Guidelines for Abstracts


Abstracts are accepted exclusively through your personal mySHVM2015 page; you will need to register to have access to the latter. Registration does not require an immediate payment but all submitted abstracts will be discarded if payment is not received by 1 August 2015.

Submission deadline to be considered for oral presentation is 10 July 2015. The Scientific Committee will then review the received abstracts for inclusion in the scientific programme in one of the following formats:

  • Oral Abstract Sessions
    Selected abstracts will be presented during specific symposia as deemed appropriate by the organising committee.
  • Poster Abstract Session
    Posters will be displayed throughout the meeting, with ample opportunity for presentation and discussion.

The organising committee will communicate to the authors via e-mail by 20 July 2015 whether their abstract will be an oral or poster presentation.

Early Investigator Commendation

The Early Investigator Commendation (EIC) highlights the scientific accomplishments of promising young researchers and is a major focus of the Annual Congress of the Society for Heart and Vascular Metabolism. There will be four finalists, and for each the registration fee (including accommodation costs) will be waived. The finalists will present their work in a special section of the plenary sessions.

Entrants for the EIC competition should be either students or postdoctoral fellows (postdocs or clinical fellows with over 6 years experience are not eligible for the competition).

Admission to the EIC competition is by submission of an abstract and a curriculum vitae by the abstract deadline. In the event that an entrant is not selected as an EIC finalist, the abstract will still be considered for presentation as a regular communication at the meeting and for publication as part of the meeting proceedings.

A more detailed document regarding the EIC can be obtained through this link.

The EIC application deadline is 10 July 2015, and notification of commendations will be given by 20 July 2015.


English is the official language for the meeting.
