Abstract submission deadline
All presenters must register to attend the Congress. Acceptance of abstracts into the programme is contingent upon receipt of the registration fee.
In order to attract the best abstracts to the EfCCNa Congress we are awarding three prizes for the best written abstract and one prize for the best poster.
The three best abstract awards will be judged by the Scientific Committee prior to the Congress. These prizes will cover free congress registration for the 2023 Congress (worth approx. EUR 450).
The best poster award will be judged by the congress delegates and will provide up to EUR 500 to cover travel or accommodation costs associated with the 2023 Congress.
All submitted abstracts will go through a blind peer-review carried out by an international reviewing committee.
Reviewers will give rankings from 1 to 5 points, taking into consideration the following five criteria:
After giving the rankings, reviewers will submit the recommended presentation style (oral or poster).
Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent to the submitting (corresponding) author on or after 1 June 2021.
Please note that only the corresponding author will receive mail concerning the abstract and is responsible for informing all co-authors of the status of the abstract.
Instructions for oral and poster presenters will be sent to the corresponding author in July 2021.
Please note: All presenters must register to attend the 9th EfCCNa Congress. In line with the EfCCNa policy; fee, honorarium or expense payment will not be provided for the presenters.
