• Important deadlines - ESB Abstract Submission
    Dear Friends, Dear Colleagues,
    We want to inform you that the abstract submission deadline has been extended to 31th March 2022 (23:59 CET).

    Abstracts submitted via e-mail, fax or other means of communication will not be accepted.
    The online abstract system will take you step by step through the submission process.
    Upon completion of the submission process you will receive a confirmation e-mail.

    Author notifications will be sent on May 16, 2022.

    There will be a call for last-minute abstracts for poster presentations only, which will be opened on May 2, 2022. Please refer to the web pages and mailings for updates. Deadline Call for last minute abstracts (poster presentation only): May 31, 2022

    Contents and layout
    The Scientific Committee will only accept original scientific material, which has not been published before elsewhere. However, abstracts presented at local, regional or national meetings only may be submitted. Abstracts must be complete, relevant, balanced and written in high-quality English. This will help review and selection by the Scientific Committee.

    Submission guidelines
    Please note the general rules for abstract submission

      Each participant may upload up to 3 abstracts.
      Papers can be submitted for either oral presentation or poster presentation.
      The presenting author should present the communication on-site.
      Only abstracts from registered delegates who paid the registration fees in full will be considered for program planning and published in the abstract book.
      Every abstract has to be assigned to one of the sub-topics of the conference – which are the terms written with a number in the list at the end of this page. To ensure allocation to suitable reviewers please select a main topic that characterizes the content of the abstract. Additionally, please submit 4 alternative topics (helpful for program planning) as well as 3 keywords (used for keyword index and online program).
      Together with your abstract submission, you may apply for the Best Student Awards given to outstanding oral and poster contributions, submitted and presented by young scientists who have not yet completed their PhD  (see Educations Awards on https://www.esbiomaterials.eu). 

    Abstracts should be formatted as follows 
      Your submission has to be written in English.
      Your abstract may not contain more than 5000 characters (including spaces) for blind or non-blinded abstracts and does not exceed the two columns on one single page (10 Mo maximum and in pdf. format).
      You can upload up to 2 figures/images/tables to your abstract.
      You have to select a main topic to your abstract which best characterizes the content of the abstract (to be used for allocation of abstracts for reviewers). Additionally, you may select up to 4 other alternative topics..
      The abstract should state the purpose, methods and results of the study.
      You have to define 3 key words that will be used for search purposes in the abstract book and online program.
      Please ensure complete listing and correct order of all (co-)authors, correct formatting and grammar. Accepted abstracts will be printed and published as they have been submitted. After the submission deadline, changes will not be possible anymore.

    All papers will be evaluated with regard to their suitability for the conference, originality, and technical soundness by external reviewers. The Scientific Advisory Committee and the National Organizing Committee reserve the right to propose oral-presentation papers to poster presentation and vice versa, to obtain the most suitable presentation format.

    Registration rule for all accepted papers
    Please note that each accepted paper shall be accompanied by at least the full conference registration of the presenting author. In case of no registration and payment of the presenting author, the paper will be deleted from the abstract book afterwards.
