Abstract submission

Abstract Policies:

Accepted types of research work include:

  • Original research
  • Metanalysis
  • Case studies
  • Note that Simple literature reviews will not be accepted!
  • Abstracts previously presented will not be accepted.

The official language of the Event is ENGLISH and everything should be submitted in this language! (The whole registration form should be filled in only ENGLISH (UK) typewriter.)

Each participant may only submit and present a single work. Only one author can be the first-author. The first author is the Presenting author (Active participant). Co-authors may attend the conference as Non-Presenting Students (Passive participants). Co-authors may also present, in case of first-author unavailability (e.g. if you submit one work and for some reason you will not be able to attend the conference, you may assign your rights to one of the co-authors; by doing this, you forfeit your claim to the presentation prize in case of winning to your substitute).

A participant who is already a first author can also be a co-author of more than one submitted abstract; however each author will only be able to present one of the works, i.e. if you are inserted in a research group where all the members are (co) authors of all the works, each researcher can submit an abstract, given that each one will present one work.

Lastly, if you have submitted an abstract that has been approved, but are unable to participate during the congress, your abstract will still be included in the Abstract Book of ICMS 2020.
