Annual Meeting Abstract Submission

SBUR 2023 Abstract Guidelines

The submission of an abstract affirms that all authors named in the abstract have agreed to its submission for presentation at the SBUR 2023 Annual Meeting in San Antonio, TX  and will be published in the American Journal of Clinical and Experimental Urology (AJCEU) exactly as submitted. All eligible abstracts will be considered for Trainee Travel Awards and Eula and Donald S Coffey Innovative Research Award Short Talks must be submitted by Friday, August 4, 2023.

Edits will not be accepted when the portal has locked on August 31, 2023. It is the responsibility of the submitting author to ensure the abstract is in perfect order with no errors in spelling or grammar, as revisions will not be accepted. Abstracts will not be corrected.

At the time of submission of the abstract, the data on which the abstract is based should not be published, either in print or online. Abstracts must be original work that has not been previously published. Do not use footnotes or references. Trial-in-Progress Abstracts are acceptable. The abstract text must not identify either the authors or institutions from which the work originated.

Accepted abstracts may be captured and such audiovisual material will be used as deemed appropriate. To submit your abstract, you will be required to complete a non-exclusive license agreement.

Submission of an abstract constitutes the author’s commitment to attend the meeting and to present the abstract as accepted. Expenses associated with the preparation, submission, and presentation of an abstract are the responsibility of the author/presenter.

Authors may submit a total of two (2) abstracts. In the event that two abstracts from one author are accepted, SBUR will make every effort to assign the presentation of the two abstracts in different poster sessions. Authors must understand that depending on categories this may not be possible, and in this event (a) the author must explicitly list the name of a co-author who will present, or (b) the second poster may not be able to be presented.

Abstracts must be written in English and, if accepted, presented in English.

Submitted abstracts are graded individually by peer reviewers based on scientific merit and originality. The SBUR Program Committee has determined that 7 abstracts will be presented in during the Annual Meeting.
