Call for Posters

Guidelines for Poster submission

The Scientific Committee welcomes the submission of abstracts for poster presentation at the 12th International Symposium on Pediatric Pain.

The submission of abstracts has been closed.

Notification letters have been sent out to the authors.

In order to standardise the layout, we kindly ask you to read the guidelines carefully.

  1. Abstracts may be submitted online. Abstracts submitted via fax or email will not be accepted.
  2. The abstract must be submitted in English. Please use UK English spelling.
  3. Please make sure that name and email address of corresponding author are complete and correct.
  4. Provide a short specific title indicating the nature of the presentation. Data driven abstracts are preferred and the background and goals of the study should be clear to the reader. This should be followed by a succinct summary of methods, a description of results, and clear conclusions.
  5. Abstracts should contain only original material not published or presented elsewhere prior to submission.
  6. The title may not exceed 25 words including spaces. The abstract text may not be longer than 300 words.
  7. Tables, charts or other graphics may not be included and will be deleted by the editors.
  8. Although there is no limit to the number of abstracts an author may submit, redundancy is discouraged.
  9. Please limit the number of authors listed to those who have substantially contributed to the research. If authors’ names appear on more than one proposal, their names must appear and be spelled identically on each abstract in order to facilitate proper indexing. Wherever possible, do not list authors with initials only.
  10. Disclosure of potential conflict of interest (e.g. grant support, consultancy, membership on advisory councils, speaker’s bureau) by all authors and source of funding are mandatory. Each listed author should prepare a one sentence statement that will be published with the abstract. All disclosures should be listed for efforts conducted within the last 3 year.
  11. Do not use abbreviations in the title. Limit their use to commonly used abbreviations and expand all abbreviations at first mention.
  12. After having submitted your abstract, you will receive a confirmation by email with

    • Reference number of your abstract (for inquiry and correspondence purposes)
    • Your personal access code remains valid for future use (e.g. should you wish to edit or correct a submitted abstract, to submit further abstracts to the same or to future congress). Renewed entry of your contact details will be unnecessary. Submitted proposals may be edited up to the deadline of Thursday, 15 November 2018.

    If you do not receive a confirmation please contact us at ispp2019[at]

  13. Authors will be informed in January 2019 by email on the decision of the scientific committee (please make sure to state your correct email address). Detailed information on installation and presentation of posters will be mailed directly to authors of accepted abstract. Submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author(s) to present if accepted. The presenting author should be the submitting author.
  14. Presenting authors of accepted abstracts must register and attend the congress.
