Information Regarding Abstracts
The programme of the parallel sessions of the VI International Eastern Europe and Central Asia AIDS Conference (EECAAC 2018) will include presentations selected from submitted abstracts.
Participants of the conference are invited to submit abstracts (concise descriptions) of their research or selected topic.
If the participant wishes to present his abstract for an oral presentation, he should choose the option “oral presentation.” Regardless of the inclusion of an oral report in the program, submitted abstracts will be included in the collection of abstracts of EECAAC 2018. If a participant chooses to not be considered for an oral presentation, the option “abstract for publication” should be chosen. It is also possible to apply for a poster presentation.
Oral presentation, abstracts and poster presentations should focus on one of the predetermined topics outlined by the programme committees of the EECAAC 2018 within the tracks of “Science and Medicine,” “Effective Prevention,” “International Development Assistance,” and “Civil Society.”
- Abstracts are accepted in either Russian or English.
- The length of abstracts can range from 300 to 500 words.
- Abstracts should be structured as follows: title, introduction, purpose of the study, materials and methods, results, and conclusion.
- Each participant can submit no more than three (3) abstracts as the main author and an unlimited number as a co-author.
- Each author/co-author can present only one oral presentation.
- Only abstracts not previously published or submitted at other conferences can be submitted.
- All abbreviations, except for units of measure, can be used only after mentioning the full term.
- Text can not contain tables, graphics, or drawings.
Procedure for submitting abstracts
Abstracts can be submitted only through the official website of EECAAC 2018.
Abstracts of participants of the Conference are reviewed by the members of the Thesis Commission, which includes representatives of the Programme Committees and recognized experts on HIV and related issues.
All abstracts will be considered by the review commission. Each abstract will be evaluated by three independent experts. As a result of their evaluation, the commission will make one of four possible decisions: (1) recommend for oral presentation, (2) recommend as a poster presentation, (3) recommend for publication only or (4) reject. The authors will be notified of the commission’s decision by e-mail.
