Abstract Submission

Whether you prefer to present your work in an oral platform presentation or as an ePoster (including our new virtual ePoster format) this is the ideal time to share your latest study results with our enthusiastic neurology community. 

Important points to remember: 

  1. Make sure you have an up-to-date MyEAN profile (go here to login or create an account)

    • Disclosures - In the interest of transparency, disclose all relationships/activities/interests related to your manuscript
  6. All abbreviations used must be written out at first use.
  7. Simplify complex mathematical formulas. 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.
  8. A maximum of 3 images can be inserted per abstract. The maximum file size and resolution is 2 MB and 300dpi per figure. Images can only be submitted in JPG or PNG format. The EAN may adjust tables or figures to fit files for final publication. Tables must be submitted as a separate graphic file. Tables and images do not affect word count.
  9. Abstract titles may contain a maximum of 25 words and 120 characters. Abstract text cannot exceed 250 words in total and 1500 characters per section.
  10. Authors must indicate preference of presentation type: oral, poster or oral, poster, or poster virtual. The Programme Committee will decide presentation type upon review.
  11. Presenting authors must have active MyEAN user accounts under the submitted email address. Every presenting author can present a maximum of 3 abstracts. The submission system will alert the submitter if the selected presenting author has already been assigned 3 abstracts.
  12. Within 1 hour after submission, the abstract submitter will receive a confirmation e-mail with a unique abstract ID. Include the abstract ID in all communication with the EAN Head Office. If you have not received a submission confirmation e-mail, email The abstract submitter is responsible for informing all authors about the stage and status of the abstract. In the submission system, Stage is the stage of submission and Status is status of abstract review.
  13. Should you wish to correct to an abstract already submitted, email Abstracts that are submitted or in review cannot be edited. 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.
  14. Once an abstract is accepted, the presenting author must register for the congress. If the presenting author, indicated at submission, does not register to the congress or does not attend the session for which (s)he has been scheduled, a penalty may incur.
  15. 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.
  16. If you apply for a bursary or for the tournaments basic or clinical, remember to upload the necessary documents. Your application will be only considered if all documents have been submitted and reviewed.
  17. 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.
