Presentation method preferences will be taken into account during the review and program development process.
FORMAT & CONTENT GUIDELINES FOR SUBMITTING ABSTRACTS TO INMC 2019
Abstracts must be submitted via the website.
The Conference Secretariat is not able to accept abstracts submitted via email or fax. When submitting your abstract please follow the instructions listed below.
ABSTRACT FORMAT GUIDELINES?
The purpose of the abstract is to define the precise subject of the presentation to an audience.
Title: the abstract title should be a maximum of 140 characters, informative and contain major keywords.
Authors: On the online abstract submission form, it is required to enter the authors’ first names and surnames (indicating the presenting author) including the names of institutions. Do not include degrees or professional titles (e.g. Dr, Prof, etc,).
Leave a line between sections but do not indent.
Use standard abbreviations only. Within the body of the abstract, when using abbreviations spell out the name in full at the first mention and follow with the abbreviation in the parenthesis. Abbreviations may be used in the title, provided the name in full is outlined in the body of the abstract.
Keywords: add keywords that best matches with the content of the abstract.
ABSTRACT CONTENT GUIDELINES?
- Abstract content should be no more than one-page, inclusive blank spaces, and punctuation. The minimum size of the abstract is 750 characters. Abstracts exceeding the word limit will be returned for resubmission.
- Abstracts must be submitted in clear English with accurate grammar and spelling of a quality suitable for publication.
- The anstract should state the problem being addressed, main findings and principal conclusions. If necessary, references should be minimally cited in the body of the abstract.
- Graphs and tables may be included in the abstract, provided they add value to the content and remain within the bounds of the template. Graphs/tables can be added as images (.jpg) or tables can be entered directly; max. 1 image can be added per abstract.
- Compliance with the specifications is imperative. Any abstract that does not comply with these specifications will not be accepted for review and will be returned to you by the Conference Organizers for resubmission.
EVALUATION CRITERIA AND REVIEW PROCESS?
Abstracts will be independently reviewed and scored by a minimum of 3 reviewers on November 9 – November 19, using the following criteria:
- Clearly written
- Internally consistent
- Indicates aims or hypothesis of the research/paper
- Describes appropriate methods/methodology
- Describes relevant results/describes main findings
- Draws valid conclusions from results/findings
- Is relevant to the Conference audience
Reviewer scores and comments will be strongly considered when developing the Conference program and offering presentation slots.
POLICIES & REQUIREMENTS ?
GENERAL POLICIES & REQUIREMENTS FOR THE SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS
‘Encore’ abstracts previously accepted for presentation and/or publication are also accepted. In this case, authors must supply information regarding the original presentation, indicating the name of the meeting and publication number.
Abstracts containing updated data may also be submitted to INMC 2019. In this case, additional information must be given specifying clearly which new data will be presented, for example, the final analysis of primary endpoint(s) or intermediate statistical analysis. Authors must at the same time also supply information regarding the original presentation for identification and comparison purposes, indicating the name of the meeting, year and publication number. Violation of this policy will result in a rejection of the submitted abstract.
Should any similarities to prior presentations or publications exist, these must be explained in a covering letter, citing the INMC 2019 abstract submission number, title and first author, to the INMC Program Manager by e-mail.
All abstracts must be prepared according to the guidelines provided. Submissions will be returned to the author without review if not in the correct format and must be resubmitted immediately in the correct format to be reviewed and considered for inclusion in the program.
The presenting author only must submit the abstract.
The presenting author will be required to register and pay for the conference to ensure their abstract(s) are included in the final program and abstract publication. Deadline for author registration is December 14, 2018.
Do not resubmit an abstract for any reason other than a notified submission error. If you do not receive a confirmation email with a receipt number confirming that your abstract was successfully uploaded, please contact the Conference Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is the responsibility of the presenting author to ensure that the abstract is submitted correctly. After an author has submitted an abstract, he/she must check the submission, which will be converted to a PDF file, to ensure the document has been uploaded correctly.
Abstracts will be reviewed by the appointed Conference Abstract Reviewers.
Faxed or mailed hard-copy abstracts or abstracts sent on disc/CD will not be accepted. If you are unable to submit via the website, please contact the Conference Secretariat by email: email@example.com.
