GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS

 

Late breaking abstracts

 

• The work and/or update must be novel, ground-breaking, of high significance, evidence-based and with scientific merit.
• The work and/or update must be original and not previously have been published or presented at any other scientific meeting.
• The abstract must present timely findings which were not available at the time of the deadline (19 October 2015). The late breaking abstract deadline is not intended to be a second deadline for abstract submissions.
• A limited number of late-breaking abstracts will be accepted.
• Submissions will be accepted for oral presentation only.

 

Regulations

 

With the submission of an abstract for ESTRO 35, the first (presenting) author:

  • Accepts responsibility for the accuracy of the abstract and ascertains that all authors are aware of the content before submission 
  • Accepts to be the contact person for all correspondence related to the abstract and to inform the co-authors about its status 
  • Accepts to identify any financial interest in products or processes described in the abstract. This includes stock ownership, membership on any advisory boards, commercially sponsored research or any other substantial relationships. 
  • Certifies that the information to be reported is for exclusive presentation in the session to which the abstract will be assigned if accepted and that the information will not be presented as such at any commercially sponsored satellite symposia during the conference.

Abstracts must be submitted and presented at the conference in English. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to reject an abstract written in poor English.

Abstracts will be anonymised before review to ensure fairness and eliminate possible bias. Therefore it is strictly forbidden to include the authors’ names or institutions in the body of the abstracts. Submitted abstracts that include such references may be penalised by the Abstract Reviewing Committee.

 

Abstract format

 

Title: Abstract titles should be brief and reflect the content of the abstract. The title (maximum 100 characters) is important since it focuses attention (it is the “showcase” for the presentation). Do not use capital letters in the title except for words that are always capitalised and do not use non-standard abbreviations. 

Body of the abstract: Abstracts should be structured in such a way as to include (1) Purpose/Objective; (2) Material/methods; (3) Results; (4) Conclusion. 

The use of standard abbreviations is desirable. A special or unusual abbreviation must be placed (in round brackets) after the first appearance of the word for which it stands. 

Word count: the on-line abstract submission procedure will not accept abstracts that exceed 2,500 characters (body of the abstract, excluding spaces).

Table and image: authors may include one data table in the body of the abstract in JPG format (this is not included in the number of characters) and one image in JPG format. The maximum file size of each image should be 500 KB. The maximum pixel size of the image is 600(w) x 800(h) pixel.

Equations can be inserted in the text as images (only JPG format).
