INSTRUCTIONS

REGISTER AS A USER IN THE ABSTRACT SYSTEM

Click on the abstract submission link above. Create a new User ID. The system will automatically prompt you with a message to register your details if you have not yet done so. 

You will be sent an email confirming your password to access the abstract submission system.

IMPORTANT

Please remember that submitting an abstract does NOT automatically register you as a conference delegate. BMFMS registration can be done online at a later date. Registration is now open.

If the abstract presenter has not registered for the meeting by 12 February 2018 the abstract will be considered to be withdrawn. No extensions will be given to this deadline. It is important that the presenter includes their abstract number in their conference registration so that the organiser can match this up.

All communications about your abstract submission will be sent to the email address you submitted. 

We recommend that the user ID and email belong to the main author that will be presenting at the conference.


SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT
 

Locate your abstract file on your computer’s hard disk so you can copy/paste the information easily into the text-based submission form’s fields. Abstracts should have a maximum word count of 250 words. Please note, you may use a table in your abstract but figures and images can not be uploaded.  If you have any questions please email bmfms@hamptonmedical.com

Go to the Abstract Submission System Log-in page

Enter your email address and the password you chose when you first registered as a user, or create a new log in. 

Click the log in button and you will be taken to a screen from which the submission process starts. On this screen you can amend a previous submission (until the submissions deadline date) or create a new submission.

Please read the instructions on screen carefully. The abstract submission is a multi-step process and the site will guide you through adding a submission.


STEP 1
: TITLE

Enter the title and abstract text, by either copy/pasting from your word file or typing in the information. Remember there is a 50 word limit for the title.

The title should be as brief as possible but long enough to indicate clearly the nature of the abstract. If you wish to include a subtitle, it must be included in this field and included in the 50 word limit. Please do not fill in the whole title using CAPs. CAPs should only be used for the first letter of the first word unless typing a name, proper noun or acronym.
Make sure you do not include author names and/or affiliations in the title as this information will be added in the next step.  

STEP 2: AFFILIATIONS & AUTHORS 
ENTER information about the authors and affiliations (including yourself if you are an author). You should add them in the order in which you wish them to appear in the printed text. Names omitted here will NOT be printed in the author index or the final program. Please ensure the spelling of their names and affiliations is correct. 

AUTHORS: Enter the name and contact details of the first author here.  If they are a presenting author please indicate here

AFFILIATIONS: Please enter the details of the affiliations for the first author, additional affiliations can be added.

Second, third, and any following authors can then be added.

STEP 3: ABSTRACT (MAX. 250 WORDS)

Any abstracts exceeding the word limit will not be accepted. 

References are not required. If you wish to include them, they must be included in the body of your text and included in the 250 word count.

Special symbols and formatting are to be used sparingly. Once your submission is complete, please read your abstract in full to ensure the symbols are displayed correctly, and if not, please click on the “Insert Symbol” icon on the screen to see the list of available symbols. 

You may include a table but you are not able to upload figures or images. 

Proposed studies/presentations should be significantly advanced or completed at the time of abstract submission. 

Please make sure you have proofread your submission before the submission deadline, as changes can not then be made.
