PVRI2021 Abstract submissions

The PVRI is delighted to announce that we are now accepting abstract submissions for our digital programme, PVRI2021.


Abstract guidelines

  • Abstract submission should be emailed, as a Word document (or pdf), Arial font 11, with no more than 300 words (abstract title, authors and institutions are not to be considered in calculating the wordage), to: admin@pvrinstitute.org.
  • A 3 minute (maximum), 3 slide (maximum) presentation should accompany your submission, describing your work. This should be recorded using Microsoft Powerpoint's presentation recording tool. Details for this can be found here.
  • All correspondence relating to abstracts will be undertaken by email with the first named author / registered presenter, so it is their responsibility to communicate any relevant information regarding the submitted abstract and the congress to the other authors.
  • All accepted abstracts will be displayed in a secure online forum that allows authors to receive comments and post answers. Poster moderators will stimulate active online discussion to ensure all abstracts receive interest and feedback.
  • As in previous years, the best abstracts will be featured in live webinar presentations and we are still allocating up to 15 grants for the best submissions.
  • The accuracy of the submitted abstract is the responsibility of the authors, so authors should prepare and proofread their abstracts carefully before submitting to ensure it is the final version.
  • There is no fee for abstract submission but you must have an active PVRI membership.


  • 1 September 2020 // Abstract submissions open
  • 30 November 2020 // Abstract submissions close at 23:59
  • 11 December 2020 // Successful abstracts will be notified.

The 15 best abstracts will receive a Travel Grant of USD500, which will help with travel to our next in-person meeting. We are also pleased to announced that The Rupert Swift Award will return this year in addition to the Butrous Foundation Young Investigator's award and the travel grant nominees.
