How to create my account?
If you have not yet registered or submitted an abstract with ICN 2018, click “Create an Account”. After being redirected to the account set-up page you may fill in all personal and professional information as requested. You will then be asked to choose a password. A message giving your personal code and summarizing the data entered will then be sent to you by email and will give you the instructions to follow to finalise your account set-up for abstract submission. Then you are now ready to return to the abstract submission page.
Step 1: How to submit my abstract?
Your abstract must contain:
Step 2: Select the abstract options (oral and/or poster) and a topic.
The topic of your abstract should be selected from the symposia list. Please select the abstract presentation option, as oral presentations will be selected through a competitive process. This information will be used to classify your abstract for reviewing purposes. Also we ask you to indicate whether you would like to be considered for a trainee travel award.
Step 3: Title
Step 4: Authors
Prepare the list of authors and coauthors before submitting your abstract. The first author should be the presenting author, if possible, and if not the presenting author should be indicated.
Step 5: Text
Step 6: Validation and submission
The abstract is automatically registered as a “draft” status. As long as you do not submit the final version, you can change your abstract until the submission deadline by returning to the submit page using your account login. Once submitted no further changes are allowed.
IMPORTANT: Abstracts with a “Submitted” status will be forwarded to the Abstract Review Committee. It is your responsibility to submit your abstract by clicking on the “submit” arrow before the deadline (January 26, 2018, midnight PST).
After clicking the “Submit” link, you will receive an email confirmation of your submission.
Step 7: Evaluation
After the submission deadline, abstracts will be sent to the Abstract Review Committee according to the chosen symposia topic. The Abstract Review Committee will decide whether the abstract is acceptable for the meeting, and subsequently whether the abstract is accepted as an oral or poster presentation based upon the final rankings.
All delegates will receive the final status (accepted or rejected) by email before the early registration deadline for ICN 2018 (March 15, 2018).
For any inquiries, please contact the Abstract & Speaker Manager at ICN2018-Speakers@icsevents.com. If your inquiry is regarding a particular draft or submission, please include the abstract ID in your email.
