General Information on Abstract Submission and FAQ

Content – Authors

  • Please note that you may be presenting author of only one paper, but co-author of any number of abstracts.

  • Can you submit a paper that has already been presented at another meeting or published? This is acceptable. However, chances are that your work will only be accepted allocated as poster, not as a talk.

  • Disambiguation of Presenting Author, First Author and Submitter
    – Presenting Author is the person who will present the poster/talk at the meeting. Note that you can be presenting author of only one abstract, but co-author of any number of abstracts.
    – First Author is usually the person who did the main part of the research in the study. She or he can, but does not necessarily have to be the presenting author.
    – Submitter is the person who enters the abstract into the submission system. She or he can, but does not necessarily have to be one of the authors. The system will pre-fill the first author with the contact data of the submitter, but this can of course be amended.

     

Acceptance criteria

  • Multiple submissions with identical presenting authors will be automatically rejected

  • Identical submissions from different first authors will also be automatically rejected

  • Abstracts containing no results or structure will be rejected

  • Abstracts with the obvious goal of advertising corporate products or services, will be rejected
