Abstract Submission

The submission has been closed.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, we would like to thank you for submitting your work for presentation. The online submission and evaluation process will be administered by Kenes M+ Organising Secretariat.

Please take a moment to read the guidelines below before proceeding to submit your abstract.

Extended Abstract Submission Deadline is Thursday, April 11, 2024 (23:59 GMT)




Please take a moment to read the below guidelines before submitting your abstract.

  • Only one abstract from each presenting author is possible.
  • All abstracts must be written in English.
  • All abstracts must be submitted online through the abstract submission system. Abstracts that are sent via e-mail will not be included in the abstract review process.
  • Use acronyms only when necessary and define all abbreviations and concepts in your abstract at first use.
  • Always make sure to check the final abstract with the system’s preview function before submission and edit or replace as necessary. It is the author’s responsibility to submit an accurate abstract. Any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author.
  • The submitting and presenting authors are required to ensure that all co-authors are aware and approve the content of the abstract before the submission.
  • Only studies based on new and not previously published results can be submitted.
  • All abstracts will initially be reviewed and will either be accepted or rejected by the Scientific Committee. The Organising and Scientific Committees reserve the right to determine whether an abstract submission is accepted as an oral or a poster presentation.
  • Only the abstracts of presenting authors who have completed their registration and paid their registration fees by the registration deadline for abstract presenters (May 27, 2024) will be included in the Scientific Program.
  • Withdrawal of abstracts is only accepted if notified in writing and subsequently confirmed by the Organising Secretariat.
  • Since there will be no editing process on the abstracts, the authors are requested to avoid any typing errors, mis ordering of authors and/or incorrect institutional labeling etc.


Step 1 / 10: Presentation Options

Topics:  A main category that is relevant to your abstract must be selected during the submission process.

Presentation type: Please choose one of the following:

Oral or Poster

Poster Only

The Scientific Committee reserves the right to change the presentation type according to the requirements of the scientific program.

Step 2 / 10: Institution Information

Institution(s): The institution(s) of the authors should be indicated fully with the “department” and “institution” names while avoiding any abbreviations such as Dept., Inst., Hosp., etc. Please include the City and Country for each institution. (For the US, please enter both state and country in that order).

The institution, city, and country should be written in lower case while the initials of each word are written in capitals.

Enter each affiliation only once: i.e., if there are 5 authors and 3 of whom are from the same affiliation and 2 of whom are from another, you will have 2 institutions, NOT 5. However, if there are 2 or more departments at the same institution represented, they can be entered separately.

If any of the authors have more than one affiliation, enter both affiliations in a compounded style as one affiliation: i.e., if there are 5 authors and 2 of whom are from the same affiliation (Institute A), 2 of whom are from another (Institute B), and 1 of whom is from both affiliations (Institutes A and B), you will have 3 institutions, NOT 5 or NOT 2. (First institution: Institute A, second one: Institute B, and the third one: Institute A & Institute B). Include the City and Country for each affiliation.

 Step 3 / 10: Author Information

Author(s): First, middle, and last names of all the authors must be fully indicated correctly and in the right order. Please pay attention to matching the institutions to the right authors, and make sure that you select the “presenting author” correctly.

Step 4 / 10: Presenting Author’s Information

Presenting Author Information: Please enter the presenting author’s contact information

Step 5 / 10: Abstract Title

Abstract Title: Abstract title can contain a maximum of 150 characters.

Step 6 / 10: Abstract

Abstract Text: Abstract text should not exceed 250 words. The title of the abstract, authors’ names, institutions, and keywords are not included in this limit, and these should not be entered in this section.
