Abstract Submission Process

Have you conducted any research on COVID-19? We have added a special abstract topic on “COVID, pancreas and islet transplantation and diabetes”. Top-rated abstracts will be presented during the pre-congress COVID-19 workshop

Abstract Structure

Abstracts must be comprised of four distinct sections:

  1. Introduction: Describes previous research and the rationale for the current study
  2. Method: Describes how the study was conducted
  3. Results: Describes the results of the study
  4. Discussion/Conclusion: Summarize the study and discusses its implications
