Thank you for your interest in submitting an abstract for ESGE Days 2018. By opening the call for abstracts, ESGE wishes to engage with our participants, to open up a forum which offers authors with the opportunity to discuss and disseminate their work on an international stage.
ESGE Days encourages work that contains basic, clinical or translational research findings. Please read the following guidelines carefully before submitting your abstract/video:
Before submitting an abstract, authors must create a personal account in the ESGE Days 2018 Abstract Submission System. More than one abstract can be submitted from one account. After an abstract has been created, modifications can be made until the submission deadline on November 15, 2017.
The abstract category is the general heading under which the abstract will be reviewed and later published, if accepted. The abstract category which best describes the subject of the abstract should be chosen. During the submission process, submitter will be asked to select one subcategory from one main category.
Abstracts submitted should contain concise statements of:
The abstract text body is limited to 300 words including the title. Titles are limited to 25 words.
One table can be included, with maximum 7 rows and 10 columns.
After submission, a confirmation email will be sent to the submitter. In order to receive confirmation, please ensure that emails from email@example.com are not marked as spam by your e-mail provider.
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.
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.
An abstract which has been previously published or presented at an 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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
