Is there a limit to the number of authors per abstract?
We do not have a limit of authors per abstract as long as accepted criteria for authorship are fulfilled. We would not recommend more than 30 persons, due to the readability of the abstract. Study groups can also be added separately, please use therefore the field: Abstract third-party references.

Submission of your abstract to other conferences does not preclude you from submitting it for ECCVID.

Can I add figures or additional text from what was in my originally submitted abstract?
You are able to update your abstract as long as it is a draft and before the submission deadline. Please contact us if you need to amend a submitted abstract.
