How to write and submit an EACTS Abstract

The EACTS way of abstract submission is by a short Powerpoint presentation. The reason is that we think it is simpler to submit an abstract in this way and it will also a allow a faster and better review process.

Please follow the instructions carefully. A presentation which is understandable and follows the instructions is much more likely to be accepted for presentation at the meeting.

  • It is mandatory to use the PowerPoint template that EACTS provides and that can be downloaded HERE. Only this template is accepted!
  • A maximum of 7 slides is allowed!
    • Slide 1: Title & ID; the first slide contains the Title of the presentation and also the Abstract ID from the online submission site
      • Do not use the “Enter” button in your title. This action will add hard returns, which are not allowed
      • Do not use abbreviations in the title. Abbreviations may be used in the following slides
      • Do not end the title with a period (.)
      • Do not use quotation marks in a title (” “)
      • The title must not be CAPS. Do not bold, italicize, underline,superscript or subscript any items in the title.
