ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE:

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
We invite all Audiologists, Otologists, Neurotologists, Otolaryngologists, Phoniatricians, Phoneticians, Speech and language therapists to show their research, case studies and clinical research at the 16th European Federation Audiology Societies Congress 2023 in Sibenik, Croatia, May 3 - 6, 2023. Audiology is a multi-disciplinary science with strong foundations in technical (i.e., engineering, physics, computer science, biology and psychology), pedagogical, and medical audiology that are all strongly connected to advance the field in big steps. Even though hard work is hidden behind the research outcomes and best-practice procedures to maintain the high standards of audiology in Europe, this is also fun - as can be seen from the very friendly and open atmosphere prevailing at the EFAS Congresses. Convince yourselves during the upcoming congress in Sibenik, Croatia, in 2023!
This conference will be held in person. We acknowledge that travel plans may be disrupted by travel restrictions placed on some attendees by their company or country due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We know this is difficult to anticipate. Please do not let this uncertainty discourage you from submitting an abstract. If you are selected for an oral presentation or to present a poster, but are subsequently prevented from travelling to Sibenik (Croatia), we will work with you to find a solution that will still allow you to participate.
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION GUIDELINE
All abstracts must be written in English.
All abstracts must be submitted on-line through the abstract submission system by deadline December 5th, 2022, by 23:59 CET. Abstracts that are sent via e-mail will not be included in the abstract assessment process.
Always make sure to check the final abstract with the system's preview function before submission and edit or replace as necessary. It is the author's responsibility to submit a correct abstract. Any errors in spelling, grammar or scientific fact will be reproduced as typed by the author.
The submitting and presenting authors are required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before the submission.
The presenting author will be required to register for the conference if their abstract is accepted.
EFAS 2023 reserves the right to exclude any abstract from the scientific program that is not followed by a participant registration.
Withdrawal of abstracts is only accepted if notified in writing and subsequently confirmed by the EFAS 2023 Meeting Organizing Secretariat.
Only the accepted abstracts of presenting authors who have paid their registration fees by abstract registration deadline, February 6th, 2023 will be included in the final Scientific Program and published in the meeting abstract e-book.
Preferred presentation types: One of the below presentation options can be selected.
Institution(s): The institution(s) of the authors should be indicated fully with the "department" and "institution" names while avoiding any abbreviations such as Dept., Inst., Hosp., etc. Please include the City and Country for each institution. Do not include title or degrees.
Enter each affiliation only once: i.e., if there are 5 authors and 3 of whom are from same affiliation and 2 of whom are from another, you will have 2 institutions, NOT 5. However, if there are 2 or more departments at the same institution represented, they can be entered separately.
If any of the authors have more than one affiliation, enter both affiliations in a compounded style as one affiliation: i.e., if there are 5 authors and 2 of whom are from same affiliation (Institute A), 2 of whom are from another (Institute B), and 1 of whom is from both affiliations (Institutes A and B), you will have 3 institutions, NOT 5 or NOT 2. (First institution: Institute A, second one: Institute B and the third one: Institute A & Institute B). Include the City and Country for each affiliation.
Author(s): First, middle and last names of all the authors must be fully indicated correctly and in the right order. Please pay attention to match the institutions to the right authors, and make sure that you select the “presenting author” correctly.
Presenting Author Information: Please enter the presenting author’s contact information.
Abstract Title: Abstract title can contain a maximum of 250 characters.
Abstract Body: The abstract must not exceed 2,500 characters including spaces. The title of the abstract, authors' names, institutions and key words are not included in this limit, and those should not be entered in this section.
Abstract texts should be consisting of four sections given below:
- Background and Aim
Standard scientific abbreviations may be used - non-standard abbreviations should be included in parenthesis after the first use of the full word.
Present sufficient data to support conclusions - it is unsatisfactory to use statements such as 'data will be presented' or 'results will be discussed'.
Check spelling and grammar. Submitted material will be published in meeting materials - the abstract should, therefore, contain no errors.
Abstracts must not contain copyrighted material unless the author has obtained permission.
Keywords: Minimum 1 keyword is required, and maximum 6 keywords can be entered. All keywords should be separated with commas.
Tables and Figures: Up to 2 tables and/or figures (e.g., 2 tables, 2 figures or 1 table and 1 figure) can be uploaded. Do not exceed this limit or the abstract will be returned. Each table and/or figure should be uploaded separately. Tables and Figures do NOT count toward the 2500 characters count.
Conflict of Interest: Presenting author must declare if he/she have any conflict of interests in their abstract with selecting Yes/No option.
Please do not submit multiple copies of the same abstract.
Please note your username and password for future use. If you forget this information, please get in contact with the Meeting Organising Secretaria.
No edits are allowed after submitting your abstract.
Please ensure that the e-mail address of presenting author is entered correctly to enable the Meeting Organising Secretariat to communicate the presenting author regarding the abstract. All information regarding the acceptance, any required adjustments, and scheduling will be communicated via e-mail to the abstract’s presenting author.
When the submission process is finalized, you will see your abstract under the heading "Submitted Abstracts". If your abstract is not seen there, please kindly turn back and check the steps of your submission. Please be aware that the Scientific Committee will not receive "Not-Submitted Abstracts" and these therefore CANNOT be taken into consideration in the abstract evaluation process.
Upon submitting of your abstract an e-mail including the "Abstract Number" and "Abstract Title" will be sent to the submitting author.
