How are Abstracts Selected?
Abstracts are reviewed and shortlisted by members  BIHS who will assess whether the proposed paper fits the scope of the conference.

General Information

ABSTRACTS SHOULD DESCRIBE WORK UNDERTAKEN WHICH IS OF A SCIENTIFIC OR CLINICAL NATURE.  ABSTRACTS OF A COMMERCIAL NATURE WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED.

•    Abstracts will be considered for oral or poster presentation, and authors should indicate their presentation preference (Oral, Poster or Either).  Abstracts which receive the highest grades from the referees will be selected for oral presentation.

•    Abstracts selected for presentation to the Society will be published in the Journal of Human Hypertension (authors who do NOT want their abstract published in JHH are asked to tick the relevant box on the on-line abstract submission system – abstracts not being published in JHH will also not appear in the abstract booklet available at the time of the meeting).

•    Authors will be asked to complete a Conflict of Interest Declaration on the submission website. Please only declare commercial conflict of interests, not funding from recognised grant-awarding bodies.

•    Each abstract will be refereed blind by five reviewers.

•    Ten minutes (plus five minutes discussion) will be allocated to each Oral Presentation.

•    Authors will be notified of the outcome of the abstract submission on the 9th June.  Authors of accepted abstracts will be sent a copy of their abstract to confirm it has been reproduced correctly from the on-line submission before it is sent to the journal.  There will be a certain number of bursaries available for presenters of Young Investigator oral abstracts to attend the meeting, further details to follow.

Next Steps
You will be notified if your abstract has been accepted or rejected by Friday 9th of June. All presenters who are accepted must register to attend the meeting. The early registration deadline is on Monday 19th of June.
