Submission Rules
Steps How to Submit an Abstract

Submission Rules

Participants are invited to submit original scientific abstracts for oral and poster presentation provided that the abstracts have not been previously published as full paper. If you have submitted your paper to a journal for publication, please ensure that the publication date will be after the congress.

Note that abstracts presented previously at national or international meetings may be submitted providing this is declared, but that we particularly welcome work not previously presented at international meeting.

Authors are requested to conform to guidelines for submission of abstracts. Abstracts not conforming to the guidelines will not be referred for review. The abstracts must be submitted in English and must also be presented in that language.

Abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of experts and, if accepted, may be selected for oral or poster presentation (or may be rejected).

Submission of an abstract constitutes a formal commitment by the author to present the abstract in the session and at the time decided upon by the FNM scientific committee.

Any change in the presenting author needs to be communicated in the form of a written statement. If the original presenting author is unable to present the abstract, it is that person’s responsibility to ensure that one of the co-authors takes over this role. The registration fee for the presenting author will not be waived but is considered valid for his/her replacement.

Notification of acceptance or rejection will be mailed to the submitting author at the e-mail address by 2 Jul 2024. Detailed information, guidelines, and recommendations for oral or poster presentation, as well as time allotment, date, hour and venue, will be sent in advance to authors whose abstracts are accepted for presentation.

Registration to the congress is compulsory to be able to present the abstract and get it published in the journal and must be completed by 30 Jul 2024.

Conflict of Interest

Abstract submission must be accompanied by a declaration of any potential conflict of interest for all authors, since it is in the intent of FNM to provide high-quality sessions focused on educational content that is free from commercial influence or bias.

Steps How to Submit an Abstract

✧ Abstracts may be submitted only electronically by using the online form.

✧ Abstracts sent by mail, email or fax will not be accepted.

✧ The length of the abstract should not exceed 350 words.

✧ The abstract text should be structured in 4 paragraphs: objective, method, results and conclusion. One table or one figure can be included.

✧ Abstract can be saved in draft status and completed before the deadline.

✧ The submission system will generate a temporary submission number that must be used in all correspondence. If you do not receive this number immediately after your submission, your abstract has not been registered.

✧ Choose one primary topic listed on the website which best corresponds to the content of your abstract.

✧ Tick the relevant box corresponding to your preferred method of presentation. Note that the FNM scientific committee may or may not consider this choice.

✧ Please check the box “Basic”, “Translational” or “Clinical” that best applies to your abstract.

✧ Please ensure that your abstract does not contain spelling, grammatical or scientific errors, as it will be reproduced exactly as submitted.

✧ If you need to withdraw your abstract, a written statement reflecting the reasons for this decision needs to be sent to not later than 30 Jul 2024. Thereafter, FNM cannot make any changes to its printed matters.
