  • April 25 2022: Deadline for the submission of abstracts


In preparation for the International Conference on Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus, we are pleased to invite abstracts for regular oral and Give Me Five Minute presentations. We also welcome IF Members to submit abstracts to provide country updates. Please note, all sessions will be recorded and made available for conference attendees. It is assumed that presenters and authors give consent and authorize the recording of their presentation.

Call for abstracts is open now, see also the guidelines here.
Deadline for sending your abstracts is April 25th.

How are abstracts assessed for inclusion in the scientific program?

  • The abstract content should be explicitly linked to Spina Bifida and or Hydrocephalus;
  • The abstract content must be received on time and presented in the appropriate format, e.g., it must not exceed the word limit (details below);
  • In case research is presented, it must have followed the standards of ethics in research with human beings and/or animals that apply and have obtained the appropriate ethical approvals (if an empirical study);
  • Submissions of primary and secondary empirical research must include analyses and a summary of findings. It is not sufficient to state “the data will be analysed” or “findings will be presented/discussed”, unless it is an abstract for a “work in progress” presentation;
  • English language and grammar should be satisfactory, spelling should be consistent.
