Guidelines for the preparation and online submission of abstracts

Please make sure to read carefully the following guidelines before proceeding with the preparation and submission of your abstract. When you are ready for the submission, please select the Online Abstract Submission Form, at the bottom of this page:


  • All abstracts must be prepared, submitted and presented in English.
  • The abstract submission form should be completed by the author who will be responsible for all correspondence (correct email is really important).
  • Length: Abstracts (text body) should not exceed 250 words. When a table is included, then the text body should not exceed 200 words.
  • Table(s): Table/diagram/picture should be saved as an image file (jpeg, gif etc) before being uploaded (otherwise will not be uploaded successfully). Use of such graphics will automatically reduce the number of words allowed (it should correspond to 50 words and must be included in the limitation of 250 words in order to fit the size of an A4 paper). A maximum of two (2) images can be included per abstract. The image(s) will be placed at the bottom of the abstract in all publications and may be resized to fit in the format of the final printed material.
  • Structure: Abstracts must use the following structured format:
    In the final version, the text will not be sorted into paragraphs.
  • Title: The abstract title should be submitted strictly in capital letters and not exceed a limit of 25 words. Please do not use abbreviations.
  • Affiliations (Department/Hospital/University/Institution etc): In this field you should provide the affiliation details of all authors. Please use numbering for indicating the correspondence between author and affiliation. Each affiliation should be entered only once (not repeated for every author). In cases where an author is related to more than one affiliations, kindly use more than one numbers (e.g. G.E. Papadopoulos 1,2).


  • Authors are requested to check their abstract thoroughly before submission. The abstract, if approved for presentation, will be published as submitted. However, authors may contact the Organizing Bureau (Secretariat) until the deadline for abstract submission, in case they have to make any important corrections or changes in the abstract(s) they have already submitted.
  • Authors should not submit multiple copies of the same abstract. They should avoid replacing their submitted abstract with a new version (through a new online submission), without prior communication with the Organizing Bureau (Secretariat).
  • The abstract Review Committee may reject an abstract and not review it, if it does not adhere to the above guidelines. Therefore authors must strictly adhere to the above guidelines, otherwise abstracts cannot be considered for presentation. Such abstracts will be rejected and the author will not be informed.
  • The corresponding (submitting) author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission (submission implies that the corresponding author has received approval from co-authors)
  • Submission of an abstract acknowledges authors’ acceptance for the abstract to be published in all official congress publications/material.

Notes to Remember

  • 1. For any abstract submitted for presentation, the Registration Fee for at least one of the authors must be paid. If a participant pays the Registration Fee in order to submit an abstract and the abstract is finally not accepted, there will be a full refund only if the author does not desire to participate in the Symposium and send a written request to the Secretariat within 15 days of the notification of abstract rejection.
  • 2. Abstracts must be original. Abstracts already presented and published, will not be accepted.
  • 3. Contact/Queries: For any further information or clarification regarding your abstract submission you may contact the Organizing/Secretariat ( for further information and assistance.


After online submission you will receive (by e-mail) an "Abstract Submission Number" indicating that your abstract has successfully been submitted. This number must be referred to in all correspondence. Please print or save this receipt on your computer, as it will serve as a confirmation of successful abstract submission.

If you do not receive this automatic email immediately after your submission, your abstract has not been submitted properly (registered in the database). In this case you are kindly requested to repeat the procedure or contact the Organizing Bureau/Secretariat ( for further information and assistance.
