Abstract Submission




The EVF invites you to submit an abstract(s) for consideration of presentation at the EVF 2022 meeting. Abstracts should be submitted by Saturday 19 February 2022 and typed in English. Selection will be based on originality and quality of work. All abstracts will be reviewed, blind, by the Scientific Committee. Authors will be notified on the committee’s decision by mid March 2022. The 30 best abstracts will be selected for oral presentation. The remaining abstracts will be considered for Poster Presentation.

Each abstract should include:

  • – Title
  • – Authors’ names: presenter’s names first (Surname, initial)
  • – Institution, City and Country
  • – Type abstract in English. Maximum of 425 words (excluding title, authors’ names and institution). Abstracts exceeding 425 words will be rejected. Abstracts should include: Background/Aim, Methods, Results, Conclusions.
  • – Abstracts must not contain brand or device names

The official language of the Conference is English. All presentations will be in English. Abstracts accepted for presentation will be printed in the Final Programme/Book of Abstracts distributed during the meeting.

The meeting is being planned as a hybrid event (a combination of in-person and virtual/online attendance). Depending on the situation with COVID-19 pandemic, we may have to change to virtual only.

All presenters will be asked to send a recording of their presentation (mp4) before the meeting. This will be used as a back-up in case of technical failure or if we have to move to a virtual event.
