  • The text of the abstract should briefly state:
    • Objectives (Indicate the purpose of the study or the hypothesis that was tested);
    • Methods (Include the setting for the study, the subjects, the diagnosis or intervention and the type of statistical analysis; if references are needed, they should be given in the text);

    • Conclusion (Briefly discuss the data and emphasize the significance of the results). 


As long as the abstract has not been submitted, it remains in "Draft" status, which means modifications can be made until the abstract submission deadline. A confirmation of receipt will be sent via e-mail upon submission of an abstract.
