  • Abstracts must be submitted by the PRESENTING AUTHOR only. Presenting authors must use their own SICOT account to submit their abstracts and register for the Congress. Please note that this author cannot be changed through the online abstract submission system and a request to change it will only be accepted under exceptional circumstances before 26 June 2019. Requests can be sent to congress@sicot.org.

  • Only electronically submitted abstracts are accepted.

  • Abstracts must not exceed 250 words in length.

  • Abstracts must be written in English. We highly recommend that the abstract is proofread for spelling and grammar errors by a fluent English speaker before submission. Abstracts written in poor English have less chance of being accepted.

  • Authors’ first and last names must be spelled out in full. Please do not use any initials.

  • Do NOT use all upper-case letters when entering your abstract.

  • The abstract's title or authors' names/institutions must NOT be inserted in the 'Content' field.

  • No graphs, tables, photographs, or slide presentations are accepted.

  • Abstracts will be published as one paragraph, so they should not be broken into multiple paragraphs. If you wish to use headings within your abstract, such as Introduction, Methods, Results, etc., they should be added at the beginning of a sentence within the paragraph and a colon (:) should be inserted after each heading. Example:

    Introduction: xxxx xxxx xxxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxx. Methods: xxxx xxx xxxx xxx xxx xxx xxxx. Results: xxxxx xxxx xxxx xxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx....etc.

Once you have clicked on "Finish" at the end of the process, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with your abstract number. Please check your Spam/Junk email folders if you do not receive a confirmation.

Submission of an abstract implies that the presenting author will register for and attend the Congress in Muscat to present the abstract either as an oral presentation or as an e-poster if it is accepted.

The Programme Committee reserves the right to change the topic and the form of presentation (oral/e-poster) of the abstract or to reject it.
