Submission Guidelines

When submitting a late breaking abstract for the 2019 International Hearing Loss Conference, please refer to the Abstract Submission Guidelines below.

  • Enter your contact name, affiliation/institution name and email address (please note authors may specify only one affiliation)
  • Enter all corresponding authors in the order they should appear in the program
  • Prepare an abstract title (max 225 character limit)
  • Prepare the abstract (max 2700 character limit)
  • Select a theme that most closely aligns with your submission
  • By submitting an abstract, you agree to present at the International Hearing Loss Conference, should your abstract be selected for the program
  • Abstracts should not report findings that will be published elsewhere prior to the meeting, although presentation of the work at a recent meeting (e.g., within a year) of another society is acceptable.
  • The abstract should state the study’s objective, briefly describe the methods used, summarize the results obtained, and state the conclusions. Ideally, these sections will be indicated explicitly. It is not satisfactory to say, “The results will be discussed.” Abstracts should emphasize the significance of results and general principles rather than describe common methods and procedures.
  • Use standard abbreviations for units of measure. Other abbreviations should be fully spelled out on first mention, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses.
  • Abstracts should be submitted in plain text and they will be formatted for the program.
