Annual Meeting Abstracts
The NOF ISO18 annual meeting has served as the premier event for scientific and clinical exchange in the field of osteoporosis and bone health. This year we will review abstract submission from the osteoporosis/bone health community from all over the world. A limited number of abstracts will be accepted for oral and poster presentations through an extensive peer review process. The Plenary Scientific Session, will include the top abstracts as selected by the Program Committee, and is one of the annual meeting program highlights.
Abstract Review and Selection Process
After the submission deadline, all completed and eligible abstracts will be made available to the NOF Abstract Reviewers for blinded review and scoring, and final decisions will be made by the Program Committee in late January 2018.
Abstracts will be evaluated and scored solely on their scientific merits. Incomplete abstracts will not be reviewed. The same study must not be submitted as multiple abstracts. Abstracts that are simply different versions of a single study will be rejected. Abstracts will be peer reviewed according to the subject categories. Authors must indicate during online submission the appropriate review category (one only). Please use the list of abstract review categories. Read through all of the categories and select the category most closely associated with your abstract. All category selections will be final. There will be NO re-classification of abstracts after the abstract submission site has been closed. Abstracts submitted to the wrong category are scored in that category and usually fare poorly.
All abstracts submitted will be considered eligible for one presentation: either plenary, oral (simultaneous session), or poster.
The Plenary Session features the top abstracts. These are formal oral presentations, each followed by a brief discussion. An NOF member selected by the Program Committee will give a brief introduction to the abstract.
Oral (simultaneous) Sessions are formal oral presentations followed by a brief discussion.
Poster Sessions allow the viewing of a poster illustration of the abstract. Authors are expected to post and remove posters at designated times and to be at their posters to answer questions during the time designated for poster presentations. The author’s attendance during poster presentation time will be monitored.
Notification regarding acceptance or rejection of abstracts will be sent to the presenting author in January 2018 by email; consequently, an accurate email address is critical. If your abstract is accepted, the email will specify whether it is accepted as plenary, oral, or poster presentation or whether it has been selected to be published online only. If you have not received an email notification by February 2, 2018, contact Catrell Harris at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rejection notifications will also be sent at that time.
The decision of the NOF Program Committee regarding acceptance and presentation of abstracts is final.
