop-up will open with the abstract you submitted.
    Within that pop-up, scrolling down, you will find another button:
    “I approve my submission” >> click on that.

    The pop-up will close, and now (again!!) you will have to click on the button

    at the right bottom of the page: “Confirm and submit”.

    A message with “Abstract submission completed” will appear.
