Abstract Guidelines

Deadline:
Abstracts are due by January 15th, 2020. Authors will have the decision of the Scientific Committee by March 1, 2020 and must submit any reviewer recommended revisions by March 15, 2020.

Agreement:
By submission of an abstract the corresponding author agrees to provide (if requested) an extended manuscript of prescribed length for a post-conference "Proceedings" publication.

Format and Submission:
Abstracts must be submitted as ".doc" or ".docx" files prepared in MS Word, attached to an email with the full last name of the corresponding author beginning the "Subject line". Please indicate in the mail whether the first author (that should also be Presenting Author) is ACT or ECAR resident. The .doc/.docx file itself should also be named beginning with the last name of the corresponding author. If the author is submitting more than one abstract , then a unique word to each abstract should follow that corresponding authorís last name. The email and attached file should be sent to iscfr.evssar2020abstracts@gmail.com.

The abstract should be entirely single spaced, aligned on the left side with no justification, in Times Roman 12-point font. See "Abstract Guidelines" below.

Review Process:
All abstracts submitted will be reviewed by the Scientific Committee. Authors are highly encouraged to consult with a native English speaker before submitting the abstract. Although some editing may occur during the review process, extensive language editing by reviewers is discouraged and these abstracts may be rejected. The decision of the Committee will be final. Accepted abstracts will be assigned to one of the following categories based on the subject matter, session organization and time constraints, and in consideration of the preference of the author(s):

  • Standard Oral Presentation (20 min)
  • Poster Presentation

Abstract Book and On-Line:
All accepted abstracts will be included in the Abstract Book available to delegates at the meeting as electronic version and in the "ISCFR 2020 - EVSSAR 2020 abstracts" publication available on-line in IVIS before and during the meeting, and then maintained permanently on-line as Internet-retrievable PDF documents.

Symposium Proceedings Publication:
Authors of abstracts determined to be new and important contributions will be requested to provide an extended paper of prescribed length to be published, if acceptable on review. The authors will be notified by April 15, 2020 and should submit their papers by June 15, 2020. These works selected for extended length manuscripts and accepted by peer review will be published in Theriogenology as the Symposium Proceedings shortly after the Symposium.
