4. You will be able to edit text, use special characters and symbols, super/subscript, enter a table and/or figures. You will know immediately whether your abstract conforms to our size and other requirements.

5. Abstracts should be structured as follows (except for Clinical Cases):

  • Background
  • Methods/Materials
  • Results
  • Conclusion

6. The maximum length of an abstract is 2000 characters; this count includes the Abstract Body, Tables and Images.

7. An identical abstract cannot be submitted twice to different Categories.

8. The Abstract Title must be in capital letters.

9. Trade names should not be mentioned in the title. However, trade names in brackets will be accepted in the body of the text.

10. Linguistic accuracy is your responsibility. All submissions should be in English ONLY.

11. Abbreviations should be written in full the first time they are used.

12. Conclusions should reflect the evidence presented in the abstract.

13. Copyright, if this abstract is accepted, will be held by the European Society for Organ Transplantation.

NOTE: Please read through your abstract carefully before submitting.

Successful abstracts would be presented as a case to an expert group who are familiar with the clinical problems in discipline. Please try to avoid rare case which even the experts will not have met before. We encourage submitters to present a case which they found difficult, in which the evidence does not give a clear line of management but a case in which expert views would be very interesting.
Abstract submitters must make sure that abstracts are anonymize and all patient details have been removed. Any abstract which has patient details included, either in text or, for example, on imaging, will be considered void and deleted from the system.
Abstracts are divided, first of all, by organ and then by sub-grouping of the clinical problem. This will ensure that the panel who review your case will have expertise in that area.
