• The title should be concise and reflect the study to be presented. The length of the title must be limited to 250 characters.
• The text of the abstract should not exceed 2500 characters including spaces (title and authorship/ affiliation not included).
• The abstract should be structured objectively and concisely, providing essential information under each heading. Suggested headings: Introduction, Objectives, Methods, Results, and Conclusion.
Case reports should be structured as follows: Case Presentation, Discussion, and Final Comments. Considering that case reports represent an important contribution to the exchange of experience between professionals, the Scientific Committee recommends only sending reports of common cases with atypical evolution or rare cases of major relevance.

In the case of an ongoing study, for example, the authors should present at least the preliminary results.
• Case reports without clear originality and relevance justifying their presentation will not be accepted. Papers limited to literature review only will also be rejected.

Please download the official template here.

 

We suggest you make the recording via Zoom, but you can use the one you prefer. Below you may find the main steps for performing it:

 - If you don’t have the app yet, you can download it here: https://zoom.us/download (Zoom Client for Meetings)

- Select [Settings], in the right corner of the main screen.

Select [Recording] and then select “Record video during screen sharing” and “Place video next to the shared screen in the recording”. This will avoid that your video covers information on your slides since it will be placed next to your slides during the recording, not superimposed to them.

- After confirming this configuration, please come back to the main window of zoom, and select [NEW MEETING]

- Once the new meeting starts, please check your video as informed on the item “Video information” and once you are ready to start, click on the “RECORD” button to start recording.

- When you finish the lecture, you can stop sharing the screen and select the “STOP RECORDING” button, which will be positioned next to the Share Screen button.

- After that, please exit the meeting. Once you leave, zoom will automatically generate an MP4 file with the recording.

Please check the video before you send it to us, to make sure that the lecture has the proposed time, and that your video and audio are working.
