Abstract Submission

Requirement and guidance for submitting papers

latest update

We are all facing a serious situation concerning the corona virus, which makes it unpredictable at the moment how the next months will proceed. Therefore, we all cannot foresee if the plans for ICY15 end of August can hold.

Clearly, individual and public health have absolute priority and we will set the necessary steps well in time to decide if the congress can be held as planned or needs to be postponed. For now, we have decided to extend all deadlines until end of May, when we will be able to foresee whether ICY15 in August will be safe, or will need a contingency plan.

Please keep the planned dates, August 23-27, in your agenda until we have security concerning the situation. We will keep you updated.

Abstract submission

  • The title of the abstract must be less than 20 words
  • The body of the abstract must be concise with less than 300 words. The abstract system will not accept abstracts that exceed 300 words (body of the abstract).
  • Please ensure that you indicate the presenting author on the abstract. If the submitting author is also the presenting author then please mark this as the presenting author. If the submitting author is different please indicate both the submitting author and the presenting author
  • Standard abbreviations and SI units must be used. Non-standard abbreviations must be defined in full at their first appearance.
  • Abstracts must not contain any images or tables.
  • Careful typing and proofreading are essential, as otherwise the abstract may be amended or rejected.

The submission system allows for submitters to save and continue to work on the abstract later (by clicking on “Save as draft”) – if you choose this option you can log in and continue to work on the abstract at any point up to the abstract deadline. Please ensure that you have selected “submission” when you have completed the abstract and no further work is necessary.

Please note that all abstract presenters are required to register for the conference. Please ensure that they have registered no later than end of May 2020 – if you have not registered by this date your abstract will be withdrawn.
