Submit an abstract > Submission guide

Abstract submission will be handled entirely by our system.

Please follow the guidelines given in the submission workflow. The abstract text body should be limited to 2,500 characters including spaces.

Due to the high number of participants, talks are limited to two per first author (you can be first author of several posters and co-author of several talks). The first author should be registered to the congress.

The abstract submission deadline is April 8th 2018.

You may submit your abstract by visiting our abstract submission system.

To submit an abstract you need to log in to the SciencesConf system. If you are not registered you will be asked to do so. If you are already registered in SciencesConf, please enter your username and password.

The title should have a maximum of 200 characters including spaces and the abstract text a maximum of 2,500 characters including spaces. Please use the Arial 12-point font. Your abstract should only contain text, no key-words, no references neither figures are allowed.

Follow the submission step by selecting the session. Talk and poster presentation options are available for selection.

The next step will bring you to the authors' page (all abstracts are limited to a maximum of 10 authors and one institution by author). Fill the form as required.

At the end, you will be redirected to a summary page where you can either accept your upload or return and edit your content. Once you finished the submission, you will receive an acknowledgement of your submission by email.

Abstracts can be modified online until the deadline. Supplemental files might be uploaded but this is clearly optional.

There will be no refunds of registration fees if the abstract is declined.


Acceptance and the next steps

Abstract will be considered for revision only if the first author is fully registered (including payment). Please notice that an abstract not accompanied with a full registration will be deleted after the 30th of April 2018. 

  • The submitted abstracts will be evaluated and the acceptance will be communicated no later than April 30th 2018. The authors should suggest their preferred mode of presentation (oral or poster), but the scientific session boards will decide the final destinations of the abstracts.
  • The online version of the programme along with the abstracts will be available on line during the congress.
  • All accepted abstracts will be scheduled for oral or poster presentation and will be compiled in PDF format. A digital version of the abstracts and the congress's final programme will be available on the IPC5 Congress's website.
