  • Methods: describe the study period / setting / location, study design, data collection and methods of analysis used.
  • Results: present as clearly and in as much detail as possible the findings / outcome of the study. Please summarize any specific results.
  • Conclusions: explain the significance of your findings / outcomes and future implications of the results.

Late-breaking abstracts

Abstracts which cover state-of-the-art research with up-to-date results will be considered for late breaking abstract submission. Findings presented at another conference in 2018 will be considered if the abstract includes innovative scientific findings achieved in the meantime. Please note that late-breaking abstracts are solely for up-to-the minute findings. This is not a deadline extension for those who missed the official abstract deadline.

Policies for abstract / video submission

Copyright policy

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.

Resubmission policy

An abstract which has been previously published or presented at a national, regional or international meeting can be submitted provided that there are new methods, findings, updated information or other valid reasons for submitting.

If preliminary or partial data have been published or presented previously, the submitting author will be required to provide details of the publication or presentation. This information will be considered by the ESGE Days scientific committee when making final decisions.

If the author neglects to provide these required details and justification, or if evidence of previous publication or presentation is found, the abstract will be rejected.

Plagiarism

The conference organizers regard plagiarism as serious professional misconduct. If plagiarism is identified, the abstract and any other abstracts submitted by the same author are rejected.

Review and selection process

All submitted abstracts will go through a blind peer-review process carried out by an international reviewing committee. The ESGE Days scientific committee uses abstract scores and rankings to develop the final congress program and select abstracts for oral or poster presentation at ESGE Days.

Abstract / video presentation

A small number of highest-scoring abstracts are selected for presentation in oral presentation sessions; the majority of the abstracts will be displayed in the Poster Exhibition.

Notification of acceptance or rejection to corresponding author

Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the submitting (corresponding) author. Please note that only the corresponding author will receive an email concerning the status and is responsible for informing all co-authors. Authors whose abstracts have been accepted will receive instructions for the presentation of their abstract/video.

If an author is invited to present and does not confirm their participation, the abstract/video may be withdrawn. Declined invitations will result in automatic withdrawal.

Common reasons for rejection:

  • Abstract poorly written
  • Clear objective and/or hypothesis missing
  • Linkage between different parts of the abstract not comprehensible
  • Summary of essential results inadequate and/or missing

Abstract withdrawal

ESGE Days will withdraw an abstract upon written request from the submitting author. Requests for withdrawal must be made by November 14, 2017. After this date, ESGE cannot guarantee that a withdrawn abstract will be excluded from publication. Requests to withdraw an abstract must contain the submitting author’s name and abstract title. To withdraw an abstract, please contact secretariat@esgedays.org.
