Call for Abstracts
Guidelines for abstracts submission
Abstracts are invited for inclusion in the programme as either oral presentation, electronic poster or video presentation or video poster.
Abstracts are invited to be submitted via the online submission form.
You must register in the submission system before submitting your abstract.
The following information is required for each abstract:
- Primary author’s name, position, organisation, full contact address, telephone and email address. This information will be used for all further communications.
- Names and organisations of co-authors.
- The presentation preference of video, oral or poster presentation or either.

Gold, Silver and Bronze awards will be made for
Best Oral, Best electronic Poster and Best Video presentation
‘Karl Storz is proud to once again offer ‘The Golden Telescope’ Award to the winner of the ‘Best Video’ presentation. In addition they will receive free entry to a course of their choosing, within Europe, at any Karl Storz supported centre.’
Please note all accepted poster abstracts will be presented as e-posters at the BSGE ASM 2018.
If your abstract cannot be accepted for an oral or video presentation, it will automatically be considered for an e- poster presentation. BSGE Scientific Committee reserves the right to decide on the final method of presentation. Authors must declare conflict of interest. The details submitted within the abstract submission system for the primary author will automatically appear in the programme and abstract book produced. If an abstract is accepted for presentation, at least one author must pay the registration fee to attend the ASM for both days. The presenting author MUST register for the meeting at least two weeks before the meeting otherwise the abstract will not be published. Please note that if the author does not register, the abstract will be withdrawn.
Any video that has won a prize in a previous BSGE video competition cannot be entered as a video presentation at the ASM. This could result in the author receiving two prizes for the same video publication, which the BSGE council considered inappropriate.
Please note those who have submitted a video abstract must email BSGE Secretariat [email protected] to confirm they have submitted their abstract for video presentation. BSGE Secretariat will send them a link with instructions to upload their videos on BSGE Video Library. This needs to be edited high quality video clips of maximum 8 minutes duration allowing at least 2 minutes afterwards for questions and discussion. Only videos uploaded to our servers will be considered. Abstracts must have been submitted by 5 pm on 2nd March 2018 but videos can be uploaded until 30th March 2018.
