Your Abstract should adhere to the following format:
- Title : Your title should be as concise and accurate as possible. Good titles may ask aquestion, describe a problem, reference a controversy, summarize an experience, or even state a result.
- Aim : State in 1-2 sentences the aim of your study. Describe the scientific context, i.e. why you did the study and include what the hypothesis of the study was. Novelty for its own sake without a clear justification is insufficient reason for a study.
- Methods : Briefly state the plan and/or methods used, i.e. how you did the study. For reports of clinical experience it is essential to describe the patient population and how they were identified and / or selected. For comparisons between two populations, it is particularly important to show how the two groups are comparable and / or different.
- Results : Clearly summarize the data, i.e. what you found. Use that format which most concisely and clearly presents your results. Abstracts must be complete and include data in the results. Abstracts that do not include results (“results will be presented”) will be automatically rejected.
- Conclusions : Briefly state the implications of your findings, i.e. what the results mean.
