Call for Abstracts


The World Congress on Thyroid Cancer is currently calling for abstract submissions for WCTC 2023. Take this opportunity to educate the worldwide thyroid community about your significant work.

PRESENTATION FORMATS

Abstracts can be submitted for presentation in one of the following formats:

  • Oral
  • Poster
  • Video 


1. ORAL PRESENTATION

Because of the severe time constraints of the Congress, only a small number of selected Oral Presentation slots will be available. Presenting authors will be informed and offered an alternative presentation category (e.g. poster) if their abstract is not selected for oral presentation. All oral presentations will have a scheduled day and time, which will be shared with the presenting authors once the program has been finalized. Oral presentations will consist of an 8-minute presentation with 6 minutes discussion between every 3 presentations.

Oral presentation submission guidelines
Upon confirmation of oral presentation by the corresponding author(s), a PowerPoint template, a link and upload instructions will be provided.



2. ePOSTER PRESENTATION (electronic posters)

There will be several ePoster viewing sessions throughout the duration of the Congress. Each poster will have a specified time during which the judges will review the presentation. Please be sure that the presenting author is present at the poster for the judging process during these times. Be prepared to provide a 5-minute oral summary of your poster, followed by a 3-minute review and discussion.


ePoster submission guidelines
Upon confirmation of ePoster presentation by the corresponding author(s), the ePoster template, link and upload instructions will be provided.



3. VIDEO PRESENTATION

Presentations of videos will be followed by a short discussion. The film duration should not exceed 7 minutes. This will be followed by 5 minutes of facilitated discussion. The author should be present to narrate (in clear English).


Video submission guidelines
Video Submission – Submit an abstract up to 250 words describing or outlining the video. There is an option but not a requirement to submit a clip/preview of the video with your abstract submission (up to 50MB in WMV format).  Upon acceptance of your abstract, you will be provided with a link to upload your video. Video files can be up to 2GB (high-definition quality) and in any format.
Video Length – Prepare your presentation to fit within the allowed time frame of 7 minutes for video presentations before a panel of experts, which will be followed by a 5-minute review and discussion. It is important to keep to the allotted time – for logistical reasons, as well as out of respect for co-presenters. Timekeeping will be strict.
