How are Abstracts Selected?
Abstracts are reviewed and shortlisted by BIHS members who will assess whether the proposed paper fits the scope of the conference.

General Information

  • Abstracts will be considered for oral or poster presentation, and authors should indicate their presentation preference (Oral, Poster or Either). Abstracts which receive the highest grades from the referees will be selected for oral presentation.
  • Abstracts selected for presentation to the Society will be published in the Journal of Human Hypertension (authors who do NOT want their abstract published in JHH are asked to tick the relevant box on the on-line abstract submission system – abstracts not being published in JHH will also not appear in the online abstract publication).
  • Authors MUST follow the abstract requirements as set according to the JHH publication guidelines – Please click here to download the guidelines.
  • Authors will be asked to complete a Conflict of Interest Declaration on the submission website. Please only declare commercial conflict of interests, not funding from recognised grant-awarding bodies.
  • Each abstract will be refereed blind by five reviewers.
  • Ten minutes (plus five minutes discussion) will be allocated to each Oral Presentation.
  • It is our intention to hold this meeting face to face, but may revert to a virtual format if necessary.
