Conditions, Requirements

The presenter is responsible for compliance with data protection, copyrights, ethical regulations and laws.

  • The abstract should be novel.

The authors should declare this during submission and make clear the new information that will be presented. Please tick the appropriate box “Parts of the data have been published previously”.
  • To secure anonymity of the review process, names and locations should not be disclosed in the abstract.

Abstracts must not be used to promote specific drugs, instruments etc. The presenter is responsible for compliance with data protection, copyrights, ethical regulations and laws. In cases where there is collaboration between companies and researchers from non-profit organizations, the work might be suitable for an abstract. Such an abstract will undergo standard selection procedures provided that conflicts of interests are clearly stated in detail. If the abstract is selected for an oral or poster presentation the presentation must submitted and given by the collaborating researcher that is not employed by the company.
