Abstract submission guidance:

  1. Abstracts must be submitted before midnight, Friday 15th June 2012. All abstracts will be reviewed by the faculty and successful applicants will be chosen based on originality and clinical applicability of the work.
  2. Presenting authors must be registered for at least 2 days of the ECI 2012 Congress.
  3. Work must be original and not have been published or presented in any international meetings previously.
  4. Abstracts must be typed in English and the abstract body must not exceed more than 2000 characters. 
  5. Abstracts must include the names of the presenting author, co-authors and institute.
  6. Use standard abbreviations and place a special or unusual abbreviation in parenthesis after the full word appears. Write numbers as numerals rather than words.
  7. ECI 2012 scientific faculty reserves the right to accept or refuse an abstract, to designate abstracts as either oral or poster presentations and to choose a suitable session for the abstract.
  8. Please note that when you first input your information, you will click ‘Save draft’: at this stage your abstract is NOT Submitted. To submit your abstract, you will need to return to the abstract submission page, finalise your abstract and click ‘Save FINAL’.  
  9. Please note that abstracts can only be edited whilst in ‘Draft abstracts’. If you have clicked ‘Save FINAL’ so your abstract is displayed in ‘Submitted abstracts’, but you need to edit your abstract, please email the Organiser Secretariat and your abstract will be returned to ‘Draft abstracts’.
