All participants are invited to submit abstracts on one of the topics listed below for presentation at the 7th C1-Inhibitor Deficiency Workshop.

Deadline for abstract submission: 1 March 2010

Abstracts may only be submitted via internet at this website. Late abstracts will not be considered.

In order to standardise the abstract layout we ask you to read the preparation guidelines CAREFULLY!

Guidelines for preparation and submission of abstracts:

  • The background and goals of the study should appear clearly to the reader. The methods and results must contain data, and the conclusions must be clearly expressed.
  • Tables, charts or other graphics may not be included and will be deleted by the editors.
  • Avoid complex mathematical formulae. For the symbols ≤ or ≥ type instead <= or >=. For superscript use caret (^) e.g. 10^6 instead of 106. Do not use Greek letters and symbols. Instead of ‘IFN-γ’ use for example ‘IFN-g’ or ‘IFN-gamma’.
  • All abbreviations must be defined the first time they appear in your text (but, do not define in the title). Example: hereditary angioedema (HAE), before being used as an abbreviation only.
