Each poster must be submitted as a single page PDF document with a size of 1’080 by 1’536 pixels or 381 by 542 mm in portrait orientation.
In order to create your poster, you can download the poster templates (PowerPoint- or Keynote) which have already the right dimensions and recommended font sizes. Those templates only need to be exported into a PDF.
To download the templates: http://www.dasterminal.com/Poster-Templates.zip
All abstract presenters have been send an email with all the instructions to submit their e-poster(s) through a dedicated online system. The email was sent by dasterminal.com from the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have not received it, please check also your junk or spam folder.
If you have asked for the presenter change, it is possible that the original presenter has received the invitation link. Please check with this before contacting the ESA Secretariat.
- Submission start date: 15 April 2016
- Submission deadline: 15 May 2016 (23:59 CET)
Abstract submission is closed.
- Application is closed.
Abstracts will be displayed on an interactive e-poster terminal and discussed during the session.
E-Posters will need to be submitted electronically prior to the start of the congress (deadlines and detailed instructions will be available later)
A chairperson and a junior co-chairperson will conduct a short discussion of each poster with the presenter and the audience.
All abstracts accepted for presentation will be available in the European Journal of Anaesthesiology June 2016 e-supplement. They will also be available on the Congress electronic planner (accessible through a mobile application) and on the ESA website www.esahq.org
During the submission period, as long as you do not submit the abstract, it can be
saved, edited and revised online as many times as needed, until the submission
Once you have submitted an abstract, it is still possible to make corrections prior to
the submission deadline. However, the abstract has to be submitted again otherwise
it will stay in “draft” status and will not be considered for the review.
In the case of errors in the abstract discovered after the deadline, you can either
withdraw the abstract or – for minor errors – may indicate the correction during the presentation at the congress. However, changes will not be included in the published
version of the abstract.
Can I still change the presenter of my abstract after the submission deadline has been reached? How do I do that?
The original presenter must send a written request to the ESA Secretariat by e-mail to email@example.com including:
- The abstract’s ‘accepted number’ or ‘the submission number’;
- Its title;
- Statement specifying that you authorise “Dr. XWZ” (who must be one of the coauthors) to present it;
- The date of birth and a full address (including e-mail and phone) of the new presenter.
Please note that the change of presenter is NOT accepted or completed unless you receive a reply from the ESA Secretariat confirming the change of presenter.
The new presenter will of course have to pre-register by 23 March 2016.
The original presenter is responsible for providing the new presenter with all important information regarding the abstract presentation.
Please note that even if the presenter is changed according to this procedure, the order of the authors list will not be affected in any publication. It will be published as originally submitted.
If one of the co-authors is willing to present the abstract at the meeting, your registration can be transferred to him/her (for which an administrative fee will be charged: the standard rules about cancellations/refunds/name changes apply, with the understanding that the pre-registration of an abstract presenter must be finalised by 23 March 2016). Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and provide all details specified in the topic above about changing the presenter.
YES, but only if one of the co-authors pre-registers as presenter (see instructions on how to change the presenter) before the pre-registration deadline (23 March 2016) and presents the abstract.
If no one registers in time as presenter, your abstract will be withdrawn by ESA and removed from all Euroanaesthesia related publications (mobile app, abstract publication website(s) and Final Programme), and of course rejected for presentation at the congress itself.
According to my schedule, I have to present two abstracts in two different sessions that are at the same time. Can my schedule be changed?
No, it cannot. We try to avoid this from happening, but if a conflict occurs it can only be solved in the following way:
- Find one of the co-authors to present one of the abstracts for you.
- On site at the congress, make sure you go to the poster row where your abstract will be presented well in time and contact the chairperson of both sessions before the sessions start. Explain your case and ask the chairperson that you be allowed to be the first to present your abstract in one session and last in the other session. This way you can present both abstracts yourself.
When contacting the ESA Secretariat in relation to an abstract, please always mention the following data:
- The abstract submission number.
- The title of your abstract.
- In case you want to change the presenter: full contact details for the new presenter, including e-mail and phone.
