Every conference thrives on the contribution of the scientists who present their scientific studies and results and on the encouragement of young scientists which is a core task of our society. Therefor we want to focus more again on the scientific contributions in this year’s conference. We will on one hand revert back to our well-tried guided poster walks, which will be ordered thematically, but will also introduce a new format of abstract presentations. Outstanding abstracts will be awarded as Power-Pitch presentations.
We want to encourage you to enrich the program of the joint conference of the German and Austrian Societies of Neuroradiology with you taking an active part in the program.

Deadline for submissions

The submission system will be open from March 15 to June 11, 2019 - 11:59 p.m.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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. 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".
