Commitment to Present

Submission of an abstract constitutes a commitment by the author(s) to present if it is accepted. Failure to present, if not justified, will jeopardize acceptance of future abstract submissions. Only the primary author or co-author may present the accepted abstract at the 2016 Advances in IBD Conference. This conference does not provide honoraria for abstract presenters.

The conference will withdraw abstracts upon written notification from the submitting author by October 31, 2016. If circumstances prevent attendance, the primary author must arrange for the presentation to be given by a co-author. Acceptance of the abstract obligates the author to present the paper.
