  • A well-written abstract typically has the following identified sections:
    1. Background/objectives: a brief introduction, which states the problem that you are addressing as well as some background information on the issue. The introduction of the poster abstract should include a very brief background 1-2 statements followed by the objectives of the investigation.
    2. Design and methods: the methodologies, number of test subjects and scientific approach used to conduct the research.
    3. Results: it is expected that authors present data that support their conclusion. Tables and graphs should include explanatory captions.
    4. Conclusions: further areas of research and overall conclusion of the research
    5. Citation: a reference list and acknowledgements


Tips in writing your abstract:

  • Make the title dynamic and conclusive, rather than descriptive.
  • Identify your submission category carefully to assure proper consideration.
  • Use generic names. Use trade names only when necessary.
  • Avoid beginning sentences with numerals.
  • Standard abbreviations may be used without definition. Nonstandard abbreviations should be placed in parentheses after the first use of the word or phrase abbreviated.
  • No references, credits or grant support should be included in the abstract.
  • No identifying information about patients participating in a study or trial should be used.
  • All abbreviations must be defined before being used as an abbreviation in the text.
  • Proofread abstracts carefully to avoid errors before submission. No corrections will be allowed or made once the abstract has been submitted.


The submitting author must verify that all co-authors have read and approved the submission of the abstract.


A disclosure form identifying commercial relationships for all co-authors must be completed by the submitting author, if their abstract has been accepted for publication.
