- Submitting an abstract is a multi-step process. Each step asks several questions. Some questions are marked ‘required’ and you will not be able to complete your submission until these questions have been answered
- If you have to stop part way through the process your submission can still be saved and submitted, however it will be marked as ‘Incomplete’ until you complete the all required sections of the form. When you log in again you can click on your incomplete abstract and resume submission
You may wish to change your submission. You can do this at any time up to the deadline; any changes made after the deadline will not be valid. To amend a submission please follow the below steps:
- Log in to the abstract submission system.
- You will see a list of the abstracts that you have submitted. Click on the abstract that you wish to change.
- Amending an abstract is just the same as the original submission process except that the online form will be automatically filled in with the answers that you gave previously. To alter changes in the body of your abstract you will need to make the changes in a template and overwrite your original submission by uploading your most recent file. You don’t have to change an answer if you don’t want to.
- When you reach the final step and press ‘Finish’ you will be sent an email confirming that your abstract has been amended.
If you have any queries about the submission process or you want to withdraw an abstract please contact the abstract manager, Aida de Heras.
