PREPARATION OF YOUR
Preparation of your abstract
Abstracts must be submitted in English. A “blind” selection process will be used. No identifying features such as names of hospitals, medical schools, clinics or cities may be listed in the title or text of the abstract. Do not include the names of authors either. Their names and affiliations (institutions) will be registered separately when submitting the abstract online.
Due to the global pandemic of COVID-19, numerous scientific and medical congresses and symposia (including the EADV Symposium in Porto) were cancelled. In these extraordinary circumstances, for the EADV Congress in Vienna, we will accept abstracts that have been previously submitted to other events as long as they have not been published online or in any journal.
The title should be as brief as possible but long enough to clearly indicate the nature of the study.
The title should not be written entirely in capital letters (e.g. NOT LIKE THIS).
The size of the abstract is limited to 3,000 characters (spaces and pictures are not taken in consideration).
The submission program will automatically calculate the size of your abstract and will not allow submissions that do not fit in the size requirements.
The template of the abstract is structured with the following subheadings:
- Introduction & Objectives
- Materials & Methods
If your abstract describes a case report, you can insert the whole text under the “Results” section.
Check spelling and grammar carefully. Direct reproduction from your electronically submitted abstract text means that any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific data will be reproduced as submitted.
Use generic names. The use of commercial drug names, brands and registered trademarks are strictly prohibited. Drugs should be referred to by the active substance or pharmacological designation.
No mention of pharmaceutical company names should be included in the abstract either.
The evaluation and scoring of the abstract (acceptance as poster or as oral communication, or rejection) will be made according to a number of criteria, including:
- Is the content interesting, informative, novel or important?
- Are the methods valid, the results relevant and the conclusions justified by the data?
- Are the data presented with clarity and with appropriate structure?
- Is the text written according to proper English grammar and syntactic style?
The authors should specify if they prefer their submission to be considered for:
- e-Poster presentation only
- Oral presentation only
