General Policies and Requirements

  • All abstracts must be original work. An abstract should not be submitted if the work is to be published/presented at a major international meeting prior to the Hypertension Sydney 2012.
  • All abstracts must be prepared according to the guidelines provided. Submissions will be returned to the author without review if not in the correct format and must be resubmitted immediately in the correct format to be reviewed and considered for inclusion in the program.
  • The presenting author only must submit the abstract.
  • The presenting author will be required to register and pay for the Meeting to ensure their abstract(s) are included in the final program and abstract publication. Deadline for author registration is 10 August 2012.
  • Do not resubmit an abstract for any reason other than a notified submission error. If you do not receive a confirmation email with a receipt number confirming that your abstract was successfully uploaded, please contact the Meeting Managers.
  • It is the responsibility of the presenting author to ensure that the abstract is submitted correctly. After an author has submitted their abstract, they must check their submissions, which will be converted to a PDF file, to ensure the document has been uploaded correctly.
  • There is no limit to the number of abstracts that may be submitted by an individual. However, splitting of a body of work into multiple abstracts is discouraged and consolidation into one abstract is preferred.
  • Abstracts will be reviewed by the appointed Meeting abstract reviewers.
