  • Background: State the study aim/objectives, hypothesis tested, or description of the problem. Should explain why the abstract is important or novel or provide context/explanation for doing the study.
  • Methods: Methods for testing and data analysis (specific statistical analyses conducted, specific population studied, selection and origin of specimens evaluated, and standard used for comparison).
  • Results: Specific results with appropriate statistical analysis. Describe your main findings with data. Statements such as “to be completed” or “to be presented” are not acceptable.
  • Conclusion: Explain your main findings and why they are important. Conclusions should be supported by the findings. Concluding statements such as “the results will be discussed” are not acceptable

  • Experiential/Observational summary abstracts should not exceed 350 words and can include one table or one figure separate from the abstract.

  • Project: Description of the project

    If you need assistance to attend the meeting, you may apply for a scholarship. Priority will be given to students and young investigators with a focus on those attending from lower and middle income countries. Resources are limited so scholarships will be determined based on quality of your submission and description of need as well as the factors above. In order to apply, you will need to write a short statement explaining why you need support from the Congress. You can SAVE your work and return to upload documents at a later time (prior to the abstract deadline).
