Short-Call Abstracts

Rules for submission

  1. The aim of Short Call Abstracts is to present the newest, original and highest impact research in the field of thyroidology.
  2. The authors should indicate which of the three categories their work falls in: clinical, translational or basic. Abstracts should clearly state the following:
    - Presenting Author’s name (underlined) and full contact details, plus name and address of co-authors
    - Abstract title
  3. The data submitted to be selected as Short Call Abstracts must be new, not published before (including meeting/conference presentations). NOTE: the “short-call” abstracts call is ONLY for very recently obtained, high quality data and will be a competition for very few presentation opportunities. Abstracts that do not fit these criteria and are deemed to be simply “late”, will not be accepted.
  4. The data submitted to be selected as Short Call Abstracts must not become publicly available before the first day of the ETA meeting. This means that if the authors submit their data for publication in a scientific journal and the paper is accepted, they must request the publisher to embargo their publication until the first day of the ETA meeting. Otherwise the authors will be asked to withdraw their abstract from the ETA meeting.

  1. Abstracts will be evaluated according to the same rules as regular abstracts.
  2. The chosen number of abstracts will be selected for an oral presentation on Monday afternoon (9th September)
