Abstract Submission

Submissions of abstracts for consideration for the 9th International Symposium on Equine Embryo Transfer and Technology are accepted until February 29, 2016. Abstracts on experimental or clinical research are accepted in areas including: Embryo Collection, Ovum Pick-Up, Oocyte Maturation, Fertilization (in vivo and in vitro), Embryo Culture, Embryo Transfer, Early Embryonic Development (in vivo and in vitro), Early Embryonic Loss, Cooled Embryo Storage, Embryo and Oocyte Cryopreservation, Embryo Sexing, PGD, Recipient Mare Management and Fertility, Cloning (all aspects as listed above), Epigenetic and other aspects determining the quality of the offspring produced by ET, ICSI, IVF or Cloning. The Symposium will welcome 150 communications divided approximately equally between oral and poster presentations. The Proceedings of ISEET will be published as abstracts and made available on-line before the start of the meeting. (More details will follow when available).

Deadline = February 29, 2016

Deadline for submission: February 29, 2016.

Deadline for communicating of selection: The decision of the scientific committee will be communicated no later than March 31st.

Agreement: It is understood that by submitting an abstract the corresponding author agrees that if the abstract is accepted one of the authors will attend the meeting to present the abstract and agrees to provide an extended manuscript of prescribed length for the proceedings publication, if requested. Each presenting author can only present one abstract.

Access to the conference: All authors of submitted abstracts will receive priority access at registration. Attendance is limited and priority will be given to (1) first and last authors of accepted abstracts; (2) authors of submitted abstracts and (3) delegates that did not submit an abstract (registrations will be accepted in the order in which they are received). Delegates are encouraged to register before submission of their abstract to ensure their participation in the conference.

Format and Submission

How to submit: Abstracts must be submitted preferably both as a PDF and Word-compatible document and an email with the full last name of the corresponding author in the "Subject line". The files should also be named beginning with the last name of the corresponding author. The email and attached files should be sent to the editorial secretariat at: peter.daels@ugent.be.

Review process: All abstracts will be reviewed by the Symposium Scientific Committee. The decision of the Committee will be final. Accepted abstracts will be assigned to either standard oral presentation (12 min plus 3 min questions) or poster presentations. If possible, selected abstracts will be grouped and discussed during workshop sessions.

Abstract book, print and on-line: All accepted Abstracts will be included in the Abstract Book available to delegates at the meeting and in the ISEET website on-line before and during the meeting, and then maintained permanently on-line as Internet-retrievable PDF documents.

Guidelines for abstract preparation: Abstracts should be written in English and should not exceed two A4 size pages (3.0 cm margins top & bottom, 2.0 cm margins on sides) or two 8-1/2"x11" pages (1" margins) in length, in Times Roman 12 pt. font.

In general, the maximum length including any references will be approximately 100 lines single-spaced; 700 words; 7500 characters).

The style should follow the requirements for manuscripts submitted to biomedical journals, also known as the Vancouver Style. In addition, authors are requested to adhere to the following guidelines:

Line 1: Title (bold and flush left)

Line 2: Name(s) of Author(s) (flush left). Superscript 1, 2 etc. for address(es) of each author. Name of presenting author in bold. No skipped lines or line breaks.

Standard abbreviations may be used without definition. Other abbreviations must be defined by placing them in parenthesis after the full word the first time they appear. Avoid abbreviations in the title. Vague statements such as "A...will be discussed" should be avoided. Statements of the basic methods and quantitative statements of results must be included. Tables with explanatory titles should be MS Word format Tables of 8-9 data cells flush left, with no other formatting. Figures should be inserted in the MS Word document but preferably placed at the end of the document, after references, flush left, with no other formatting.

References in the text (up to maximum of 6) should be indicated by numbers in parentheses corresponding with the reference list at the end of the abstract. Examples of references, as for a journal article and chapter in a book:

(1) Watts PD, Smith PA, Jouet LG et al. Artificial insemination made easy. J Transatlan Vet Med 1985;14:28-35.

(2) Remlot BP and Luddy PW. Diseases of the severely immuno-deficient mouse. In: Weber RO, and Hedberg AC, eds. Fundamentals of transplantation surgery. Yorktown: WB Saunders Company, 1990:967-72.

OBJECTIVES AND METHODS. Skip one line after author affiliations and email. Here is the text of the manuscript where you should describe objectives of the study, the materials and methods, the results and a brief discussion of the findings.

RESULTS. Skip one line between sections. Section headings in ALL CAPS should be flush left with following text continuing on the same line. The entire text should not exceed 700 words, fit within the two page limit including references, and where experimental animals are used you should mention the ethical approvals. When you cite a reference for example to an article on cloning in dogs (1) use the format as shown below. Book chapter citation (2) should be formatted as shown in the second reference.

Start new paragraphs flush left. Do not skip lines other than between sections. Start new paragraphs within a section on the next line. In MS word this function is located under line spacing (1.0) option to "Do not skip line between paragraphs". Please do not use indents, justifications or special formatting. Please use no more than 10 references.

CONCLUSION. Remember to name the file for the Abstract beginning with the last name of the corresponding author.
