Abstract

A submission system for abstracts will soon be available.

Categories for abstracts:

  • Paper presentation; scientific paper or case study (15 minutes; may be adjusted dependent on number of proposals)
  • Workshop (60 minutes)
  • Poster presentation

Scientific papers (250 words)

Scientific paper presentations should be original research studies. The abstract should include at least results. A promise to present results at the conference is NOT sufficient.

Provide the following information in the form of a structured abstract, using these headings:

  • Objective: briefly indicate the primary purpose of or major question addressed in the study.
  • Method: indicate the sources of data, give brief overview of methodology. This section should briefly note study design, how participants were selected, and major study measures.
  • Results: summarize the key findings.
  • Discussion: indicate main clinical, theoretical, or research applications/implications.

Case studies (250 words)

Case studies should focus on rare phenomena, specifically difficult to treat case, or novel approaches.

Provide the following information in the form of a structured abstract, using these headings:

  • Objective: briefly indicate the primary purpose of or major question addressed in the study.
  • Case description: describe the case and/or the phenomenon in sufficient detail.
  • Treatment approach: describe the provided treatment.
  • Discussion: indicate main clinical, theoretical, or research applications/implications.

Abstracts for clinical and thematic workshops (250 words)

Provide the following information in the form of a structured abstract, using these headings:

  • Objective: briefly indicate the primary purpose of the workshop and what the participants are expected to learn from the workshop.
  • Description: Describe the overall content of the workshop, the theoretical framework, teaching methods, and if relevant instructions for preparation. Workshops should include some interactive elements.
  • Additional information for workshops (250 words):
  • Speakers: State briefly the professional background and relevant experience of the speakers

Posters (250 words)

Posters can be original research studies or review studies. The abstract should preferably include results, but also ongoing projects can be accepted.

Provide the following information in the form of a structured abstract, using these headings:

  • Objective: briefly indicate the primary purpose of or major question addressed in the study.
  • Method: indicate the sources of data, give brief overview of methodology. This section should briefly note study design, how participants were selected, and major study measures.
  • Results: summarize the key findings.
  • Discussion: indicate main clinical, theoretical, or research applications/implications.

General information:

All abstracts will be rated on overall quality, novelty, and clinical relevance.
A multidisciplinary scientific committee, consisting of the members of the NEDS board as well as national representatives from both clinical and research background, is formed well in advance of the conference. The committee should include representation from all Nordic countries. Conflicts of interest will be dealt with as necessary.
