Abstract submission

Closing abstract submission: November 18, 2020

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, as well as for the Joint scientific session SSRMP/SGR-SSR and the Joint scientific session SSRMP/SGNM-SSMN.

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 scientific sessions of the Swiss Association of Radiographers or for the joint scientific session of the Swiss Society of Radiobiology and Medical Physics & of the Swiss Society of Radiology. The Scientific Programme Committee reserves the right to change the presentation type in selected cases.

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.

Rating criteria:
– Clarity of study design (if original) or learning objectives (if educational)
– Importance for patient care
– Overall quality of the abstract

Notification of Acceptance

Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent out in February and March 2021 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 Services 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. If the presenting author is not registered until March 25, 2021, his abstract will not be published in the abstract book and he will not be allowed to hold the presentation or hang his poster.
