System requirements
You need a screen resolution of at least 1024 x 768 to use the abstract submission properly.
You need Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher to enter the abstract submission system.

The size of the abstract is limited to 3,000 characters (this includes title, body of abstract, spaces, tables and graphics).

The submission programme will automatically calculate the size of your abstract and will not allow submissions that do not fit in the size requirements.
The abstract has a fixed structure and contains:

The first letter of the title will automatically begin with a capital letter. Do type the abstract in small letters, except for abbreviations. Do NOT type the full title in capital letters.
The title should clearly define the topic. Do not identify your institution in the title.

Type full last name and first name of all authors, only omitting any titles, degrees and institutional affiliations.

Type the name of the Institution, Department, City and Country. If co-authors are from the same institution, the programme will automatically copy all information into the next boxes, so that you do not have to type all information again. If co-authors are not from the same institution you can edit each box you prefer.

Body of the abstract
The following headings are the format for the body of your abstract submission:

  • Introduction & Objectives
  • Materials & Methods
  • Results
  • Conclusion

State the objective of the study, describe the material and methods, summarize the results presenting sufficient details to support the conclusions reached (it is not acceptable to state: “The   results will be discussed”). Use numbers for numbers and only very well-known abbreviations e.g., ml, kg, MRI. If you must use other abbreviations, you must explain the first time it appears. You can use the special keys to insert tables, pictures or specific characters.

Proof reading
Verify that your abstract is correct and read the proof carefully that will be automatically shown after you have inserted all data. Keep a printout for your own records. When you come to step 7, you will get a preview of your abstract which you can printout directly.

Do you wish further information and advice?
If you have never written an abstract for conference previously, or if you feel unsure about the steps to take, we provide you with an educational tool that will not only answer the practical questions that you may have, but will give you confidence in composing and submitting your abstract. If you are already an accomplished presenter then the tool will inform you about the required EAUN abstract format. The tool will describe the key components of an abstract, offer practical suggestions for optimising the key messages of your work, provide general advice on abstract preparation and tips for increasing the likelihood of your abstract being accepted for presentation. Go to the abstract tool.
