Here are the five steps within the abstract submission process:
    • Step 1: Authors
    • Step 2: Abstract Body
    • Step 3: Information

  5. Those questions marked with a red asterisk* are required fields. The system will indicate which of the steps you have not completed when you go to finalize and submit your abstract.
  6. Once an abstract has been submitted, you can click on the Edit icon to edit an existing submission. If you wish to withdraw an abstract, click the Withdraw icon to withdraw a submission and have it moved to the Inactive tab.
  7. Only one abstract may be submitted at a time. You are limited to 1 incomplete submission at a time, so if you have an existing submission that you are currently working on, you will need to complete that submission before beginning a new one. To submit additional abstracts, select ‘My Submissions’ in the upper left hand corner of the screen, select the icon ‘Abstract Submission’ and then ‘Create New’.


Preparation of Your Abstract


  • No identifying features such as names of hospitals, medical schools, clinics or cities may be listed in the title or text of the abstract. Do not include the names of any of the authors. The names of authors and their affiliations (institutions) will be submitted on-line during the process.
  • Abstracts previously presented at a national/international meeting may be submitted to SVIN. Please cite the meeting, location, and date of previous presentation. Abstracts that have previously been published as manuscripts within one year of the annual meeting (published after November 2021) may be considered for presentation but will not be eligible for publication in the S:VIN journal. Abstracts that were already published as manuscripts prior to November, 2021 cannot be submitted.
  • The title cannot be longer than 15 words but should indicate clearly the nature of the study. Capitalize the first letter of each word within the title.
  • Abstracts should state briefly and clearly the purpose, methods, results and conclusions of the work. There is a strict 500-word limit (title and references not included).
    • Introduction: Clearly state the purpose of the study.
    • Methods: Describe the design of the study clearly.
    • Results: Present your results in a logical sequence.

SVIN Abstract Withdrawal Policy

It is SVIN’s expectation that all accepted abstracts will, under all usual circumstances, be presented at the meeting. If the presenting author is unable to present an abstract, a co-author is eligible to present on their behalf. Failure to present an accepted abstract may cause the author(s) to be ineligible for abstract submission at next year’s annual meeting.

To request withdraw of an abstract prior to the submission deadline, please withdraw directly in the system. Following the submission deadline, all withdrawal requests must be requested in writing to the SVIN Speaker Team at education@svin.org. The final date to request a withdrawal will be October 28, 2022.
