Points and Rules to be Considered During Paper Uploading

Abstracts should be submitted online using the abstract system via the website in English for the 10th Eurasian Emergency Medicine Congress (EACEM) and in Turkish for the 20th Turkish Emergency Medicine Congress (TATKON). If you want your abstract to be included as Full Text in the abstract book to be published after the congress, you can make the necessary addition from the Full Text tab in the system with your abstract. Your Full Text should not exceed 1,200 words, including References. Abstracts sent via e-mail and postal mail independently from the system will not be accepted. Since the abstracts sent via the internet will be published in the same way if accepted, attention should be paid to spelling errors.

The presenting author who submits a paper to the congress must have completed the congress registration process by 17:00 on Wednesday, 30 October 2024, at the latest. Papers that are not registered or not presented at the congress within the specified time period will not be published in the congress book.

Submission Deadline: 10 October 2024 23:59
