ECP 2021 Preliminary Programme

11 ECP 2021 · Virtual Congress e SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS The scientific committee invites you to participate actively in this congress which will be an extraordinary occasion for the exchange of thoughts and experiences. We look forward to receiving abstracts online for consideration and inclusion in the scientific programme as oral or poster pre- sentation or e-Poster. The submitted abstracts should give a brief description of the title and topic. All abstracts will be reviewed by mem- bers of the working groups and/or the scientific committee. The reviewers will judge the abstracts according to the relevance to ESP, standard of English, objectivity of state- ment, description of what was done, suitability of methods to aims, conclusions confirmed by objective results, ethics, scientific value, potential clinical value, originality of work and overall impression. All accepted abstracts will be published in an abstract book which is a digital supplement to Virchows Archiv, and online on the congress website www.esp-congress. org. There will be no printed version of the abstract book. The deadline for abstract submission is 14 April 2021 . e GUIDELINES FOR PREPARATION OF ABSTRACTS e Please choose a title that clearly indicates the content of the contribution. e Please avoid abbreviations in the title (exception: scien- tific terms). Abbreviations may be used in the text if they are defined when used first. e Please make sure to use proper English language. e Please refrain from spelling abstract titles and co-au- thors’ names in capital letters. e The author‘s name (full first name, family name) and place of work (institution, city, country) should be indi- cated in the respective form fields, not in the abstract title. e Degrees, titles, street addresses and acknowledgements of support should be omitted in the abstract title and text. To provide maximum information in the abstract please e state the specific background & objective of the study e state the methods used, if pertinent e summarise the results obtained e state the conclusions reached e ensure that the abstract does not contain spelling, gram- mar or scientific errors, as it will be reproduced exactly as submitted. e GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS e A maximum of 5 abstracts per author will be accepted for submission. Additional submissions will not be con- sidered (without further notice). e An abstract which has been previously published cannot be submitted, unless there are new methods, findings, updated data or other acceptable reasons for submitting. e Abstracts are to be submitted in English, the official language of the 33 rd European Congress of Pathology, should not exceed 250 words and be structured in the following specified subtitles: background & objective, methods, results and conclusion . e Case reports should also be structured as much as possi- ble following the aforementioned categories. If not pos- sible, the authors should upload the abstracts using the most appropriate categories (in the respective text boxes in the submission form). e The abstract submission constitutes a formal commit- ment by the first author to present the corresponding presentation in the session and time slot assigned by the scientific committee. e Changes in authorship should be communicated to the Congress and Exhibition Office at ecp-gothenburg@cpo- in order to ensure correct appearance in the printed programme. e Should the first author, who is considered the presenter, turn out to be unable to present his / her poster one of the co-authors should take over this responsibility. A change of the presenting author needs to be communicated to the Congress and Exhibition Office at ecp-gothenburg@ and will only be processed after accept- ance of abstracts. Presenter changes, which are being addressed to the Congress and Exhibition Office before the official acceptance notification, will not be consid- ered. e Registration to the congress is mandatory to be able to present the abstract and get it published in the abstract book – and must be completed by 24 June 2021 . If the speaker fails to register and pay before this date, his / her abstract will be excluded from the scientific programme and publication in Virchows Archiv. e If a delegate has registered upon the condition that his / her abstract is accepted and the abstract is rejected, the registration fee will be refunded. The acceptance of ab- stracts by the scientific committee does not imply any financial assistance or fee reduction. e Notification of acceptance or rejection by the scientific committee will be emailed to the first author. Detailed information in which format the abstract is accepted (oral or poster presentation or e-Poster), guidelines and recommendations for each abstract type as well as time allotment, date, hour, and venue will be sent in due time to registered first authors.
