The standard and late breaking abstract deadlines have now closed.

For information on the abstract submissions, notifications and acceptances please click here.


  • All accepted abstracts will be published in BoneKEy.
  • All accepted abstracts will be published online through the main congress website.
  • Abstracts will be published exactly as submitted. Errors will not be amended by the organisers.
  • Instructions for oral presentation and poster preparation will be e-mailed to authors prior to the congress and will be available on the congress website.


  • Submission of an abstract implies that it has been approved by all listed authors and transfer of copyright to the ECTS becomes effective when the abstract has been accepted for presentation.
  • BoneKEy copyright terms can be viewed here.

What is my commitment?

  • Submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author(s) to present the abstract as accepted.
  • Expenses associated with the preparation, submission and presentation of an abstract are the responsibility of the presenter(s)/author(s).
  • No shows will be logged by the organisers. An author failing to present accepted material at two or more congresses will be asked to register in order for their abstract to be considered for acceptance by the scientific committee. If no registration is received their abstract(s) will be withdrawn prior to publication.


If you have any queries about the submission process or you wish to withdraw an abstract please contact the conference secretariat

Please note that abstracts may not be withdrawn after 28 February 2015, unless an acceptable explanation is received by the organisers. An example of an acceptable explanation would be the inability to reproduce the data described in the abstract.
