The ES Summit Scientific Program Committee will review all abstracts. Authors were required to select one category under which their abstract should be reviewed.
The Committee shall be directed to reject abstracts for the following causes:
- Plagiarism detected
- Subject not related to the field of Movement Disorders
- Does not meet basic submission requirements
Changes after abstract has been submitted are strongly discouraged! If critical changes need to be made to your abstract content after it has been submitted, please request those changes by email to email@example.com.
Changes to your submitted abstract will not be accepted after January 31, 2020.
If an abstract must be withdrawn for any reason, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Withdrawals must be received in writing by February 3, 2020. There is no penalty to withdraw your abstract, however if your withdrawal request is received after the abstracts have been sent for publication, it cannot be withdrawn and will remain a part of the 2020 MDS published abstracts. All submitted abstracts become the property of MDS.
Abstracts accepted for presentation will be published in an electronic supplement to the Movement Disorders Clinical Practice Journal, online edition.
MDS expects that all abstracts selected for presentation will be presented by the original author(s) and that no submitted abstracts will be withdrawn. Please do not submit an abstract if you are not prepared to travel to the meeting and present it in the session selected by MDS.
Attendance is required. Accepted abstracts must have a presenter in attendance at the ES Summit in Venice, Italy to present their poster(s), and should plan to attend from March 18-20, 2020 as poster presentation dates are subject to change. It is not mandatory that the first author be pre-registered and present; the presenter may be any of the contributing authors, or a colleague.
MDS only accepts original work. By submitting your abstract, you affirm that your abstract is your own, either individually or of the group. Should plagiarism be detected, the abstract will be rejected.
