Oral Presentations

This year we wish to give a special emphasis to preanalytical cases. Thus, the limited number of abstracts with the most interesting preanalytical cases shall be selected to present their posters in the form of oral presentation during the conference program. Authors who wish to present the poster also as oral communication (in addition to the presentation as poster) are requested to mark the appropriate field on the on-line abstract-submission form.

General Requirements

The text must be clear, concise, and written in proper English. The content must not have been previously published in academic journals or subject to peer review. Significant technical information must not be withheld. Abstracts must absolutely contain results. Statements such as “results will be discussed” are not acceptable and will lead to rejection.

Structure of the abstract

Abstracts should not exceed 300 words and should be structured as follows:

Background: a brief introduction and aim of the study.
Materials and Methods: description of the subjects and methodology used in the work.
Results: results of the study with exact numbers and P values.
Conclusions: explain what is conclusion of your study.

All abstracts should be accompanied with 3-5 key words (to be included after the conclusions).

General Information

The Abstracts which are out of the scope of preanalytical phase are not going to be considered.
