Abstract guidelines

Abstract guidelines

Abstracts should be written in English. The maximum length of an abstract is 2000 characters including characters and spaces. Characters are counted in the body of the abstract:

- Background;
- Aim;
- Methods;
- Results;
- Conclusions;
- Tables and Figures.

It is possible to present your results via a single image or one table. This will deduct one character from the character count. However, we do not recommend using an image or a table unless this is crucial for the interpretation of your results.

Deadline for abstract submission is on the 28th of February (23.59 CET). Only abstracts submitted before this time will be reviewed.
