    (We suggest that the abstract not be written directly on the Form. It should rather be stored in a word processor and copied into the Form.)

  6. Once a paper is submitted, it will be regarded as definitive. Any later modifications may not be sent, nor will it be possible to make any changes or add different data to the poster format presented.
  7. In the case that several papers are presented that report repeatedly on different aspects of the same study population, the Scientific Committee reserves the right to accept only those that, in its opinion, are the most relevant.
  8. Authors shall indicate their surnames followed by the initials of their first name (eg. Sánchez Martínez, A). At least one of the authors shall be registered in the Conference before 22 September, 2015. A maximum of 6 authors are allowed per paper.
  9. If the same author participates in more than one paper, he or she must write his or her name in the same way on all of them, so that they can be properly shown in the index.
  10. The title shall be written in uppercase letters, without the use of abbreviations.
  11. The abstract should be written following the following structure: objectives, material, results and conclusions. Any conflict of interest shall be specified (as indicated in the Form). Do not leave any blank lines between paragraphs.
  12. Each paper must be classified by the author as belonging to one of the themes indicated in the paper submission form on the SEFH website. The final classification decision shall be made by the Scientific Committee. The Form shall also include 3 keywords that will enable the classification of the paper for online e-poster session searches.
  13. All Scientific Committee correspondence shall be sent to the first signing author, who will be informed about the acceptance or rejection of the paper. The decision shall be preferably sent by email and/or SMS or, in their absence, via fax or post. The first author must provide his or her email and mobile telephone number for any contacts from the Scientific Committee.
  14. Any paper submitted with a title or text that includes data identifying the institution or the authors shall be rejected.
