Guidelines for abstract submission

General information

Congress delegates are encouraged to submit original research. Authors need to be aware of patient considerations before submitting abstracts for publication. All abstracts must be written in English.

Author eligibility

The submitter must be an investigator with substantial involvement in the study presented and the right to submit and present the study.

Abstract format

  • Title: No more than 75 characters
  • Text: No more than 250 words


You are invited to submit abstracts for presentations of one of four types:

Oral paper presentation: An individual (more authors can be seen from abstract) presentation grouped in parallel sessions with comparable papers. Abstracts assessed high in quality will be invited for "oral presentation".

Poster presentation: An individual (more authors can be seen from abstract) presentation placed on a portable wall. Abstracts relevant for the conference and not invited for oral presentation will be invited for a poster presentation.

Symposium: A self-organized seminar of more papers (three or more) on the same topic to be presented in the same session and relevant for the conference theme.

Workshop: A self-organized seminar of few presentations relevant to the conference theme. Workshops are intended to be thoroughly interactive with considerable participation and discussion from those attending. Workshops may have an explicit agenda of training participants on a given topic, or of generating an interest group or a network for future collaboration. If applying for a workshop, please include a description of the content and how it will be covered (pedagogical methods, etc.).
