Notes for authors

1. 3,000 characters are allowed for the abstract text including spaces, bibliographical references and captions and excluding author names and titles. There is no additional character buffer. The abstract check is bound to the maximum number of characters of 3,000. Neither the own institute/clinic nor product or brand names may be stated in the title. In addition, no reference to participating institutes or clinics may be made in the abstract text either, as the evaluation is anonymous.

2. Tables or graphics (max. two with a storage capacity of max. 200 KB) in abstracts may be submitted in .png or .jpg format. Graphics and tables will be printed in black and white in the abstract volume. The graphics will automatically be placed below the abstract text if there is no explicit note on graphics in the text.

3. The main authors will be informed about the acceptance via e-mail, in addition information will be given about the defined presentation form (oral or poster) and the time of the oral or poster presentation.
