Terms and Conditions

The submission of an abstract indicates an understanding of the following rules for participation in WCPAG Congress 2019

  • All author(s) approve submitting this work for presentation.
  • The author(s) transfer(s) all copyright ownership of the named abstract to WCPAG Congress 2019.
  • The author(s) agree(s) to materially confine their presentations to information in the abstract if accepted for presentation. If an author has more than one abstract accepted, each presentation will be materially confined to the information in the abstract selected for the specific session.
  • The presenting author will be available to present the abstract if selected for the program. The presenting author will immediately notify the WCPAH Congress 2019 Secretariat if they are unable to present an abstract or if the presenting author changes.
  • Submission of the contact details provided are those of the presenter of the abstract. He/she will be notified about the status of the abstract and is responsible for informing the other authors about the status of the abstract.
  • Submission of the abstract constitutes consent of all authors of the abstract to publication (e.g, WCPAG website, programs, other promotions).
  • All authors of the abstract warrant and represent that they either are the sole owners of, or have all necessary rights to, sublicense all the information and content in the abstract provided to WCPAG and its WCPAG organisers, and that publication of the abstract does not infringe any rights, including but not limited to, intellectual property rights, or of any third parties.

  • WCPAG reserves the right to remove from any publication any abstract that does not comply with the above.

Abstract evaluations

Abstracts will be evaluated based on the information included in the abstract. Abstracts need to be based on available data. Statements such as “data will be available at the meeting” will typically lead to rejection of an abstract.

Abstracts will be peer reviewed, and this process will be managed by the Scientific Committee.

Accepted abstracts will be selected by the Organising Committee for an oral presentation or for presentation during a poster session. Authors will be invited to indicate a preference for oral or poster presentation however the final decision on presentation format will be made by the program committee.
