Abstract guidelines

The scientific program and all submitted abstracts will be printed in a book that is handed out at the conference. The correctly completed form will help us generate the book with similar layout for all abstracts.


Make sure that you accurately include all co-authors and their affiliations. If you are in doubt if a person should or should not be included as co-author, we recommend that you consult the so-called Vancouver recommendations.

Abstract body:

The abstract body is limited to 2500 characters (including spaces) in order to make each abstract fit on one page. In general, we encourage you to organize your abstracts in accordance with the IMRaD format [Introduction, Method, Results and Discussion], with a few sentences for each of these elements. However, for some of you this will not be a feasible solution, as you may have recently embarked on your PhD studies and therefore have little data to present. If this is the case, you may instead present your project plans - the aim, hypotheses, methods and possible implications of your project. Normally, it will not be required or recommended to add footnotes or literature list in an abstract. If your abstract includes information that requires reference, this should be included into the abstract text.
