Submission Frequently asked questions

The WCPD2021 Abstract Selection Committee invites all ISPD, BSPD Members, all Non-member and their colleagues to submit papers for presentation at the WCPD2021 in September 2021.

There is no fee for making a submission.  If your submission is accepted for presentation, then the presenting author will be required to attend the Congress and pay the appropriate registration fee. Authors who submitted to the main meeting will be notified in early May 2021 and the presenter will still be able to take advantage of the earlybird rate.

  1. Log in to the submission system when your abstract is completed and ready to send. To log in, if you are a new user you will be asked to create an account or if you have used the system before you will be asked to register with your email address and password.
  2. When you click the “log in” button you will be taken to a screen from which the submission process starts. Please read the instructions on this screen carefully.
  3. Submitting an abstract is a multi-step process. Each step asks several questions:
  • Step 1: You can copy the abstract title and abstract text from your Word document and paste it into the submission box. Please note that because of web browser limitations some scientific symbols may not paste correctly into the form – you may have to correct this by writing the name of the symbol in full, for example “beta” instead of β.
  • All steps: Some questions will be mandatory. We cannot accept your abstract until these questions have been answered.
  • All steps: If you do not know the answer to a question – for example you may not be sure in which category your abstract should be presented – you can skip the question and return on a later occasion to complete it.
  • Final step: once you have completed this step click the ‘Submit’ button. If you have answered all the mandatory questions, then your abstract will be assigned a reference number and you will receive email confirmation. If you have not answered all the mandatory questions your abstract will be held until you return later and complete all the questions.
  • If you are submitting more than one abstract, you can use the same email address and password for each abstract.
  • Abstracts are required for all oral and poster presentations. Abstracts MUST be submitted online.
  • Please read the author instructions carefully before submitting your abstract.
  • Authors can use tables. Please note that table text will count toward your maximum word count of 400.
  • Images are not allowed as part of the abstract.
  • An anonymous selection process will be used: therefore, please do not use identifying features such as names of authors, hospitals, medical schools, clinics or cities in the title or text of the abstract. Any author not adhering to this rule may have their paper rejected.
  • The work to be presented should be original and not already published as a full paper or published as an abstract at a National or International meeting. Please declare any previous publication or presentation of the same abstract in the submission form.

Encore abstracts will be considered but this will depend on where and when the original data has been presented. Please include these details in the submission process section. They may not be accepted if presented to a similar audience

Abstracts giving an overview of a relevant clinical topic but not containing primary results will not be considered.

Yes these will potentially be considered.

Please ensure that you check your abstract carefully before submitting to ensure it is the final version.  Any amendments you wish to make prior to the submission deadline can be made on the online submission system. If you do wish to make any amendments to your abstract once you have received notification that it has been accepted, you will need to email conference@bad.org.uk It will not be possible to change content at this stage, just authors and affiliations.
