Abstract submission
Presenters will be notified about the Scientific Committee’s decision (acceptance or rejection) in writing by email.
The Scientific Committee’s decision is final regarding:
• Whether an abstract has been accepted or rejected.
• The mode of presentation offered.
• The date and time of the presentation offered.
Registration for the conference is a requirement for ALL presenters and a pre-requisite to an abstract being reproduced within the conference programme.

Criteria for abstract selection
1. Abstracts are to be submitted by Abstract Submission Form to Symposium Secretariat. The form can be downloaded from the official website of International Colorectal Disease Symposium 2019 (www.icds-hk.org).
2. Authors can submit more than one paper.
3. Material presented in abstracts must be concise and coherent, with the focus on the abstract stated clearly.
4. The authors must make explicit what they intend to present.
5. Relevant contextual information must be given.
6. All abstracts must be written in English. Upon submission, authors will receive a confirmation by email. Otherwise, please contact the Symposium Secretariat. It is therefore incumbent upon the author to ensure that the spelling, grammar, and syntax are of an academic publishing standard.
7. Abstracts for posters and concurrent presentations up to three references may be cited and these must be provided using the Harvard referencing system.
8. The Organizing Committee reserves the right to select and assign the abstracts relevant to the sessions for oral or poster presentation. All presenting authors of the abstracts (either oral or poster) are required to register and pay for the registration fee by the deadline. Failure to do so will result in exclusion from the final programme.
9. All accepted abstracts would be published in the final programme of the Symposium only upon receipt of registration fees in full.
