IGCS 2020 is accepting abstracts for the following three types of presentation:
All abstracts must be in English.
If submitting for a Video Presentation, please select the topic Surgical Films – abstracts must be submitted as TEXT like a regular abstract – and if accepted we will advise you with details on how to send in your actual video for onsite presentation.
No changes can be made to abstracts once the abstract submission deadline has passed.
Submission of an abstract acknowledges your acceptance for the abstract to be published in the official meeting publications as well as in an online supplement to the International Journal of Gynecological Cancer. For any further information related to the Journal, please refer to: https://ijgc.bmj.com/
Presenting authors of accepted abstracts must be registered and paid participants. Registration must be received by the Secretariat by the Early Registration Deadline (to be updated) to ensure inclusion of the abstract in the meeting publications and in order to be scheduled for presentation.
Each person can present a maximum of 5 abstracts at IGCS 2020.
Abstracts received after the deadline will not be considered.
The Scientific Committee will determine the presentation type of each accepted abstract, with consideration given to the author’s preference. The committee’s decision is final.
The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission to the Secretariat.
Abstracts stating “data will be discussed in the presentation” will NOT be accepted.
Your abstract is not successfully submitted until you receive a confirmation e-mail after clicking the final submit button. If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, please contact Igcs2020@mci-group.com
Please note the submitting author will receive all correspondence about the abstract so we advise that the submitting author details that are entered at the time of submission match those details as those of the presenting author.
No changes can be made to abstracts once they are submitted and the abstract submission deadline has passed. You are welcome to bring an updated Poster onsite with you.
The presenting author is expected to attend the conference and present the poster or oral presentation. The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.
