  7. All abbreviations used must be written out at first use.
  8. 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.
  9. A maximum of 3 images can be inserted per abstract. Images can only be submitted in JPG or PNG format. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. Within 1 hour after submission, the abstract submitter will receive a confirmation e-mail with a unique abstract ID. If you have not received a submission confirmation e-mail, email Make sure to include the abstract ID in all communication with EAN Head Office. The abstract submitter is responsible for informing all authors about the stage and status of the abstract.
