Abstract Guidelines – IBD Nordic Conference 2018

The IBD Nordic Conference invites you to submit abstracts reporting new research or developing information on IBD. We welcome abstracts presenting unpublished studies, case reports, systematic reviews and scientific approaches on methodology and quality improvement. Studies presented in part on other meetings and recently published data can also be considered. The Scientific Program Committee will select abstracts on the basis of their medical significance, the quality of the data and methodology, and adherence to specific format requirements and other criteria described herein. The selected abstracts will be offered presentations as posters a few of these will also be selected for oral presentation.

Instructions for posters
Posters will be created online, using the iPosterSession system for multi-media interactive posters (ipostersessions.com). They will be displayed on large format HD touch screens at the conference. The iPosters will be available for exploration during the entire conference, and presenters are encouraged to be at their screens during the full poster session time (coffee breaks, see program).

IBD Nordic 2018 Poster Award
The best poster will be selected by the Scientific Program Committee and rewarded with a Research Grant of 2.500 Euro; the “IBD Nordic 2018 Poster Award”.
