Alternatively, if your abstract contains a figure or table you can upload a word document that complies with the formatting and word limit set out below. Only 1 figure or table is allowed.

The title should be typed in sentence case, using bold face. Follow on directly, using upper and lower cases, with the names and addresses of the authors, with the presenting author underlined. Leave one clear line between the addresses and the start of the body text. The abstract body should be structured using bold Background, Aims, Methods, Results, Summary/conclusions headings. For Greek or other special characters, use the “Symbols” font.  If symbols and super/sub script is to be used, to ensure the content is correctly received, please ensure that you attach a copy of the abstract as a word file (including title, authors, addresses and body text).
  5. On the form below, authors should also include correspondence details, including: full name, institution, address, email address, telephone number.
