Abstract Submissions are now closed

We are inviting senior and trainee clinicians working in the vascular and endovascular field to submit abstracts to be considered for oral presentations or as electronic posters in the CX Abstract Sessions at the Charing Cross Symposium – Consensus Update taking place at Olympia Grand, London on 21-24 April 2020.

Guidelines for submitting your abstract:

  • Abstracts should be original and of a clinical or research nature. In general, only previously unpublished material will be considered.
  • Accepted abstracts will be published in the CX 2020 Abstract Book.

  • Format of abstract:

– Abstract title should avoid abbreviations and be under 300 characters.

– Graphics, tables and images can be included in the abstract as high resolution images (300 dpi/1 MB).
– The abstract must be structured to include the following four sections:

  • Editing of abstracts after submission deadline is not possible. Once an abstract has been accepted and the submitting author notified, corrections may be made to typographical errors and incorrect graphics only.
