Abstract Submission Guidelines

Please follow the instructions listed on this website step-by-step:

  • Submission of an abstract acknowledges your acceptance for the abstract to be published in the official meeting publications.
  • Presenting authors of abstracts must be registered participants. Registration must be received by the Secretariat by the Registration Deadline: November 4, 2016 to ensure inclusion of the abstract in the meeting publications and in order to be scheduled for presentation.
  • Abstracts must be original and must not be or have been published or presented at any other symposium prior to the 47th Annual Meeting of KSP.
  • Abstracts must be submitted and presented in clear English with accurate grammar and spelling of a quality suitable for publication. Please note that abstracts submitted with a low level of English will not be considered for presentation.
  • Abstract text should be 300 words or less. The word count excludes the abstract title, author names and affiliations.
  • Abstracts must be received by the announced deadline. Abstracts received after the deadline will not be considered.
  • Abstracts stating "data will be discussed in the presentation" will NOT be accepted.

The Scientific Committee will determine whether the abstract will be accepted as an oral presentation, a poster presentation, or a journal publication, with consideration given to the author's preference. The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission to the Secretariat. The abstract published online will include the e-mail address of the presenting author. As a condition of submission, the 47th Annual Meeting of KSP requires you to agree to such publication and to surrender any copyright over the abstract as submitted to the 47th Annual Meeting of KSP.
