  • Text must be in single line spacing.
  • All abstracts should be completed and submitted by Tuesday, 30th May 2023.

Guidelines for preparing your abstract:

  • The content of the abstract must be relevant to the field of Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH)
  • Abstracts can be up to 1.600 characters long (text body excl. figure or table), with additional 250 characters for the title (i.e. approximately 250 words to include the title and main body text.) 
  • The language of the conference is English. Therefore, all abstracts should be prepared in English.
  • The title should be as brief as possible, should not end with a full stop and should not include abbreviations.
  • For all authors, please provide the family name preceded by the initial(s) as well as the affiliation
  • A maximum of 10 authors is allowed

  • Criteria for rejection will include lack of data and lack of originality.  Do not use phrases such as "the results will be discussed".
  • Whilst it is possible for an author/presenter to submit more than one abstract, these abstracts should be obviously and significantly distinct from one another, in order to merit acceptance in their own right. Closely related results from the same study should be restricted to one abstract.
  • All abstract authors are required to submit a statement of any Interest in oral presentation as part of the abstract submission process. This statement will be printed in the abstract book as submitted, should be included on accepted posters audio and as a slide for accepted oral presenters.
