INSTRUCTIONS FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION

The deadline for abstract submissions has been extended!

Abstract submission for ICPP 2022 is now open. DEADLINE: July 10th.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts for a poster session/oral presentation. Some abstracts will be selected for an oral presentation, although as is usual we anticipate far more contributions will be accommodated as posters rather than oral contributions (due to program time constraints). To assist the Committee in selecting suitable oral presentations please indicate if you would like to be considered for oral presentation by checking the box “willing to present orally”. Figures, tables, and other illustrations may not be included in the abstracts. All contributions will be reviewed before inclusion in the programme.

You can submit an abstract into one (or more) of the following categories:

  • Fundamentals of heme biology and regulation
  • Acute Hepatic Porphyrias: New insights and therapies
  • Cutaneous Porphyrias: New insights and therapies
  • Diagnostic approaches
  • Approaches to patient care
  • Diagnostic and clinical conundrums

Authors are invited to create a new account first, and then submit their abstracts following the instructions on the electronic submission form (copied below for reference). Please note that only completed submissions will enter the review process and all incomplete drafts will be deleted from the system after the deadline. Notification of acceptance/decline will be sent out no later than 12 August 2022. The organizer will publish only the abstracts submitted by authors, who have registered for the conference.

Presentation Type
A considerable part of the scientific program comprise oral presentations selected on the scientific merit of the submitted abstracts All abstracts will therefore be reviewed by the scientific committee who will ultimately decide whether a submitted paper will be selected for an oral presentation or a poster session.

Oral presentations
The scheduled time for each oral presentation is 15 minutes (i.e,. 10 minutes presentation + 5 minutes question/discussion time). With this in mind, speakers are requested to stay within the time given, and certainly not talk for >12 minutes. While the names of several authors may be included on the title of the abstract, only one author will be allowed to give the oral presentation.

Poster session
This format provides an opportunity for personal interaction and exchange of ideas. Material for a poster presentation is mounted on a poster board.
If you are using photographs, graphics and pieces of text, these should also fit within the area of the poster. The posters should be prepared using sufficiently large fonts for the text and equations. The illustrations should also be clearly visible.

Set up and take down schedule

The posters should be placed on appropriate boards on September 4th and taken down on September 7th.

Poster Board Specifications

The available poster boards are 1 m wide and 2 m high portrait style.

It is recommended that a printed poster is no larger than A0 size posters (portrait orientation) would fit well (841 X 1189 mm) 0,95 m wide and 1,95 m high.

Posters have to be fixed onto the boards by means of double-faced adhesive tape, which will be provided on site.

Please contact the Congress Secretariat (e-mail: secretariat@icpp2022) if you need any additional information.

Consent and ethics
Abstracts that include identifiable information about individual patients should include a consent to publish statement. Research involving human subjects must have been approved by an appropriate ethics committee, which should be acknowledged on the poster. If abstracts do not contain relevant ethics and consent statements, where required, they will not be approved by the Scientific Committee.

Affiliations
Affiliations should include department, institute, town and country. Where there are multiple affiliations, each should be listed as a separate paragraph. Each institute should appear in the order used against the author names (see above paragraph) and show the appropriate superscript number, e.g.:

1 Department, University, Town, State, USA
2 University, Town, State, UK
2 Company, Town, State, Canada

Main text
Should not be more than stated length
