Instructions for abstracts

General information.

Abstract submission will open: December 1, 2021
Submission deadline: April 5, 2022  Extended deadline for abstract submission - April 19th
Author notification: May 8, 2022

SSSH welcomes different kinds of abstracts. 

You may state if you wish to present as an oral presentation or a poster. The time available for oral presentations is limited, and the scientific committee will decide if you will be given the choice of presenting your work as a poster instead of an oral presentation. The length of the oral presentation will be 5-10 min, with a few minutes for questions. 

Thesis – Any member of SSSH who has defended a thesis since the last SSSH meeting will be given the opportunity to make a brief oral presentation of their work. To apply for a presentation, send in the abstract from your thesis. The length of the oral presentation will be 10 -15 min, depending on available time. You will also be able to include a longer presentation as a film made available through the conference webpage/app. The file should be in mp4 format in normal resolution. 

Original scientific study – The abstract is limited to 250 words under the subheadings: Background, Method, Results and Conclusion

Case report / Technical note – Case reports and technical tips and tricks of general interest can be accepted depending on available space. The abstract is limited to 250 words of free text. 

Analogue posters – Yes, we like the old fashioned posters! The scientific committee will select a number of posters for conventional printed display. These posters will be cued at a short “pitch a poster” session, and the author shall be present at the displayed poster at a scheduled “poster walk”. Posters selected for display will be notified by the program committee.

Best national abstract, young researcher.
The scientific committee of the meeting will choose one abstract from each member society by a younger researcher to be granted with a free entrance to the event. The winners will be notified latest by author notification deadline. If a winner has already paid the entrance fee, this will be refunded.


Size of posters, width 70 cm x height 90 cm.
