During the submission process, you will be asked to select one topic category for your abstract. The topic category is the general theme under which the abstract will be reviewed and later assigned and published in the Congress materials (if accepted).
Abstracts must be comprised of four distinct sections:
Please do not insert tables into the body of the abstracts. They will need to be uploaded into jpg, png or gif as a figure.
All abstracts must be submitted electronically through the Congress management system.
Abstracts should not include libelous or defamatory content. Material presented in abstracts should not violate any copyright laws. If figures/graphics/images have been taken from sources not copyrighted by the author, it is the author’s sole responsibility to secure the rights from the copyright holder in writing to reproduce those figures/graphics/images for both worldwide print and web publication. All reproduction costs charged by the copyright holder must be borne by the author.
The Congress welcomes the submission of abstracts previously presented at national, regional or international meetings in the two years preceding the congress. Encores must be documented as such at the time of submission. To be accepted, the abstract must include significant additional data from the previous presentation/s. Submission will not be permitted if a manuscript has been published.
The Congress regards plagiarism as serious professional misconduct. All abstracts are screened for plagiarism and when identified, the abstract and any other abstracts submitted by the same author will be rejected. In addition, the submitting author’s profile and award application, in the case one has been submitted, will also be cancelled.
To be eligible to submit an abstract, you must disclose that the author(s)/ scientist(s) have not violated any aspect of the following Ethics Statement:
Abstracts may be submitted for either oral, poster, or oral/poster presentation (to be determined at the Committee’s discretion). Please note that space is very limited for oral abstract presentations.
Each presenting author may present a maximum of two abstracts at the Congress: two orals or two posters or one oral and one poster. The number of submissions is however not limited. Should an author have more than two abstracts accepted, a co-author must be named as presenting author for one or more abstracts. All presenting authors must register and attend the Congress.
