Abstracts submission guidelines
Part of the programme is dedicated to selected abstracts because we want to ensure that the best and most current research is presented. A large panel of international moderators reviews abstracts so that every abstract receives at least 3 reviewer scores.
Abstract submission guidelines: Make sure your abstract is in, on time and in the right format by following these simple steps:
1: Your abstract should be no more than 250 words and should be in English.
2: Keep your title concise and informative and only use capital letters for the beginning of a sentence or an acronym/name. DO NOT USE CAPITAL LETTERS FOR YOUR ENTIRE TITLE.
3: List all authors’ name in full and it is compulsory to identify a presenting author. Please note the email address supplied when you submit your abstract will be used for all correspondence pertaining to the abstract.
4: Addresses should be in the following format: Group, Department/Institute, Organisation, Town/City, Postcode/Zip, Country
5: Do not include acknowledgements in your abstracts – these will be included in your word count.
6: Select the subject area that best fits your abstract as this is a guide for review allocation.
7: Please ensure that the email provided when submitting the abstract will still be valid a couple of months before the event as we will need to contact you about the outcome of your submission
Posters should be made in a single A0 size (841mm wide x 1189mm high), portrait orientation. If your poster does not match these dimensions we cannot guarantee that it will fit the poster boards. Each poster will be allocated a number with your notification that you must bring with you.
What happens after you have submitted?
Your abstract will be sent for review and you will be notified of the outcome by email a few weeks before the congress. Please note the notification email will be sent to the email given when you submitted your abstract. If you have not received notification by end of April, please contact the SFTCG Office firstname.lastname@example.org immediately
