REGULATIONS

With the submission of an abstract for ESTRO 37, 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.

Further notes:

  • Please log in to the abstract submission site with the presenting author login details
  • 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.

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 on-line abstract submission procedure: the on-line abstract submission system will not accept abstracts that exceed 3,000 characters (body of the abstract, including spaces).

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.

Table and image: with their submission authors may include maximum two (2) uploads (tables or images) in JPG, PNG or TIFF formats. These uploads are not included in the number of characters. The maximum pixel size of an image is 600(w) x 800 (h) pixel.

Data table: authors may include one data table using the insert table icon (we advise not to copy-paste a table into the body of the abstract). The characters in a data table are included in the overall number of characters allowed.

Equations: can be inserted in the text as images.
