    Abstract

    15.12.2019 Hinweis
    Call For Abstracts: Do not miss the opportunity to present your work in Brussels! The Call for Abstracts closes on December 15. Please carefully review the following guidelines prior to submitting an abstract. Registration for the Congress is mandatory for presenting authors. The presenting author of an abstract must be registered by March 15, 2020 Abstract Preparation: Experiments and data must be completed at the time of the abstract submission. Abstracts for papers already published or accepted before the 14th EGS congress deadline will not be accepted. Scientific material submitted to the 2019 ARVO meeting are exempted from this rule; however this fact must be clearly indicated in the abstract. The following subdivision of abstract is mandatory: Purpose, Methods, Results, Conclusions. 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. The Scientific Programme Committee aims for 'to the point' informative abstracts. 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. Rules for abstract submission: Abstracts should be unpublished work at the time of presentation. Abstracts submission is possible on-line through the website only. Abstracts submitted by email, fax or post will not be accepted. The online abstract submission is available from September 30, 2019 through December 15, 2019, 11:00 p.m. local time (CET) on the congress website. Abstract length is limited to 350 words (tables and graphics included). The submitting author creates a personal account with email address and password and can submit, edit or delete abstracts until the submission deadline. At no time the Organizing Secretariat Staff can make any changes to abstracts. 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. Authors who are unable to attend and give the presentation as scheduled, must notify the Organizing Secretariat OIC and withdraw their abstract at abstractEGS@oic.it. 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. Once programmed, abstract presentation times and locations cannot be changed. 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." Note: 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. Full text of all abstracts selected for presentation and publication will be available on the EGS Website from April 20, 2020.
