ABSTRACT EVALUATION

Abstracts will be selected by the Scientific Committee, based on the criteria outlined.
Quantitative abstracts will not be accepted without numerical data (e.g. mean and standard deviation, control percentage etc). Citations referring to bibliographic references in abstracts follow different criteria from those used in full articles.

Citations should be restricted to a minimum (no author names) and, if necessary, the abbreviated journal title should be used, followed by volume: first page-last page, year (e.g. Brain Res. 472:24-40, 1992). Citations like (Ashley et al., 1994) will not be accepted.
Abstracts should comply with the guidelines provided above and be submitted in a format that permits adequate graphical reproduction.

In cases of non-compliance to the list of items below, a revised versions of abstracts may be considered. Subsequent acceptance will be at the discretion of the Scientific Committee.

1. Area related to Immunology.
2. General interest of abstract theme.
3. Ethical clearance (research on humans and laboratory animals).
4. Language.
5. Definition of study material.
6. Definition of terms used.
7. Clear result description.
8. Conclusion outside the limitations of the results.
