Abstracts must be submitted in good English and carefully proofread to ensure the accuracy of published material. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to reject abstracts submitted in poor English, or may request an immediate revision by the author.
Authors may provide their preference of presentation format: oral, poster or no preference.
Please choose one main topic and sub-topic (if applicable) to categorise.
The Scientific Committee has the authority to re-categorise the abstract.
The title of the abstract should be concise and accurately describe the study undertaken. Do not use non-standard abbreviations and commercial names (generic names only).
Abstracts should be structured to include the following 4 sections:
- Background: introductory sentence specifying the purpose of the study
- Material and methods: brief description of relevant experimental procedures
- Results: summary of the results of the investigation
- Conclusions: a statement of the main conclusions
The abstract submission system will not accept abstracts that exceed 2900 characters (body of the abstract including spaces and 1 table) and submission cannot be completed.
Only one data table is permitted in the body of the abstract. Illustrations and figures are not allowed and will be deleted if submitted.
Abbreviations may be used if standard or if spelled out and defined at the first use (put in parentheses immediately after the first mention of a term or phrase). Compounds should be mentioned with the generic name, in lower cases. Commercial names are admitted in the text, with an ®, and if in brackets following the generic name, i.e. “generic (Commercial ®)”.
Up to 3 keywords should be provided to distinguish the abstract for indexing purposes.
No more than 20 authors can be listed with only their institutional affiliation(s), city and country. Mailing addresses and academic degrees should not be mentioned. For co-operative study groups, the name of the group should be used instead of individual institutional affiliations or include the name of the group in the title of the abstract.
