Abstract Guidelines

Guidelines for Preparation

A title that clearly indicates the nature of the investigation needs to be provided.
Abbreviations should be avoided in titles, but may be used in the text if they are defined at first usage.
The authors’ names (full first names, family names) and places of work (institution, city, country) must be shown.

The abstract should be as informative as possible:

  1. State the specific objective of the study
  2. State the methods used, if pertinent
  3. Summarize the results obtained
  4. State the conclusions reached

A maximum of 10 authors can be added during submission of your abstract. In case there are more than 10 authors, please use a group name.
Please ensure that your abstract does not contain spelling, grammatical or scientific errors, as it will be reproduced exactly as submitted.

Guidelines for Submission

Abstracts have to be submitted electronically via the congress website.

  • Abstracts sent by mail, email or fax will not be accepted.
  • The length of the abstract should not exceed 350 words including author details and headers.
  • The abstract should be structured as indicated in the guidelines. One figure can be included.
  • Abstracts can be saved in draft status and completed before the deadline.
  • The submission system will generate a temporary submission number that must be used in all correspondence. If you do not receive this number immediately after your submission by email, your abstract has not been registered.

  • Choose one of the topics listed below which best corresponds with the content of your abstract. If you find that your abstract fits two topics equally well, you can choose both.
  • Tick the relevant box to indicate your preferred method of presentation: oral presentation or poster. Note that, in general, only the highest ranked abstracts will be selected for oral presentation. Therefore, a preference for oral presentation cannot always be accommodated. If you would be happy to present all of your accepted abstracts orally, feel free to tick “oral” for all of them. Only if you really prefer presentation as a poster, the poster box should be ticked. A preference for poster presentation will always be complied with (if the abstract is accepted).

If you need to withdraw your abstract, a written statement reflecting the reasons for this decision needs to be sent to fnm2018@cpo-­hanser.de not later than mid of June 2018.

Thereafter, ESNM cannot make any changes in its printed matters.
