Call for Abstracts

Abstract Submission has been closed

Abstracts may only be submitted via internet at this website

EASL is pleased to invite you to submit abstracts for consideration for Poster Presentation at the upcoming EASL Monothematic Conference: “Systems Biology of the Liver: Systems Biology and Clinics Face à Face” to be held in Luxembourg.

The conference programme and abstract book will include abstracts of invited speakers and accepted poster abstracts.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is November 23, 2012. Abstracts received after this deadline will not be accepted.

All accepted abstracts will be in poster format. The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.

Please note that the abstract content may be edited at the discretion of the Scientific Organising Committee.

Guidelines for preparation and submission of abstracts

  1. Abstracts may only be submitted via internet. Abstracts submitted by fax or email will not be accepted.
  2. All abstracts must be submitted and presented in English. Please use UK English spelling and have your abstract proofread for grammar and understanding.
  3. Abstracts should contain only original material not published elsewhere prior to February 21, 2013.
  4. Please structure your abstract using the following headings:

    • Objectives
    • Methods
    • Results
    • Conclusion (avoid evasive statements like “the findings will be discussed”)

  5. All abbreviations must be defined the first time they appear in your text. Example: Ataxia telangiectasia (AT), before being used as an abbreviation only. Do not define or use abbreviations in the title.
  6. Avoid complex mathematical formulae. For the symbols = or =, please type <= or >=. For superscript use caret (^) e.g. 10^6 instead of 106. Avoid Greek letters and symbols. Eg: Instead of “IFN-ß” “IFN-beta”. Use generic names of drugs. Express numbers as numerals.
  7. Please do not include keywords as they will be removed from publication.
  8. Tables or graphs which you wish to include in the abstract. Images should be submitted in JPG/BMP format, maximum width 9cm, and resolution up to 150dpi. Please note that these may be resized to fit in the final printed material. EASL restricts the number of graphs to 1 (one) per abstract submitted. Abstracts may not be longer than 2’500 characters including spaces (excluding title and authors)
  9. After having submitted your abstract, you will receive a confirmation by e-mail with your abstract reference number and personal address code and password. If you do not receive a confirmation by e-mail please contact the Abstract Hotline (check your e-mail address!). Should you wish to make corrections to an abstract already submitted or if you wish to submit other abstracts later, you may use your personal access codes.
    Corrections to abstracts can only be made up to the deadline of November 23, 2012.
  10. If an abstract is accepted, one author must attend the congress and present it in person. Acceptance of the abstract implies payment of the registration fee by the presenting author. Register now. 
  11. If your research has been granted any commercial or institutional support, you will be asked to disclose this during the submission process.

If you have difficulties in submitting your abstract(s) or if you need any further information, please contact the Abstract Hotline:
