Since the Annual Meeting of the International Continence Society will be an accredited CME/CPD event, it is required that the highest educational standards, independence from commercial bias, and objectivity be promoted throughout the accredited educational sessions. In this effort, invited speakers, session chairs, co-chairs, oral presenters, etc. are asked to carefully read and submit full disclosure information. As this is mandatory per CME/CPD regulations, failure to do so will result in disqualification of CME credit points for your session.
10 key points towards a successful abstract submission!
Follow these steps to make the most of your submission!
- Read the submission rules! They are only 2 pages long and present key information.
- Lack of anonymity is automatic disqualification. Do not mention your name or the name of your clinic or university anywhere in your abstract text.
- The reviewers’ first score is for originality. If you’re presenting novel work, start the abstract with “this is the first….”or “this original…”.
- The next criterion is scientific merit. Your abstract must demonstrate your study to be scientifically sound.
- The methods of your abstract are scrupulously reviewed - make sure its a randomised trial or a well set up systematic review.
- Don’t split the results across several abstracts. Give absolute results and relative numbers.
- Ensure your conclusion responds to the question in your aims and is consistent with the results.
- Select the correct category and key words to ensure that your abstract is reviewed by someone in your discipline.
- For non-English speaking writers we recommend having your submission reviewed by someone who knows English well before submission.
- Make sure you use the correct and up to date ICS terminology. The use of obsolete terminology may cause rejection.
