Call for Abstracts

Abstract Submissions Now Open!

Abstracts can be submitted through midnight on April 30, 2024. 

Academic and Clinical HHT Professionals must submit abstracts through the Cure HHT Research Network Hub

Submit Your Abstract!

The HHT International Scientific Conference is hosted and sponsored by Cure HHT. The Conference Organizing Committee invites authors to submit abstracts to be considered for inclusion in the Scientific Program for either oral or poster presentations. 

The conference sessions will be organized around the themes of Mechanism, Diagnosis, Treatment, Genetics, Drug Discovery, and Epidemiology, however, other topics of research are encouraged and welcomed for submission. Within each of these themes we will bring together basic scientists and clinicians, in the hope of stimulating and educating both. 

Abstracts should only include original data and be text only. Case reports must be submitted for poster presentation. 

If you have any problems with the abstract submission process, please contact Cassi Friday at 

Abstract guidelines 

  • Abstracts must be written in English. 

  • The abstract should be organized as follows: Title; Authors; Affiliations; Objective; Method; Results; Conclusion.

  • Author names should be listed in the following order: last name, first initial, degree.

  • Author affiliations should be listed in the following order: department, institution, city, state, and country.

  • The abstract text should be a maximum of 250 words (not including title, authors or affiliations).

  • There is no limit to the number of abstracts a presenter can submit, but the Organizing Committee expects that all abstracts selected for presentation will be presented by the first author. 

  • The submitter can choose their preference of presentation type – oral or poster – but the final decision will be up to the Organizing Committee.  Abstracts will be reviewed and scored based on actual results reported in the abstract; abstracts without any data will receive a lower score.  Case reports will only be selected for poster presentations.
