Abstract mentorship programme 

IFOMPT 2024 has a mentoring programme in place for those with limited or no experience of submitting an abstract for a scientific conference. The goal of the mentorship programme is to help the author present their material clearly and concisely prior to submitting the abstract to the formal abstract review process.

As abstracts must be submitted in English the programme may be particularly helpful for those whose first language is not English or who are not used to the structure of the abstract format. Interested participants should prepare their abstract according to the submission guidelines and send it to mentoring@ifompt.org  starting May 1, 2023.

One round of feedback will be provided, with advice on ways that the clarity of expression could be enhanced, in time to make changes and submit before the deadline. It is the author’s responsibility to submit their final abstract via the conference website following the appropriate guidelines until August 31, 2023.

It is important to note that the mentoring process is entirely separate from the formal abstract submission and review process. Requesting mentoring assistance and gaining feedback from that process does not guarantee that an abstract will be accepted for presentation.

The mentorship process will run from May 1 to July 31, 2023  in order to give the author time to amend their abstract and submit by the deadline (August 31, 2023).
