Abstract Categories

Submitters of abstracts have to clearly indicate if their abstract is a scientific oral presentation, a scientific poster or an educational poster. This year, abstracts can be submitted for the SGR-SSR, the SGNM-SSMN or for the SVMTRA-ASTRM. Moreover, as in previous years, the Swiss Society of Radiology and the Swiss Society of Nuclear Medicine will join together and offer a joint scientific session. The latter is most suitable for contributions on oncologic imaging (scientific oral presentations only).

Medical physicists, especially members of the Swiss Society of Radiobiology and Medical Physics shall submit their abstract for the SGR-SSR, under the topic Medical Physics and Basic Science.

Thus, submitters must indicate whether their abstracts are most suited for the scientific sessions of the Swiss Society of Radiology, for the scientific sessions of the Swiss Society of Nuclear Medicine, for the joint scientific session of the Swiss Society of Nuclear Medicine and of the Swiss Society of Radiology, or for the SVMTRA-ASTRM. The Scientific Programme Committee reserves the right to change the presentation type in selected cases.

Abstract Structure

All abstracts for SGR-SSR, for SGNM-SSMN and for the joint session SGR-SSR/SGNM-SSMN have to be submitted in English. The abstracts for SVMTRA-ASTRM can also be submitted in German or French. In all cases, the abstracts cannot be longer than 250 words. There is no formal limitation on the number of authors. Case reports are not accepted, apart for abstracts submitted for posters SGNM-SSMN.

Review Process

All abstracts will be reviewed by a board of experts. The review process meets highest scientific standards as it is based on a blinded peer review process. Based on several criteria, an overall quality score is assigned to each abstract, which provides the basis for acceptance or rejection of an individual abstract. Please note that the number of oral presentations and posters is limited due to time restraints during the scientific session and exhibition space at the congress center. Thus, abstracts with the lowest quality scores will be rejected.

Notification of Acceptance

A notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent out in February 2019 by email. If you wish to withdraw your paper after notification of acceptance or if you will not be able to attend the meeting, please inform the Congress Management as early as possible.

Congress Registration

Only presentations and posters of presenters who have paid the appropriate registration fee will be accepted for the congress of the SGR-SSR and SGNM-SSMN. If the presenting author is not registered until March 20, 2019, his abstract will not be published in the abstract book and he will not be allowed to hold the presentation or hang his poster. Please note that this regulation is not applying to abstracts submitted for SVMTRA-ASTRM!
