Abstracts should be drafted to be presented in the form of Oral Presentations or Poster Presentation

Abstracts that are not submitted properly will receive an administrative rejection and will not be reviewed.

  1. Language: The abstract must be written in English or Indonesian.
  2. Presentation Format: Your submission may be presented orally or as a poster. You must indicate your preference. Space for oral presentations is limited and therefore the Program Chair and Scientific Committee may need to override your preference.
  3. Title: Title must be initial caps throughout. Example: Lipoid Pneumonia in the Paralytic Patient after Brain Injury.
  4.  Abstract: Abstracts must be 400 words or less.
  5. Do not include references with citations in abstracts.
  6. Abstracts must be submitted properly. The online system is a database with data fields (title, author 1, author 2, author 3, etc) that are used to generate the published abstracts. Therefore, pay careful attention to the submission instructions and to the submission process. Ask for technical support (see link at top of submission screens) if you are not sure.
     Abstract Limits:
     Number of Authors: 30
     Abstract Title: 200 characters
     Abstract Content: 400 words

  7. You may include Greek letters and special symbols, e.g. ° (degree sign), ® (registered trademark), etc. However, the system will not preserve tables. Tables may be included in your poster or presentation, but data must be reported in narrative format in the abstract submission.

  8. Confirmation: When you finish submitting your abstract, you will receive a confirmation screen verifying your submission and assigning a tracking number to your abstract. SAVE YOUR TRACKING NUMBER! It will serve as your identification number for corrections, scheduling, and notification.
