Abstract Submission Regulations


Each registrant may submit one abstract of his/her work as presenter. The registrant can select to have their abstract considered for an oral or poster format. It is expected that the abstract will include recent work. Inclusion of original work not previously published is highly encouraged.

Only those abstracts that have been reviewed and selected by the Abstract Review Committee may be presented. Abstract submissions will only be accepted electronically through the abstract submission module.

With the submission of an abstract to HGM 2021 Conference, the first author (presenting author):

  • Accepts responsibility for the accuracy of the submitted abstract.
  • Confirms that all authors are aware of and agree to the content of the abstract and support the data presented.
  • Identifies any financial interest in products or processes described in the abstract. This information is to be forwarded to the Scientific Committee together with the abstract.
  • Agrees that the acceptance of an abstract does not imply provision of travel, accommodation or registration for the meeting, nor any other costs associated with preparation or presentation of the abstract, and any costs associated with attendance at the meeting
  • Gives HUGO permission to publish your abstract, PowerPoint presentation and/or Poster on the Conference or HUGO HGM 2021 website and all other conference materials.
  • Gives HUGO permission to film or photograph your presentation at the meeting.

Only the submitting author will receive a confirmation/abstract number by e-mail from the HGM2021 Conference Secretariat within 48 hours of submission. This confirmation of abstract receipt is NOT a notice of acceptance to the program.

If you do not receive any confirmation within 48 hours, please contact the Conference Secretariat within one week following the submission of the abstract.




Please note that submitting an abstract does not automatically register you as a delegate. All authors
who submit an abstract are required to register for the meeting upon acceptance of the abstract.
Failure to register will result in the abstract being withdrawn.

If the presenting author is unable to attend the conference, please notify us of an alternative
presenter or withdraw the abstract. Any alternative presenter must also register for the conference.


Abstract Selection Process


Only abstracts submitted online can be accepted. Abstracts submitted by e-mail attachment will not be considered.

The Scientific Committee will make the selection of abstracts for oral and poster presentations by Mid-August, 2020.

From Mid-August 2020, the submitting author will be notified about the result of the review and the Scientific Committee’s decision on the abstract.
If a selected author cannot attend, the presenting author should assign a replacement.

Please note that applicants may be offered a presentation format different to that applied for and not all applications may be accepted.


Abstract Format


In order to be considered, an abstract should respect the following guidelines:

  • English is the official language.

  • Commercial names may not be used in the abstract title.
