Abstract Submission

Abstract submission has been terminated – many thanks for all your contributions for the scientific programme of the ESC 2016. For late submissions we still welcome abstracts from all topics to be included in Late Breaking News sessions!

From 2016 we distinguish 3 forms of presentation

  1. oral presentation (as usual 8 mins + 2 mins on site) platform preferred
  2. e-poster presentation (as usual presence 2 mins + 3 mins on site) e-poster preferred
  3. NEW: virtual e-poster presentation (virtually on the internet – for authors who can not attend in person) virtual e-poster only

What does "virtual – e-poster" mean? It is a new way for those participants/groups who are not able (neither themselves nor their co-authors) to travel to Venice and join the meeting in person for whatever reasons but want to introduce their scientic work during this most important international meeting in the stroke field and see it published in our prestigious journal Cerebrovascular Diseases!

What you need to do is

  • to submit your abstract as usual by means of the abstract form
  • select the virtual e-poster only form and
  • register at the 50% reduced registration rate

After review by members of the scientific board of the ESC – as usual – and acceptance for presentation you should prepare and submit a pdf poster presentation – as usual for all e-posters – and,
if you want, add an introduction of 2 minutes with an audio or video selfie which you produced with your mobile or video camera! This will be discussed during the guided poster session by the chair and tour audience.

In the course of the submission process you will also be able to apply for a ESRF Grant (note that presenting author must be <35 years).

Please note that you must release the copyright (online e-book and e-book of the journal "Cerebrovascular Diseases" / KARGER, and, possibly, supplement of the journal with all e-posters, as well as possibly webdocumentary).

After successful submission you will receive a confirmation e-mail with a request for registration of the presenting abstract author, depending on the desired form of presentation (personally on site or virtually on the internet). Please indicate your abstract registration reference numbers on this occasion.

Abstract submission is possible until 17 December 2015.

Subsequently, all submissions will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee until 12 January 2016. Please specify presenting author latest by that deadline.

All authors will be informed about the result of the review process of the ESRF Grant applications by 31 January 2016.

Please note that the registration fee (early bird fee) for the presenting author must be paid by 15 February 2016 (early bird deadline). Otherwise, the related and accepted abstract will not be published!

If you register and pay immediately, selected Late Breaking News abstracts can be submitted until 18 March 2016. These contributions are reviewed by the Programme Committee and will be published in the journal "Cerebrovascular Diseases" / KARGER as well.

NB: Authors of not accepted contributions will be reimbursed the participation fee minus a processing fee of 25 EUR, if cancellation is made before the expiry of the official cancellation deadline (18 March 2016).
