Submissions

Overview

The FIT’NG Conference is closed to regular abstract submissions for the first Annual Conference to be held September 5-6, 2022 in Paris, France at the Sorbonne. However, we are still accepting LATE BREAKING POSTER​ entries until May 31st. Submission guidelines are described below. Clink on “submit” to proceed. 

The 2-day conference will be comprised of invited symposia, oral presentations, and poster sessions. We encourage the FIT’NG community to submit their research for the upcoming conference.

Submission Guidelines

Submissions are encouraged from all FIT’NG Members and those working in the field.  If you are not yet a member, click here to join FIT’NG.

Dedicated oral and poster sessions will be scheduled during the conference for individual, free-standing research presentations.  Flash talks will also be considered for submissions. Posters are an appropriate format when material can be explained briefly, is suited for graphic or visual presentation, and/or the presenter would benefit from high levels of interaction and discussion. We encourage lively debate and discussion during these interactive poster sessions.

Submissions will be considered for an oral or a poster based on preference of the submitter, but also scoring of the submission, as well as topic and fit with the program.  Submissions may also be considered for flash talks.

If you want to align your submission with others for a possible symposia presentation, please email with the abstract numbers of those submissions you propose to be grouped together.

Submission Process

  • Prepare an abstract title (max 200-character limit)
  • Enter your contact name, affiliation/institution name and email address (please note authors may specify only one affiliation).
  • Enter all corresponding authors in the order they should appear in the program. Ensure the submission has been approved by all authors.  Remember to include yourself on the author list if you are an author submitting a poster.  Please note: author information will appear in the conference program exactly as it is entered into the submission software!
  • Select a theme that most closely aligns with your submission.
  • Include an abstract (max 3500 characters – 500 words). Abstracts should be submitted in plain text and they will be formatted for the program.  Please note: when submitting the abstract cut and paste it from a text editor (i.e. notepad, wordpad) to ensure it does not include underlying formatting that may cause errors. Do not copy/paste from a Word document as additional hidden formatting could be inserted into the submission.
  • Abstracts should not report findings that will be published elsewhere prior to the meeting, although presentation of the work at a recent meeting (e.g., within a year) of another society is acceptable.
  • The abstract should state the study’s objective, methods, results, and conclusions. Abstracts should emphasize the significance of results and general principles over description of common methods and procedures.
  • Graphics are encouraged but not required. You can upload one file. The file must be in Adobe PDF Format and you will upload the document at the end of the submission process.  If you submit anything other than a PDF document, it will not be viewable.

 

*By submitting an abstract, you agree to present at the FIT’NG Conference should your abstract be selected for the program.

*Individual Oral submissions will automatically be considered for a Poster should they not be accepted as an oral presentation. The submitting author will be notified of this change in the acceptance email.
