ABSTRACT Guidelines

Abstract submission for NeuroGASTRO 2017 is closed!

Guidelines for Preparation
A title that clearly indicates the nature of the investigation needs to be provided.

Abbreviations should be avoided in titles, but may be used in the text if they are defined at first usage.

The authors’ names (full first names, family names) and places of work (institution, city, country) must be shown.

The abstract should be as informative as possible:

   1. State the specific objective of the study

   2. State the methods used, if pertinent

   3. Summarize the results obtained

   4. State the conclusions reached

A maximum of 10 authors can be added during submission of your abstract. In case where there are more than 10 authors, please use a group name. 

Please ensure that your abstract does not contain spelling, grammatical or scientific errors, as it will be reproduced exactly as submitted.
