EAN 2021: Guidelines for Abstract Submission

  1. Abstracts must be submitted via your MyEAN profile. Faxed abstracts are not acceptable.
  2. Authors's details: include full mailing address, office hours, phone number, email address and fax number of presenting author, as well as affiliation details of all co-authors. By submitting the abstract, you confirm consent of all co-authors to provide their data.
  3. Abstracts must be submitted and presented in English. Please use UK spelling and have your abstract proofread.
  4. Abstracts should contain new and original information, not published elsewhere prior to 19 June 2021.
  5. Abstracts should be as informative as possible:
    • State specific object of study
    • State method used if pertinent
    • Summarise results obtained
    • State conclusions reached
  6. Abstracts should be structured and with the following headings:
    • Introduction
    • Methods
    • Results
    • Conclusion
  7. All abbreviations used must be defined the first time they are used.
  8. Avoid complex mathematical formulae. Try to avoid symbols (greek, mathematical, etc.). E.g. Instead of IFN-ß, use IFN-beta; instead of 10², use 10^2; instead of x≥2, use x>=2.
  9. Abstracts can contain a maximum of 3 tables or figures. The maximum file size and resolution is 2 MB and 300dpi per figure. Images should be submitted in JPG, GIF or PNG format only. The EAN may resize tables or figures to fit in the final material. Tables must be submitted as a separate graphic file.
  10. Abstract text must not exceed 250 words in total and 1500 characters per section. Abstract titles may contain a maximum of 25 words and 120 characters
  11. Authors should include their presentation preference: onsite oral, virtual oral, or poster. The Programme Committee will decide the final method of presentation.
  12. A maximum of 3 abstracts per presenting author may be submitted.
  13. After submitting your abstract, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your abstract reference number. If you do not receive a confirmation by e-mail, please contact abstracts@ean.org. The corresponding author is responsible for informing other authors about the status of the abstract.
  14. Should you wish to make corrections to an abstract already submitted or if you wish to submit other Abstracts later. After final submission deadline has passed, submitters can no longer modify or correct the abstract's content and the abstract will be published exactly as submitted.
  15. If an abstract is accepted, one author must attend the congress and present it. Acceptance of the abstract implies payment of the registration fee by the presenting author. If a presenting author does not register to the congress or does not attend the session for which (s)he has been scheduled, a penalty may incur.
  16. If your research has been granted any commercial or institutional support, you will be asked to list these under Disclosures in the submission process. Please prepare a one-sentence statement for this purpose.
  17. If you apply for a bursary or for the tournament, remember to upload the necessary documents. Your application will be only regarded if all documents have been submitted.
  18. If your abstract has been accepted as poster presentation, you will be asked to prepare a poster in electronic format (ePoster). Guidelines will follow based on acceptance of your abstract. Presenting authors will present their posters in e-poster sessions during the congress.

Abstract topic: Please select the category under which the abstract should be reviewed after consulting the list of topics (see on the right). 

If you are an Invited Speaker and wish to submit an abstract for your lecture, please send your abstract also via the abstract submission platform on MyEAN. There will be a submission form dedicated to your lecture available. If you have any further questions, please contact vienna2021@ean.org.
