A. General conditions

1. Abstracts are required for all oral presentations and posters.

2. Abstracts must be submitted by 20 October 2022 (23:59 GMT)

3. Abstracts must be submitted in English.

4. Withdrawal of abstracts is only accepted if notified in writing and subsequently confirmed by the ICSE-11 2023 Conference Secretariat.

B. Abstract contents

1. The abstract word limit is max. 300 words per abstract.

2. The title should be as brief as possible but long enough to clearly indicate the nature of the study.

3. Names of authors may not be listed in the title or abstract text, as a “blind” review process will be used. You will be asked to enter the name(s) of author(s) and their institution(s), when you submit your abstract online.

4. The abstract needs to belong to one of the topics listed above.

5. All abbreviations must be defined in first use.

6. Statements such as “results will be discussed” or “data will be presented” cannot be accepted.

7. Illustration: One figure/table/photo may be added to an abstract. 
If the word count is not reduced adequately, the ICSE-11 2023 organisers reserve the right to omit the illustration from the published abstract.

8. References: A maximum of five litterature references may be added at the end of the abstract text. For each reference, you can only state the three first author’s names, titel of the paper and bibliography (e.g. Douam F, Hrebikova G, Albrecht YE et al. Single-cell tracking of flavivirus RNA uncovers species-specific interactions with the immune system dictating disease outcome. Nat Commun 2017;8:14781.).

9. Generic names must be used for all references to products or companies. The brand name can be inserted as a reference at the bottom of the abstract page. Papers containing brand names/company names in the abstract text (i.e. not in a reference at the bottom of the page) may be rejected for this reason only. ICSE-11 2023 reserves the right to replace any brand name with a generic name without further notice.

10. Only studies based on new and not-previously published results can be submitted.

C. Reviewing

1. The scientific committee will review the abstract.

2. Notification of acceptance or rejection of the abstract will be sent directly to all presenting authors (and submitters) by the end of october 2022.

3. Please verify that your email address (submitter and presenting author) is correct, as it will be used for contacting you after the review process.

For all enquiries regarding the abstract submission, please contact the Conference Secretariat at: info@cap-partner.eu
