How to use the online abstract submission system

1. Submitting an abstract

A. Important Information

  1. An abstract template was attached to your registration email. - This is a Microsoft Word file which is designed to ensure that your abstract is prepared in the right way for publication. Please save this template file to your PC’s hard drive and use it when you prepare your abstract. Alternatively you can download the template file here.
  2. If you are submitting more than one abstract or abstracts for more than one symposium you can use the same email address and password for each abstract. Your user account is valid for all conferences/symposias.
  3. Abstracts MUST be submitted using the template form provided. Each abstract must fit within the abstract template and use the Arial font in size 11. Please do not use scientific symbols within the title and the text of your abstract. Please store your abstract in the Microsoft Word format DOC. Do not use DOCX !
  4. Your abstract must be written in English and must not exceed 300 words.
  5. The abstracts will be selected by a scientific committee, preference being given to those thematically related to one of the sessions of the program.
  6. The accepted abstracts will be printed and distributed to the participants of the congress together with the documents of the meeting. A PDF file containing all abstracts will be published on the Falk website prior to the meeting.
  7. The authors will receive notification about acceptance and further instructions within 6 weeks after the submission deadline.

B. The Submission Process

  1. Open the template file and enter your abstract into it. Save it and make a note of its saved location.
  2. Log in to the submission system when your abstract is completed and ready to send. To log in, enter your email address and the password you chose when you registered with the system.
  3. When you click the “log in” button you will be taken to an overview screen where all available conferences are listed. Click on the desired conference and you will be transferred to a screen from which the submission process starts. Please read the instructions on this screen carefully. If you have not yet submitted an abstract to the system you should click the link that says “Click here to submit a new abstract”.
  4. Submitting an abstract is a multi-step process. Each step asks several questions:

2. Amending a submission

You may wish to change your answers to some of the questions on the submission form, or even to change the abstract file itself. 

  1. Log in to the submission system and go to the abstract of the respective conference.
  2. You will see a list of the abstracts that you have submitted. Click on the abstract that you wish to change.
  3. The process of amending an abstract is the same as the original submission process, except that the submission form will be automatically filled in with the answers that you gave previously – you don’t have to change an answer if you don’t want to. 
  4. If you want to change your abstract file you can click the “Browse” button to locate the revised file on your PC’s hard disk, then click “Next” to send it to the abstract system. If you don’t want to change the file, just press “Next” to bypass this step. 
  5. When you reach the final step and press “Finish” you will be sent an email confirming that your abstract has been amended – provided you have answered all the required questions.

3. Withdrawing an abstract

If you want to withdraw an abstract please click on the cross of the selected abstract on the abstract overview page of the respective conference.
