Abstract Submission Guidelines

EFORT does not accept resubmissions. Only abstracts submitted electronically can be accepted.

Online Submission Procedure
After logging on to the EFORT portal, be sure to follow the onscreen instructions precisely as they lead you through the submission process. There is no restriction on the number of abstracts you may submit, and you can proceed using the same login and password for all your abstracts. Some information is mandatory, however, and you will not be able to proceed further if you do not complete the fields. Please also note that you may modify your abstract(s) until the submission deadline date. Consider your submission category carefully. If there is a discrepancy between your topic and its category, EFORT reserves the right to change the category or reject your abstract. EFORT accepts a maximum of two oral presentations and five e-posters per registered participant.

Information of abstract acceptance
You will be notified by e-mail about the acceptance of your abstract(s) by 2 January 2011 at the latest. The presenting author of a selected abstract must undertake to attend the Congress and present the abstract in the session and at the time designated by the Scientific Committee. EFORT therefore requires all authors to register by 30 January 2011 at the latest.

Technical support
Technical support will be provided for authors of abstracts, as detailed in the frequently asked questions and help document. Please send all requests concerning electronic submissions for the 12th EFORT Congress by e mail to: abstracts@efort.org.

Oral Presentations (Free Paper Sessions)

Computer projection only will be available for presentations in the meeting rooms. To ensure that sessions run smoothly, please refer to the Presentation Guidelines available online on the abstract page. The best-rated free papers may be put forward for the EFORT Free Paper Award. From the presentations that are received, the three best will be selected for the award. The authors of the selected papers will be informed prior to the Congress, and the certificates will be presented during the official opening ceremony.
Impeccable English is mandatory for all appearing as speakers or moderators at our congress.

E-Poster Presenations
The poster presentations will be in electronic format. A large display area with e-posters will be dedicated to poster presentations. Out of the best-rated e-poster abstracts submitted for the Congress, the ten best will be awarded the Jacques Duparc Award. Authors will be informed prior to the Congress, and the certificates will be presented during the official opening ceremony.
