There is a 500-word limit for abstracts. No reference to the authors or the institution should appear within the body of the abstract or in the abstract title.

Important Notice: The following Abstract Submission Policies will be firmly enforced:

  • No Previously Published Submission: The abstract submitted must present original work that has not and will not be published or presented prior to the 2018 IPEG meeting. Abstracts should only be submitted if they or their main content will not have been previously accepted for publication, published (paper or electronic) or presented at a national or international meeting prior to the commencement of the IPEG Congress. Presentation at one of the following means that abstracts should not be submitted: BAPS, AAP, APSA, EUPSA, CAPS, PAPS, ISPR, AAPS, SAGES, WOFAPS. If abstracts have been presented at a meeting other than those listed (e.g. a national meeting or a meeting of another specialty), this MUST be declared so that the committee can make a decision

  • No Previously Presented Data: All abstracts must be new and original content OR include at least 50% new data if previously presented at a meeting.

  • Video Submissions: The Maximum length for videos is Five (5) Minutes. IPEG is not accepting 3D Video submissions. If your video is accepted for presentation at the 2018 IPEG meeting, you will be required to bring a final copy of your video with you to the meeting.

  • ETHICAL: It is expected that the results section of the abstract represents original data by the authors, or a clearly stated systematic review/meta-analysis of the literature. IPEG considers plagiarism to be a serious breach of professional standards and authors found to have plagiarized the work of others can expect a ban and a report to their employing organization.

NOTE: IPEG's CME Committee declares that no employees of a commercial interest may present in IPEG CME accredited activities when the topic is relevant unless in compliance with the ACCME's policy and approved by the IPEG CME Committee.
