Guidelines for the submission of Abstracts

  • An abstract must be submitted to only ONE of the above conferences, via the relevant website.
  • The abstract should relate to original, unpublished work and must not have been previously presented at any major meeting.
  • Abstracts must consist of four paragraphs, entitled: Aims, Methods, Results, Conclusions.
  • Abstracts are to be submitted as text and tables only (i.e. no figures, graphs or diagrams).
  • The maximum word count is 300.
  • A maximum of five authors can be listed.
  • As the abstract will be judged anonymously, the text must not reveal any institutional affiliation.
  • The category which best describes the subject of your work, from the list above, should be indicated.
  • If the abstract is to be considered for the ASGBI Moynihan Prize, the relevant box should be marked.

ASGBI takes a serious view of Research Governance. Please ensure that the abstract has been seen and agreed by all of the named authors before submission. All authors have a responsibility to ensure that the data submitted is accurate, is not extrapolated and fairly represents the presentation to be given at the Association’s International Surgical Congress.
