The panel has to have a contact person to be in touch with the conference committee when it comes to questions and further planning, scheduling etc. Thereafter you are welcome to submit your own abstract to the panel. You have to write “Belongs to panel [Title]” (and then your own title for your abstract) in the field Title in the abstract system. If your own Title is too long to fit in the Title field, address it again as a headline in the document you upload as your abstract.
