IPEG & ESPES 2020 CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
You are invited to submit abstracts to IPEG’s 29th Annual Congress for Endosurgery in Children in conjunction with the ESPES 10th Annual Congress for the European Society of Paediatric Endoscopic Surgeons taking place as part of the 1st Joint Congress of EUPSA & IPEG with ESPES, being held June 10-13, 2020, in Vienna, Austria. This is a multi-discipline pediatric endosurgery congress, and abstracts of all pediatric endoscopic specialities are welcome. The official language of the congress is English.
Authors may choose from the following categories:
- Basic Science
- Simulation-Based Education
- Single Site and/or NOTES
The Program Committee reserves the right to allocate the category of each accepted abstract in the final scientific program.
All abstract submissions MUST be submitted online. Authors may indicate their preference for presentation format on the submission form; the Program Committee will consider your preference. However, the final decision will rest with the Program Committee. Videos should focus on new aspects concerning operations, techniques and tricks. Submitted videos are for review only and will not be returned to the author. If your video is accepted for presentation, you will be required to bring a final copy of your video with you to the meeting and you may be asked to edit your video to fit a shorter presentation time limit. Video authors are encouraged to submit their videos to Videoscopy (http://www.videoscopy.com), the official video journal of IPEG. All Abstracts must be submitted in English.
Although this is a Joint Congress with EUPSA, IPEG and ESPES, abstracts may not be submitted to both the IPEG/ESPES Congress as well as the EUPSA Congress. You must either submit your abstract to the IPEG & ESPES Congress or submit your abstract to the EUPSA Congress.
We encourage everyone to submit an abstract, whether or not you are a member of IPEG or ESPES.
Important Notice: The following Abstract Submission Policies will be firmly enforced:
- No Previously Published Submissions: The abstract submitted must present original work that has not and will not be published prior to the 2020 Joint IPEG & ESPES Meeting. Abstracts should only be submitted if they or their main content will not have been previously accepted for publication or will not have been previously published (paper or electronic).
- Previously Presented Submissions: The abstract submitted should not be presented at a national or international meeting prior to the commencement of the Joint IPEG & ESPES Meeting. Presentation at one of the following means that abstracts should not be submitted: BAPS, AAP, APSA, EUPSA, CAPS, PAPS, ISPR, AAPS, SAGES, WOFAPS. If the abstract has been presented at a meeting other than those listed (e.g. a meeting of another specialty), this MUST be declared during the abstract submission process so that the committee can make a decision.
- Previously Presented Data: All abstracts must be new and original content OR include at least 50% new data if previously presented at a meeting.
- No reference to the authors or the institution should appear within the body of the abstract or in the abstract title.
- There is no limit to the number of abstracts you may submit, but you may not submit a video abstract and a written abstract on the same study/data set. You must select either a written abstract submission or a video abstract submission.
- ETHICAL: It is expected that the results section of the abstract represents original data by the authors, or a clearly stated systematic review/meta-analysis of the literature. IPEG & ESPES considers plagiarism to be a serious breach of professional standards and authors found to have plagiarized the work of others can expect a ban and a report to their employing organization.
- The word limit for written abstract submissions is 500-words.
- A maximum of one (1) Image may be included in the written abstract. Images must be no larger than 1MB in file size, and the width of the image may be no larger than 900 pixels wide.
- Tables may be included in the abstract submission but will go against the abstract’s 500-word limit.
- Videos may not be submitted with a written abstract
- The Maximum length for submitted videos is Five (5) Minutes. IPEG & ESPES is not accepting 3D Video submissions. If your video is accepted for presentation at the 2020 Joint IPEG & ESPES Meeting, you will be required to bring a final copy of your video with you to the meeting.
- If your video is accepted for presentation at the 2020 Joint IPEG & ESPES Meeting, you may be asked to edit your video to fit a shorter presentation time limit.
- A short (150-word maximum) written description of your video should be included when submitting your video abstract. Images and tables should not be included when submitting a video abstract.

IPEG Policy on Employees of Commercial Interests
The ACCME states that an employee of a commercial interest may not serve as a planner or speaker for an accredited CME activity when the topic to be discussed is relevant to the products or services of the company. Therefore, IPEG’s CME Committee declares that no employees of a commercial interest may present in IPEG & ESPES CME accredited activities when the topic is relevant. This policy is applicable to invited faculty, abstract presenters, video presenters and quickshot presenters. Faculty/speakers who serve on a commercial interest’s Board and who receive a salary will be considered an employee.
Visit http://www.accme.org/requirements/accreditation-requirements-cme-providers/policies-and-definitions/definition-commercial-interest/ for full definition and a list of all exceptions.
The IPEG CME Committee will determine if the topic to be discussed is relevant to the products or services of the company. Exceptions to the “no employee” policy may be granted by the IPEG CME Committee as long as the exception is in compliance with the ACCME’s policy.
