The material should not have been published or presented at any European meeting prior to the date of presentation. It is permissible, however, to have presented the material previously at a regional meeting and to have had it published in abstract form in a publication associated with one of these meetings.

Abstract submissions may only be made through the website. Support is available by contacting the ESDR Office (office [at]

Abstract Submission – Detailed Instructions

Please complete the steps in the on-line abstract submission procedure on the ESDR abstract submission website adhering to the instructions given there. To submit the abstract text, you must copy your text into the form provided. Do not exceed 2300 characters (including spaces, authors and affiliations).

Abstracts must conform to the following standards:

Maximum of 10 co-authors.

Please indicate each co-author’s principal affiliation only.

DO NOT exceed 2300 characters including spaces (also including authors and affiliations). Overly long abstracts may be edited.

DO NOT use graphics or tables.

DO NOT use subheadings like “RESULTS, DISCUSSION” etc in your text. These will be deleted.

DO NOT number sections in your abstract.

DO NOT put author names or affiliations in the  abstract text. This will help to ensure that your abstract is reviewed fairly.

DO NOT use capitals or underline for emphasis in the text. Use the standard Symbol font for Greek and math symbols.

DO NOT mention support of work by a research grant.

DO NOT include references. These will be deleted.

The title must be brief and indicate clearly the nature of the investigation. The title should be upper and lowercase letters. Abbreviations must not be used in the title.

Nonproprietary (generic) names should be given the first time a drug is mentioned in the body of the abstract and should be written in small letters. The first letter of a proprietary name is always capitalized, e.g., cyproheptadine (Periactin).

The abstract body should be organised as follows:

(a) a sentence describing the purpose of the study;

(b) a statement of experimental design or method used;

(c) a summary of results, presented in sufficient detail to support the conclusion; and

(d) a statement of conclusions reached.

It is not satisfactory to state “The results will be discussed…” or “Other data will be presented.”

Failure to follow these instructions will result in a low priority score and may cause disqualification of your abstract.
