Using the email address provided during submission, the submitting author will be notified as to whether or not their abstract has been accepted. Specific dates and times of presentation will be provided as soon as the program is completed and submitting authors will be required to confirm by the advised date that they will attend the conference and present their presentation.
If you need to withdraw your abstract, a written statement reflecting the reasons for this decision must be sent to: [email protected]
Review and Selection
Abstracts will be double blind reviewed by a panel of experts selected by the LTWRAP Program Committee. Selection will be based on the abstract review scoring criteria. The decisions of the review process are final and cannot be disputed.
A condition of abstract acceptance is that at least one of the presenting authors must register to attend as a full delegate and pay the appropriate registration fee by the advised date. Should one of the presenting authors not register by this time, the presentation may be removed from the program. A co-presenter is permitted on the basis that they have registered for the day of their presentation. Where there is more than one presenter, it is important that the presentation time is strictly adhered to, so enough time is available for questions.
All abstracts accepted for presentation may be published in the official abstract book of the conference. It is envisaged that this will be through a JMIRS (Journal of Medical Radiation Sciences) abstract supplement, and will be available through the Conference website. As this is published in JMIRS you need to ensure that local and international ethical standards are complied with.
Conference website/Abstract Book
By submitting an abstract presenters give permission for their name, bio and image (if uploaded) to be available through the Conference website, and in delegate lists.
