Abstract Guidelines

The abstract should have a structured format with the following headings:

      • Title and authors’ information
      • Introduction
      • Objectives
      • Method
      • Results
      • Discussion
      • Conclusion

Paragraphs are justified (straight-edged) on both left and right. Use single-line spacing and leave a line gap between paragraphs.  The abstract should be written in English.

The ABSTRACT TITLE must be appropriate and concise. Avoid using abbreviations in the title.

AUTHORS – FIRST (PRESENTING) AUTHOR– The first author will be the presenting author followed by co-authors.  Include highest degrees only, name of institutions, and e-mail address of the presented author. Please omit names of departments/faculties and addresses. All correspondence on the abstract will be through email to the first author.

ABSTRACT CONTENT: Abstract content  must not exceed 250 words. Do not include graphs, tables, images or references in the abstract.  Define each abbreviation the first time it is used in the abstract by placing what it stands for in parentheses.

It is the author’s responsibility to submit an abstract with correct spelling and grammar. The Scientific Committee, however, reserves the right to edit the abstract if it has significant spelling and grammatical mistakes.

Submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee. The scientific committee has the right to change the selected category of abstract accordingly. The review process is confidential and the decision is final.

Late submissions will NOT be considered.
