Abstracts: Policies and Requirements

The ISA2015 Scientific Program Committee invites the submission of abstracts on original work. Abstracts can be submitted for consideration for an oral, mini-oral or electronic poster presentation. All successful abstracts will be published in the Congress App on the tablet to be given to the Symposium delegates, and will be published on the ISA2015 website. Presenting authors must be registrants at the Symposium. All abstracts must be submitted online via the Symposium website using the online submission form.

General Policies and Requirements for the Submission of Abstracts

  • As the IAS organizes a scientific meeting every 3 years, ‘encore’ abstracts previously accepted for presentation and/or publication are also accepted. In this case, authors must supply information regarding the original presentation, indicating the name of the meeting and publication number.
  • Abstracts containing updated data may also be submitted to ISA2015. In this case, additional information must be given specifying clearly which new data will be presented, for example final analysis of primary endpoint(s) or intermediate statistical analysis. Authors must at the same time also supply information regarding the original presentation for identification and comparison purposes, indicating the name of the meeting, year and publication number. Violation of this policy will result in a rejection of the submitted abstract.
  • Should any similarities to prior presentations or publications exist, these must be explained in a covering letter, citing the ISA2015 abstract submission number, title and first author, to the ISA Congress Programme Manager by E-mail.
  • All abstracts must be prepared according to the guidelines provided. Submissions will be returned to the author without review if not in the correct format and must be resubmitted immediately in the correct format to be reviewed and considered for inclusion in the program.
  • The presenting author only must submit the abstract.
  • The presenting author will be required to register and pay for the conference to ensure their abstract(s) are included in the final program and abstract publication. After abstract submission, presenters will receive a link to register for the special fee. Deadline for author registration is 1 February, 2015.
  • Do not resubmit an abstract for any reason other than a notified submission error. If you do not receive a confirmation email with a receipt number confirming that your abstract was successfully uploaded, please contact the Symposium organization [email protected].
  • It is the responsibility of the presenting author to ensure that the abstract is submitted correctly. After an author has submitted an abstract, he/she must check the submission, which will be converted to a PDF file, to ensure the document has been uploaded correctly.
  • Abstracts will be reviewed by the appointed Symposium Abstract Reviewers.
  • Faxed or mailed hard-copy abstracts or abstracts sent on disc/CD will not be accepted. If you are unable to submit via the website, please contact the Symposium Organization:
