GENERAL REMARKS

IMPORTANT
The author of abstract can only be first author on one abstract. However, authors can be co-authors on several abstracts.
By submitting an abstract, the authors certify that their work complies with the ethical guidelines for human and animal research. The abstract cannot be changed.

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.

THEME
– BRAIN AWARENESS WEEK
