Abstract submission

General guidelines

Participants are allowed to submit an abstract for a single presentation (either oral or poster). This does not preclude the opportunity to be a co-author (a non-presenting author) for other abstracts.

Upon abstract submission, authors will specify whether they apply for an oral or a poster presentation. Abstracts not accepted for oral presentation may be offered the opportunity to be presented as a poster.

The abstracts submitted must be original and should fall within the general topic of neurotechnologies and tailored approaches to understand and improve stroke recovery.

The abstract template must be used for any submission.

The person who submits the abstract must also be the one presenting it, though they do not necessarily need to be the first author. Please ensure the correct information for the submitting author’s name and email address is provided, as these will be used for all communication regarding the abstract.

Authors will receive an immediate email confirmation upon abstract submission. If you don’t receive confirmation within 24 hours, please check your spam folder. If there’s still no confirmation, please contact uphummel-conference@epfl.ch.

Please make sure to fill out the registration form in addition to your abstract submission.

Abstracts must be structured within 400 words, following the template format:
