Step-by-step explanation of the abstract system

Please use the following instruction to follow the submission steps:

1. Log in or create a new account (Be aware that an account could already exist if you have registered for other relevant events like the last neuroRAD or the Röko International. If the system reports that your mail already has an account, please click on “Passwort vergessen?”. You will get a mail with your new password.)

2. Click on the button “Abstracteinreichung”. On the next site click on the green button “Ein Abstract einreichen”. From there you will start your abstract submission. With the button “Weiter” at the right end of every page, you will get from one step to another.

3. First choose, which type of abstract you want to submit. You can choose between scientific abstracts (Wissenschaftliches Abstract) or case abstracts (Case-Abstract). Below you can find further details to the abstract types.

4. Choose the category in which you want to submit your abstract. You can choose from the following:

Scientific abstracts | Wissenschaftliche Abstracts

Case Abstracts

  1. Interventional-Video-Case
  2. Diagnostic-Case

5. Type in your abstract title (The title will automatically be incorporated into your abstract. So, don’t list your title in the abstract document!).

You can't choose your preferred presentation, but please note the following notes regarding the abstract submission:

  • Scientific abstracts: in the form of a two-minute video podcast (Power Pitch).
  • Interventional video case abstracts: in the form of an approximately eight-minute video.
  • Diagnostic case abstracts: in the form of a five-minute presentation.

6. Upload of your abstract. Download the abstract template (download the template under the button “Hier können Sie die Abstract-Vorlage herunterladen“) and fill-in your abstract content. Follow the following guidelines:

  • Don't list your title in the abstract, it was automatically incorporated.
  • To submit your case abstract, you also have to use the abstract template. Below you can find a instruction on how to fill out the template.
  • Abstracts can only contain a maximum of 2.200 characters.
  • Charts and images can be included.
  • Upload your abstract with the button “Abstract-Dokument hochladen”.
  • The system will check the abstract and will give you an immediate response. If it shows red, a mistake has occurred, please check the guidelines again. Green means that everything is correct and you can go on.

7. Insert your authors with the button “Autor*in hinzufügen”. If you are an author yourself use the button “Ich bin Autor*in”. Follow the following guidelines:

  • Please add the respective institutional affiliation to each author. To do so, click on the button "Zugehörigkeit hinzufügen" and there you can select the institution / clinic / company using the Google search function and, if necessary, expand or modify it.
  • By clicking on the small picture, you identify the first author / main author.
  • The order of the authors can be changed via the small arrows next to the respective authors. Please put your first author/lead author first.

8. Choose the speaker which will present the abstract. (For yourself, click on “Ich werde Sprecher*in sein”; for another author, click on “Sprecher*in auswählen”).

9. State your disclosure statement – choose from the following options:

  • I declare, as the sole author, that during the last 3 years I have had no economic or personal connections in the sense outlined*.
  • As the corresponding author, I declare that I and my co-authors have not had any economic or personal connections in the sense outlined* for the last 3 years.
  • As a Corresponding Author, I declare that I or one or more of my co-authors have had commercial or personal connections during the past three years, as defined*. The connections are listed accordingly and / or will be forwarded by e-mail to katharina.pracht@kukm.de. (You can type your connections into the right field)

* A potential conflict of interest within the meaning of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE, www.icmje.com) and the Association of Scientific Medical Societies (AWMF, www.awmf.de) exists if an author has economic or personal links to companies in the healthcare industry (e.g. pharmaceutical or medical device industry), commercially oriented contracting institutes or insurance companies, which could be affected by the publication of his project positively or negatively. Economic connections are for example memberships in advisory boards, employment relationships, travel allowances, fees, shareholdings, research grants or other third-party funds. Personal connections may exist when there are connections to someone whose economic or moral concerns are affected by the abstract (for example, family connections, partnerships, or personal relationships with representatives of a healthcare organization). There may also be a conflict of interest with members of professional societies or professional associations relevant to the development of the guideline, as well as with the mandate holders in the context of guideline development. Also interests - e.g. political, academic (for example, affiliation to certain "schools"), scientific or personal - can create a conflict.

10. Additional queries – Please state your consent to the publication of your contribution and privacy policy:

  • Consent to the privacy policy | Einwilligung der Datenschutzbestimmung
  • Consent to publish your abstract in the journal Clinical Neuroradiology | Einwilligung zur Veröffentlichung Ihres Abstracts in der Zeitschrift Clinical Neuroradiology

11. Last step is the summary – check the data thoroughly before finishing the submission. After releasing your abstract, you aren't able to make any changes. You can cancel the submission process at any time and continue later on - your data is saved. If all information are correct and you would like to finish the submission, please click on "Freigeben".

12. You will receive a confirmation mail. If you want to change something in your abstract or withdraw it, please contact Katharina Pracht (katharina.pracht@kukm.de).

This year, we have three different types of abstracts. In the following, you can find the details:

Scientific abstracts

At NeuroRAD 2021 you will have the opportunity to present your scientific projects in the form of a two-minute video podcast (Power Pitch). The most interesting, thematically appropriate power pitches will be integrated into the respective focus or special focus session of the congress. Other thematically organised, moderated scientific sessions also offer plenty of space for the presentation and discussion of your projects.

Your submitted abstracts will be evaluated by two independent reviewers. Based on these evaluations, your abstract will be accepted or rejected.

Prizes will be awarded for the best presentations in each topic area!

All accepted papers will be published in Clinical Neuroradiology in a citable form.

Scientific abstracts can be submitted on the following topics

  • New working worlds
  • Cerebral small vessel disease
  • Neuro-oncology
  • Neurodegeneration
  • Interventions
  • Vasospasm

Instructions for submitting an abstract

  • Deadline for abstract submission is 26 May 2021, 11:59 pm.
  • Please submit your scientific abstracts exclusively via our Online-Portal.
  • Your abstract can be submitted in German or English.
  • Your abstract must not exceed 2,200 characters (including spaces).
  • Please divide your scientific abstract into the sections Background, Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusion and use the format template in our Online-Portal.
  • Your scientific abstract can contain graphs and tables.
  • If accepted, your abstract will appear in an electronic supplement of the journal Clinical Neuroradiology in a citable format.
Interventional video-case abstracts

The interventional video case sessions offer you the opportunity to present an exciting and instructive neurointervention from your clinical routine to the audience.

Real neurointerventional procedures are to be shown in approx. 8-minute videos, which are characterised by an innovative procedure, the use of "new devices" or also by an instructive complication management. It is essential that the audience can experience the relevant steps of your intervention in the form of a video; pure slide presentations are not welcome in these sessions. Afterwards, two minutes per case are scheduled for discussion and questions.

Are you planning a complex case or the use of an innovative device and have the opportunity to capture it on video?

Then you are in the right place! Please apply with a short Interventional Video-Case Abstract for a contribution in one of the Interventional Video-Cases sessions!

We have piqued your interest, but you still have questions? For further information, please contact Dr. Johannes Gerber (Institute of Neuroradiology, University Hospital Dresden) by e-mail: johannes.gerber@uniklinikum-dresden.de

Diagnostic-cases abstracts

This year we are also planning, for the first time, a diagnostic cases session. In 5-minute presentations, instructive, complex or rare cases from diagnostic neuroradiology are to be presented.

It is important that good image material is available and that the case has a clear resolution, i.e. that the final diagnosis is as certain as possible and that there is a take-home message for the audience. Afterwards, there will be two minutes per case for discussion and questions.

Do you have a suitable, exciting diagnostic case?

Then please apply with a short Diagnostic Case Abstract to contribute to the Diagnostic Cases session!
