Terms & Conditions

The submission of an abstract affirms that all authors named in the abstract have agreed to its submission for presentation at the virtual SBUR 2020 Annual Meeting and will be published in the American Journal of Clinical and Experimental Urology (AJCEU) exactly as submitted. Edits will not be accepted when the portal has locked on September 4th. It is the responsibility of the submitting author to ensure the abstract is in perfect order with no errors in spelling or grammar, as revisions will not be accepted.

Submission of an abstract constitutes the author's commitment to attend the meeting and to present the abstract as accepted. Expenses associated with the preparation, submission, and presentation of an abstract are the responsibility of the author/presenter.

Authors may submit a total of two (2) abstracts. In the event that two abstracts from one author are accepted, SBUR will make every effort to assign the presentation of the two abstracts in different poster sessions. Authors must understand that depending on categories this may not be possible, and in this event (a) the author must explicitly list the name of a co-author who will present, or (b) the second poster may not be able to be presented.

Abstracts must be written in English and, if accepted, presented in English.
