Each registrant may submit abstract/s of his or her work for presentation during the ‘International Conference on Public Health Priorities in the 21st Century: The Endgame for Tobacco’. It is expected that the abstract will include original data not previously published in a peer-review journal or the proceedings of a national/international meeting.
Only those abstracts that have been reviewed and selected by the Abstract Committee may be presented. Abstract submissions will only be accepted electronically through the abstract submission module; paper abstracts will not be accepted.
Abstract Submission is closed.
Abstract may be submitted in one of the following formats:
Oral Presentation:PowerPoint Presentation to be delivered by the submitter in the scientific sessions.
Poster Presentation:Printed Poster to be created by the submitter and affixed in the poster panels.
You should indicate your Presentation Type preference when submitting your abstract. However the decision on whether your abstract, if accepted, should be presented as Oral or Poster Presentation will be at the sole discretion of the Abstract Committee.
Detailed information on the presentation format and submission procedures (i.e duration and timing of the presentation, size of poster, accepted file type for digital poster, uploading information etc) will be emailed to all delegates whose papers have been accepted by the Abstract Committee.
Abstracts selected for presentation during the conference will be printed from the electronically submitted material. Every effort will be made to reproduce the content of the abstracts as submitted. However, please be sure to carefully check your abstract for content errors, spelling, names, etc. before submitting. The Abstract Review Committee does not proof-read or correct spelling, typographical, grammatical, or scientific errors, nor can changes be made once the abstract is submitted.
Guidelines for abstract submission
Authors who submit an abstract of a paper confirm that they have not previously published these data, that they have not previously presented them at a large national annual scientific meeting, and that they are not planning to present or publish them prior to the dates of the Conference.
The Abstract Committee will evaluate the scientific quality of the submitted abstract on the basis of the following criteria: novelty of the research, significance of the findings, and clarity.
Authors should be particularly cognizant of the importance of setting forth the objectives and hypotheses of the study in a clear, succinct manner and of summarizing the new, unpublished results. If the abstract is poorly written such that the Abstract Committee cannot determine its novelty and importance, the paper will not be accepted for presentation at the conference.
Authors submitting abstracts for presentation at this workshop should consider the followings:
Abstracts must describe in a succinct manner the purposes and results of the research so that the quality, originality and comprehensiveness of the work can be evaluated by the International Scientific Committee. Each abstract should contain:
A Table can be included on maximum 5 columns and 10 rows and a picture can also be included of ……pixels. Also, word/PDF file of two pages can be uploaded for reference, which will not be sent to the review committee.
Titles should be indicative of the content of the abstract. All words necessary to identify the subject matter should be included in the title to facilitate electronic retrieval (if applicable). Avoid nonstandard abbreviations in abstract titles.
Abbreviations may be used in the body of an abstract if they are defined at their first mention in the text.
The length of the abstract body should not exceed 2,500 characters. The online submission module will not accept abstracts that exceed this word limit.
The accuracy of the submitted abstract is the responsibility of the authors. Every effort will be made to publish the abstract exactly as submitted. Authors should prepare and proofread their abstracts carefully prior to submission. Errors made on your submitted abstract are likely to appear in print.
Authors are strongly encouraged to print a hard copy of their abstract for their records before submitting.
All PRESENTERS must register to attend the ‘International Conference on Public Health Priorities in the 21st Century: The Endgame for Tobacco’and presenters will not be given a poster number or an oral presentation slot until full payment is received for their registration.
If an abstract is accepted and the PRESENTER does not register, the abstract may be withdrawn. By submitting an abstract, the submitting author authorizes the abstract to be published by the Conference in the means it deem fit.
After the abstracts have been submitted, a confirmation of receipt will be sent via e-mail. Notifications of abstract receipt will be sent to the ABSTRACT SUBMITTER only. Once an abstract has been submitted, it may be withdrawn or edited only till the abstract submission deadline.
Notification of Abstract Status
Abstract presenters will be notified by e-mail 6 weeks after the abstract submission deadline. Notices and instructions will be sent to the e-mail address provided at the time of abstract submission.
