The deadline to submit abstracts is May 9, 2021 at 24:00 CET.

Guidelines for Online-Abstract Submission

Please read the instructions carefully before accessing the submission site.

1. Abstract Format

Submissions as e-Posters only (no oral presentation will be possible) 

The text cannot exceed 250 words, excluding title and authors
A maximum of three institutions per author is allowed.
Tables may be included, however a 25 word penalty will be added to the word count.
No graphics are allowed

2. Before you get started...

Type your abstract in a common Word Processor (e.g. MS Word). Please save a copy of the file with the abstract text only (no title or authors). This file can then be used for a "file upload" (most convenient way of submission). The upload feature supports and converts tables within the document. Special characters are widely supported.
Please note that if you submitted an abstract at a previous EHMSG meeting, your login and password are still valid. Make sure however, to update your (email-) address if it has changed meanwhile (see section "Profile" during submission).

General Information on Abstract Submission and FAQ

Browser Issues
For optimum results when using the Online Submission System, it is recommended that you use Internet Explorer 7.0 or higher for Windows. For Macintosh users we recommend Safari 3.0 or higher for Mac OS 10.4. or higher.
Submission is perfectly possible with other browsers as well, but some advanced functions are possible only with the above.
Please note that you must also have JavaScript and Cookies enabled in your browser preferences in order for the system to function properly. Instructions to enable cookies are given on the login page. A list of compatible browsers is given on the login page.

Account management - Personal Information - Password
Please create one account per submitting author. The system stores your information. If you choose to submit more than one abstract you will not need to create another account. See "Returning users" above.

After you created the account, the system will display a password and username that will allow you to return and edit, delete or withdraw your abstract. A confirmation email with the access information will also be sent to you for later reference.

Personal information can be edited if necessary by clicking the "Profile" icon (e.g. in case of an address change). Attention: All correspondence regarding the acceptance of your abstract will be e-mailed to the address given by you in the "profile section". Please complete all the fields accurately.

Please remember that the confirmation letters will not be sent by post. Thus if the given email address is mistyped, wrong or the mailbox is full or out of order, and the confirmation email does not reach you in time, you may miss important deadlines (e.g. reduced registration fee).

Corrections - Withdrawal
Titles of submitted or started abstracts are displayed in the Welcome Area, together with the information on whether the submission is complete or incomplete. To edit one of these abstracts, simply click on the title.

Changes and withdrawals can be made until the deadline of May 9, 2021, 24.00 hrs CET.

The submission system stores the information in "real time". The moment you reach the "Summary" within the submission process and the system tells you "This submission is complete" your abstract is completed and has been received. However you will still be able to come back and make modifications until the deadline.

Please make sure you print the summary page for your records. The system also has an e-mail confirmation feature. Simply click the appropriate link on the summary page and fill in your email address(es) in the appropriate box.

For support during the submission process, please send an email to workshop@ehmsg.org or call
