GENERAL REMARKS

IMPORTANT
The first author of an abstract must be registered at the Congress and can only be first author on one abstract. However, authors can be co-authors on several abstracts.
Invited speakers must be first authors on the abstract of their presentation.
By submitting an abstract, the authors certify that their work complies with the ethical guidelines for human and animal research.

TIPS ABOUT THE FORMAT OF YOUR ABSTRACT
Prepare your abstract with your usual word processor, taking into account the following indications:

TITLE
Words of the title are used for abstract indexing. Therefore, you should avoid “meaningless” words (ex: evidence for, new insights, effects of, etc) and non-standard abbreviations (ex: GABA is standard but LH for “lateral hypertrophy” is not). Use lower case, except for standard abbreviations. The title must be in one paragraph. Maximum length: 200 characters.

ABSTRACT LENGTH
Abstract length is limited to 3000 characters. If your abstract is too long, you will be instructed to reduce the number of characters before you can continue the abstract submission process.

GREEK CHARACTERS AND SYMBOLS
You may use Greek characters or special symbols. Unusual fonts or symbols can appear as weird characters in your final text, please check carefully before submitting.

TABLES AND FIGURES
Tables and figures are allowed but reduce the length of your abstract by 100 characters each.
Your table is limited to 10 columns by 10 rows.

THEMES AND TOPICS
You will be asked to select one Theme /Subtheme. This selection is important because it will decide the particular session at which your poster will be displayed. Before selecting themes and topics, it is in your interest to ask yourself in which group of posters your contribution is likely to be viewed by the most interested participants.
