Call for abstracts for oral and poster presentations

The Program Committee invites authors to submit abstracts for inclusion in the Scientific Program. All abstracts have to be submitted through the congress website (you will receive a link after registration) and must conform to the general guidelines for submission. Abstracts submitted via e-mail, fax or other will not be accepted. The online abstract system will take you step by step through the submission of your abstract. Please, select one symposium that comes closest to the topic of your abstract. Per symposium three contributions will be selected for oral presentation.

Deadline for abstract submission - selection for oral presentation - 1st of June 

Deadline for abstract submission - poster presentation - 10th  of July. 


The following structure is strongly recommended when writing a balanced and well-designed abstract:

One or two sentences only on the background for the study or the case report; this should simply justify the study and not attempt to review the literature

One sentence clearly stating the main objective(s)

A summary of the methods (no more than one third of the abstract length)

A summary of the main results (no more than one third of the abstract length)

A one sentence concluding statement


Abstracts should be formatted as follows:

Length: 250 words excluding title, authors, affiliation, source of funding and conflicts of interest

No images, tables, graphs or references
