Abstract Submission and Management

Welcome to the online abstract submission site for IPEG’s 30th Annual Congress for Endosurgery in Children taking place as part of the 2021 Annual Meetings of APSA & IPEG
May 22-24, 2021
While the specific format of the 2021 Annual Meetings of APSA & IPEG is yet to be determined, we are committed to providing an experience at the same level of excellence as past meetings.

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2020 5:00pm (Eastern Time)

Although this is a Joint Meeting with APSA, abstracts may not be submitted to both IPEG and APSA simultaneously. You must submit your abstract to one or the other.

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

  • No Previously Published Submissions: The abstract submitted must present original work that has not and will not be published prior to IPEG’s 30th Annual Congress for Endosurgery in Children. Abstracts should only be submitted if they or their main content will not have been previously accepted for publication or will not have been previously published (paper or electronic).

  • Previously Presented Submissions: The abstract submitted should not be presented at a national or international meeting prior to the commencement of the IPEG 2021 Meeting. Presentation at one of the following means that abstracts should not be submitted: BAPS, AAP, APSA, EUPSA, CAPS, PAPS, ISPR, AAPS, SAGES, WOFAPS. If the abstract has been presented at a meeting other than those listed (e.g. a meeting of another specialty), this MUST be declared during the abstract submission process so that the committee can make a decision.

  • Previously Presented Data: All abstracts must be new and original content OR include at least 50% new data if previously presented at a meeting.

  • No reference to the authors or the institution should appear within the body of the abstract or in the abstract title.

  • There is no limit to the number of abstracts you may submit, but you may not submit a video abstract and a written abstract on the same study/data set. You must select either a written abstract submission or a video abstract submission.

  • 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.

  • Written Abstract Submissions

    • The word limit for written abstract submissions is 500-words.

    • A maximum of one (1) Image may be included in the written abstract. Images must be no larger than 1MB in file size, and the image may be no larger than 900 pixels wide by 900 pixels high.

    • Tables may be included in the abstract submission but will go against the abstract's 500-word limit.

    • Videos may not be submitted with a written abstract

    Video Abstract Submissions

    • The Maximum length for submitted videos is Five (5) Minutes. IPEG is not accepting 3D Video submissions. If your video is accepted for presentation at the IPEG 2021 Meeting, you will be required to bring a final copy of your video with you to the meeting.

    • If your video is accepted for presentation at the IPEG 2021 Meeting, you may be asked to edit your video to fit a shorter presentation time limit.

    • A short (150-word maximum) written description of your video should be included when submitting your video abstract. Images and tables should not be included when submitting a video abstract.

    • Video files should be no larger than 1GB
