Call for Abstract


The Organisers of the European Congress of Clinical Neurophysiology 2017 thank you for submitting abstracts for oral or poster presentations.

On-line Abstract Submission



Online abstract submission opens: 31 January, 2017
Online abstract submission deadline: 31 March, 2017 – CLOSED
Notification of authors: 15 May, 2017

Upon receipt of your submission, the system will automatically issue a confirmation e-mail to the submitting author. If the confirmation e-mail is not found in your in-box, please check your spam folder because some e-mail hosts might consider the abstract system’s mail as spam.
If you do not find the confirmation e-mail, please contact us at:

You can modify/delete/change your abstract at any time during the abstract submission period.

IMPORTANT REQUIREMENTS (Please check carefully!)

  • Abstracts should be submitted electronically by the deadline.
  • You may submit as many abstracts as you like.
  • Abstracts must be submitted in English.
  • Abstracts should disclose primary findings along with relevant statistics, and avoid promissory statements such as “results will be discussed”.
  • Abstracts will be printed and published as they are submitted. Abstract title will be subject to a spell check if the abstract is selected for presentation.
  • If changes to your abstract are necessary, you can make them in the on-line abstract submission system during the submission period, after logging in and choosing the „Modify” button. If changes are necessary after the end of the on-line submission period please notify the Congress Secretariat at
  • Submission of the abstract constitutes the authors consent to publication.
  • Presenters of accepted abstracts must register for the Congress by the early-bird deadline.
  • Presenters who are unable to attend the congress should arrange for another individual to present the paper.


Notification regarding abstract acceptance/rejection will be sent by 15 May, 2017. If you DO NOT receive notification by 15 May, 2017, please send an e-mail to


  1. Abstract length: Abstracts should not exceed 250 words. The title, authors and institutions are excluded. Abstracts should contain concise statements of:
    • Objectives: indicate the purpose and objective of the research, or give a description of the problem being investigated.
    • Methods: describe the study settings, design, methods of data collection and analysis.
    • Results: clearly present the findings of the investigation.
    • Discussion: discuss the results and provide future implications
    • Conclusions: summarize the main conclusions of the work
    • Significance: explore the significance of your findings
  2. Text formatting and special characters: Font type and size are not specified. The text should be in single-column format, do not use the word processor's options to justify text or to hyphenate words. However, do use bold face, italics, subscripts, superscripts etc. If you copy and paste text from a word document special characters or formatting may not transfer. In this case please replace special characters and/or insert formatting tags using the character palette in the abstract submission system.
  3. Authors: Please enter all submitting authors in the order they should appear in the heading of the abstract. Presenting author should be marked.
  4. Institutions: Enter institutional affiliations of all submitting authors.
  5. Keywords: You are required to submit at least two key words.
