Abstract Presentation types
As well as dedicated oral commuincations sessions, there will also be options to present during the symposia. Orals will generally be 10 minutes (7 for the presentation and 3 for discussion).
Posters will be on boards for the entire meeting. There will be dedicated sessions during each day when presenters will be asked to be at their boards to discuss their data with other delegates.
For detailed guidelines about submitting your abstract please click HERE. These are also included in the online submission form.
Abstract Review process
Abstracts containing no data are unlikely to be accepted. You must include results in your abstract unless you are describing a clinical case.
ICCBH 2024 abstracts are marked under blind conditions by a review panel on the basis of originality, scientific merit and significance. Reviewers do not score abstracts when there is a potential or actual conflict of interest. Submitted abstracts are primarily selected for oral/poster presentation on the basis of the scores achieved during the review process. The Organisers reserve the right to make minimal adjustments to the final programme in order to maintain a breadth and balance of interests in the programme.
Abstracts will be published in JBMR® Plus (Journal of Bone and Mineral Research Plus).
JBMR® Plus is the premier open access journal of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR). A companion to internationally recognized title Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, JBMR® Plus aims to improve global musculoskeletal health by publishing innovative research covering endocrinology, geriatrics, orthopedics and rheumatology.
Challenge the Expert Cases
Back by Popular Demand for Salzburg 2024!
The Challenge the Expert Session is designed to bring forward challenging cases in the diagnosis and management of children with bone disorders. The cases should be ones that bring to light key “diagnostic clues” and/or points of “management equipoise” that allow the expert to discuss the nuances of patient care that are not easily gleaned from published articles and textbooks.
ICCBH Attendees are invited to submit cases by email to the POC via the Events Team firstname.lastname@example.org. These should be prepared as powerpoint slides with the following format as a guide:
History of presenting illness
Relevant medication, past, family and social histories
Positive issues identified on review of systems
Investigations (as visual as possible, ideally tables with abnormal labs highlighted in red and arrows for directionality, and relevant images [DXA/MRI/CT/bone scans/ultrasounds etc)]*
*The quality of the graphics and images, along with the extent to which a given case will generate discussion, will be used to adjudicate the suitability of cases for this session.
For a given submitted case, the diagnosis and management may not yet be worked out; in other cases, the diagnosis and management may have taken place, but there may be points of equipoise or uncertainty about the current or future management that will generate discussion.
The case can be one that has been accepted to the main meeting as a poster presentation. For any new cases submitted that are not poster presentations, any cases that are NOT selected for the Challenge the Expert Session can be presented as poster presentations if the candidate chooses.
The Expert has 30 minutes to discuss the case, during which time he/she may invite colleagues to also contribute to a certain aspect of the case (eg physiotherapist, geneticist, radiologist). The individual who has submitted the case will also need to be present at the meeting to make comments upon invitation by the Expert. The Expert is asked to discuss the case in a way that is engaging and interactive, including interaction with the case submitter. Two different Experts will discuss two different cases.
Author notifications will be sent following review by the organisers. In case you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the ICCBH conference team at email@example.com.
