EAN 2024: Guidelines for Abstract Submission

  1. Abstracts must be submitted via an active MyEAN profile. Abstracts submitted via fax or email will not be accepted.
  2. All co-authors' affiliations must be stated during the abstract submission. By completing the abstract submission, submitters give full consent on behalf of all co-authors to provide their data.
  3. Abstracts must be submitted and presented in English (UK). Proofread your abstract before submission.
  4. Abstracts must contain new and original information not published elsewhere prior to 28 June 2024, 18:30 CEST. See Embargo Policy.
  5. Abstracts must be structured under the given headings:
    - Introduction - State specific objective of study
    - Methods
    - Results
    - Conclusion
    - Disclosures - In the interest of transparency, disclose all relationships/activities/interests related to your manuscript
  6. If your research has been granted any commercial or institutional support, you will be asked to list these under Disclosures in the submission process. Prepare a one-sentence statement for this purpose.
  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 for final publication. Tables must be submitted as a separate graphic file. Tables and images do not affect word count.
  10. 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.
  11. Authors must indicate preference of presentation type: oral, poster or oral, poster, or poster virtual. The Programme Committee will decide the presentation type upon review.
  12. Once an abstract is accepted, the presenting author must register for the congress. A penalty may be incurred if the presenting author, indicated at submission, does not register for the congress, or does not attend the session for which (s)he has been scheduled. Not registering in time risks the omission of your accepted abstract from the Congress Programme.
  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 abstracts(at) 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 the status of abstract review. Make sure to include the abstract ID in all communication with EAN Head Office.
  15. Should you wish to correct an abstract already submitted, email abstracts(at) and make sure to include the abstract ID in all communication with EAN Head Office. Abstracts that are submitted or in review cannot be edited in the submission platform. After the 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.
  16. If your abstract has been accepted as a poster presentation, you will be asked to prepare a poster in electronic format (ePoster). Guidelines will follow based on the acceptance of your abstract. Presenting authors will present their posters in ePoster sessions during the congress.
