Abstract FAQ

How can I amend my abstract?

It is still possible to make corrections to an abstract prior to the submission deadline, even if it has already been submitted. The abstract can be saved, edited and revised online as many times as needed until the submission period ends.

After the submission period, corrections are no longer possible. If errors are discovered in the abstract after the deadline, you can either withdraw the abstract or – for minor errors – indicate the correction during a presentation at the congress. Please note, changes will not be included in the published version of the abstract. We, therefore, recommend carefully review your abstract before submitting it on the dedicated submission platform.

Can I change the presenter of an Abstract after the submission deadline?

The abstract submitter can login to the abstract submission platform through his/her MyESAIC account and select, in the authors section, another presenter for the abstract. The new presenter must be selected among the authors of the abstract.

All mandatory information should be filled in as appropriate.

The new presenter must pre-register for the physical Congress by 29 March 2023.

If a change of presenter is requested after 29 March 2023, the new presenter has to be registered for the physical congress before the change is possible. The original presenter is responsible for providing the new presenter with all information previously sent by ESAIC regarding the abstract.

Important: the same presenter cannot be assigned more than 3 abstracts. Co-authors should be appointed as presenters if that is the case.

What is the registration process of the Abstract presenter?

If the abstract is accepted, the work must be presented in Glasgow and in-person at Euroanaesthesia 2023. There is no possibility to present the abstract online.

Presenters of accepted Abstracts must pre-register for the physical Congress before 29 March 2023!

If a presenter fails to register before 29 March:

  • The abstract(s) will not be published in the e-supplement of the European Journal of Anaesthesiology and will be rejected for presentation at the Congress.
  • The abstract(s) will be withdrawn by the ESAIC and removed from all Euroanaesthesia-related publications.

View the applicable Congress registration fees.

Important: the same presenter cannot be assigned more than 3 abstracts. Co-authors should be appointed as presenters if that is the case.

What are the Abstract publication details?

All accepted abstracts will be published in their entirety as an e-supplement to the European Journal of Anaesthesiology (EJA). Note that publication of the accepted abstract is dependent on pre-registration of the abstract presenter.

If accepted for presentation at the congress, the abstract will be published as entered into the abstract submission programme.

What is the Abstract presentation format?

Abstract presenters will be required to prepare an e-poster and make a short formal presentation  in front of the e-poster terminal.

Two chairpersons will conduct a short discussion of each abstract with the presenter and the audience, for every abstract in that session. In each session, up to 12 abstracts can be presented.

Abstract presentation will only take place onsite at Euroanaesthesia in Glasgow, Scotland. Virtual/online presentations will not be organised.

What if there are time conflicts when presenting several abstracts?

We usually avoid scheduling several abstract presentations by the same person at the same time. Unfortunately, considering the high number of abstracts presented at the Congress, time conflicts may still occur and presentations cannot be rescheduled. Should this happen, please consider the following options:

  • Ask a co-author attending the congress to present one of the abstracts for you.
  • Ask the chairpersons of the sessions in which your abstracts have been scheduled to be the first to present in one session and the last in the other. This way you can present both abstracts yourself.

I still have an unanswered question. Whom can I contact?

If you have any questions regarding your abstract submission, please contact the ESAIC Secretariat via abstracts@esaic.org.

When contacting the ESAIC Secretariat in relation to an abstract, please always mention the abstract reference (#xxxx) and title.
