In addition, no reference to participating institutes or clinics may be made in the abstract text either, as the evaluation is anonymous.

Graphics and tables will be printed in black and white in the abstract volume. The graphics will automatically be placed below the abstract text if there is no explicit note on graphics in the text.

3. The main authors will be informed about the acceptance via e-mail, in addition information will be given about the defined presentation form (oral or poster) and the time of the oral or poster presentation.
