Submission Guidelines

Abstract Submission Now Closed

Early career and first time prize nominations

Poster presenters who are eligible for the young presenter and/or first time presenter awards will have a label on the Poster/E-Poster accordingly. Applicants should be in training and not yet in a definite established position. The maximum age for applicants is 40 years old, indicated during abstract submission.

Encore/previously presented abstracts

WMS does not have a strict policy around encore/previously presented abstracts. In general presentations will be judged according to novelty and interest for the members of the society.

The Journal does not transfer copyright for standalone Abstracts (not a part of the article). They have a non-exclusive license to publish those Abstracts. So, the Author may present/submit their abstract at other conferences.

Personal Page

When the abstract is submitted the author can follow the progress online by entering his/her Personal Page for abstracts. The Personal Page for abstracts makes it possible for the author to make changes until the submission deadline.

PLEASE read and check the abstract before submission

The author will be able to access the Personal Page for abstracts by entering the personal user ID and password indicated in the file attached to the confirmation email after submission before the abstract submission deadline. After this date it is not possible to access the Personal Page.


The full programme with accepted abstract titles will be available on the congress website in June. The late breaking abstracts will be added to the programme in September.

E-Posters will be available to view on the virtual platform and congress app from the congress opening on 11th October 2022.

A digital abstract journal will be available to all congress registered delegates from TBC. A link will be sent by email. The abstracts will also be available for WMS members and subscribers to the journal, via the journal, after the congress.
