  • The first author listed for each abstract serves as the presenting author and as the primary contact for all correspondence regarding the abstract, unless otherwise specified under the “Presenter Information” section of the online abstract submission system.
  • The presenting author must be one of the co-authors listed on the submitted abstract.
  • The presenting author is responsible for the following:
    • Ensuring that all authors have read the abstract and agreed to be co-authors. Failure to get approval from all authors will result in rejection of the abstract.

    • is responsible for submission of the abstract in accordance with the rules, and

back to top

General Guidelines

  • The abstract must address scientific questions, detail clinical observations, or contain primary scientific data.
  • No revisions can be made after the abstract submission deadline, unless requested by the reviewers.
  • Abstracts generally may not be withdrawn once submitted. If you prefer that your abstract be withdrawn if not accepted for any presentation at the EuPFI conference, you must indicate so during online submission.
  • The presentation at the EuPFI conference must reflect the submitted abstract. In particular, the abstract title, authorship, and scientific content of the presentation at the conference must match the submitted abstract, although updates on results may be added.
  • Abstracts should be written in clear and concise English, so that reviewers are able to focus solely on the scientific merits of the submission. We encourage non-English-speaking authors to have their abstracts checked for grammar and spelling prior to submission.

Preferred Presentation Format

During submission, submitters must choose the formats in which they would be willing to present/publish their abstract. These choices must be made at the time of submission and cannot be changed after the review committee has reached its decision.
  • Authors should select whether they prefer oral or poster presentation. Abstracts noted with a preference for poster presentation will NOT be considered for oral presentation, regardless of score.
  • Second, in the event that an abstract is not chosen for oral presentation, it can still be chosen for poster presentation. Authors who state a preference for oral presentation must decide whether they would accept poster presentation. Authors may either present a poster or request that the abstract be immediately withdrawn. (Please note that declining to have your abstract considered for poster presentation does not improve its chances of being accepted as an oral presentation. This option should be selected primarily by authors who would not be willing to present a poster.)
  • Finally, in the event the abstract is NOT selected for oral or poster presentation, it must be noted that their abstract will NOT be published on the EuPFI website.

Requesting Special Consideration

  • Special consideration may be requested by explaining the special circumstances in the text box provided during the online abstract submission process.

The information provided will be carefully evaluated by the reviewers.
  • Failure of authors to request special consideration for an abstract, including content that has been published or presented at a major national or international meeting (‘major’ is defined as 1,000 or more attendees) or in a press release published before the EuPFI conference, will result in exclusion from the program.

  • Abstracts will be evaluated and scored solely on their scientific merits.
  • Incomplete abstracts will not be reviewed.
