Oral presentation and Poster formats
Oral presentations should be up to 10 minutes in length.
The poster should be prepared as a portrait (100cm wide x 150cm long).
Data Blitz format
For the first time, ECP19 will enable presentations in a Data Blitz format, in which authors will present their work in rapid-pace form. Presenters will be given up to 5 minutes during the data blitz oral session to report the main findings of their study. During the submissions process, authors will have the option to indicate whether they would like their abstract to be considered for the Data Blitz Session. Among all submissions, the Scientific Committee will select the most interesting abstracts which will be scheduled into the Data Blitz session. The remaining abstracts (not selected for Data Blitz format) would be switched for presentation as individual posters.
Authors of submissions selected for the Data Blitz session, should prepare up to 4 slides containing: (1) the title, the names of all authors, their affiliations and contacts, and any acknowledgements/funding sources (first slide), (2) an overview of the study background and the key question/s being addressed (second slide), (3) brief information about the research design used to address the research question (third slide), and (4) main findings/conclusions (fourth slide).
Symposium and Invited symposium
Symposium should be 75 minutes in length and encompass presentations from a maximum of 4 speakers on a common issue. Besides a chairperson, a symposium may optionally also include a discussant. In planning a symposium, a chairperson should allow sufficient time for audience questions and discussion. The chairperson is responsible for joint submission of the symposium summary as well as the abstracts of individual submissions.
Symposium submissions must include (1) names, affiliations and contact information (e-mail) for the chairperson, all presenters, and discussant (optional), (2) a symposium title, topic, and summary of no more than 150 words, and (3) titles and individual abstracts (150 words max) for each submission to be included in the symposium.
Number of Submissions
There is no limit to the number of abstracts an author may submit.
However, anyone submitting an abstract may be the presenting author on only one oral presentation. There is no limit to the number of first-authored poster abstract submissions.
If it is necessary to withdraw a submission, please notify the Scientific Committee as soon as possible.
