> Please refrain from spelling abstract titles and co-authors' names in capital letters.
> The author‘s name (full first name, family name) and place of work (institution, city, country) should be indicated in the respective form fields, not in the abstract title.
On Your Abstract:
> State the specific background & objective of the study
> State the methods used, if pertinent
> Summarise the results obtained

> Ensure that the abstract does not contain spelling, grammar or scientific errors, as it will be reproduced exactly as submitted.
> A maximum of 2 abstracts per author will be accepted for submission. Additional submissions will be charged extra (with further notice).
> An abstract which has been previously published cannot be submitted, unless there are new methods, findings, updated data or other acceptable reasons for submitting.
> Abstracts are to be submitted in English, the official language of the ISSY 35, should not exceed 400 words and be structured in the following specified subtitles: background & objective, methods, results and conclusion.
> Case reports should also be structured as much as possible following the aforementioned categories. If not possible, the authors should upload the abstracts using the most appropriate categories (in the respective text boxes in the submission form).
> The abstract submission constitutes a formal commitment by the author to present the corresponding presentation in the session and time slot assigned by the Scientific Committee.
> Changes in authorship should be communicated to the Symposium Secretariat in order to ensure correct appearance in the printed programme.
> Should the first author, who is considered the presenter, turn out to be unable to present his/her poster or have more than two presentations on one day, one of the co-authors should take over this responsibility. A change of the presenting author needs to be communicated to the Congress Secretariat and will only be processed after acceptance of abstracts. Presenter changes, which are being addressed to the Symposium Secretariat before the official acceptance notification, will not be considered.
