Abstract Preparation:

The following subdivision of abstract is mandatory:

Abstracts lacking a description of study methodology and a quantitative description of data will not be accepted.

Abstracts without a topic category indicated will not be reviewed.

Extensive presentations overloaded with details should be avoided.
Multiple submissions of the same topic on different abstracts will be rejected.
The Abstract must be written in English.

Abstract length is limited to 350 words (tables and graphics included).

An individual may be first author (i.e. presenting author) of only one abstract.
The presenting author's name must be the first name on the author’s list. It is permitted to be a co-author of an unlimited number of abstracts. Presenting authors (first authors) are expected to attend the congress and present their poster.

All accepted abstracts will be assigned to poster or oral presentation at the discretion of the EGS Scientific Committee.
Do not submit an abstract if you do not intend to present it at the Congress.

The Scientific Committee reserves the right to reject abstracts.
All abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. The reviewing process is strictly confidential and all reviewers have agreed to the following: "I understand the confidential nature of the abstracts, and I will not discuss their contents with any individual, nor will I make copies of abstracts for my own or others' use. In addition, I will not review any abstracts where conflict of interest may be perceived, i.e., work on which I have authored or co-authored or work completed in laboratories where I work."

When selecting an abstract Category, please choose carefully. The abstract Category you select will determine which Scientific Section your abstract will be destined.
For abstracts withdrawn after January 15, 2020, the entire abstract will appear in the Congress publications.
