Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues,


It gives me great pleasure to invite you to participate in the Third Middle East North Africa Committee for Research and Treatment in Multiple Sclerosis (MENACTRIMS) Congress which will take place from November 24-25, 2017 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.


The congress aim is to provide a forum of excellence in MS education and research. Building on the collective efforts of the scientific committee, the meeting will deliver state-of-the-art presentations on MS by renowned international and regional keynote speakers. The content of the meeting includes up to date information on the latest treatments, clinical research, therapeutic strategies, imaging, epidemiology, differential diagnosis, risk factors, pregnancy, and much more.


The congress will convene over a two-day period to present major updates through plenary sessions, scientific symposia and teaching courses. This year’s congress will also feature parallel sessions addressed to nurses in collaboration with the International Organization of MS Nurses (IOMSN) and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC), and to regional MS societies in collaboration with the MS International Federation (MSIF). In addition, the European Charcot Foundation will participate in the meeting for the first time through a scientific symposium.


The congress is also a great opportunity to meet and network with colleagues interested in the field of MS clinical care. More than 600 healthcare professionals from the MENA region are expected to attend. We look forward to welcoming participants from all over the world to the lively cosmopolitan city of Dubai.

Editorial Guidelines for Abstract Submission


All submitted abstracts must be in English



The content of the abstract is solely the responsibility of the author. The original abstract is reprinted exactly as provided. During submission, it must clearly indicate the name of the presenting author, who will be considered the contact person for all correspondence connected with the submitted abstract.

All submitted abstracts need to have the names and surnames of all co-authors, along with their positions in their affiliated institutions.


Title & Length:

A poster abstract must have a short, specific title (no abbreviations) that clearly indicates the nature of the investigation. It is encouraged that the title is set so as to attract the audience and to hint to the conclusion of the investigation.

All abstracts should not exceed 500 words.



A well-written poster abstract typically has the following identified sections:

Background/objectives: a brief introduction, which states the problem that you are addressing as well as some background information on the issue. The introduction of the poster abstract should include a very brief background 1-2 statements followed by the objectives of the investigation.

Design and methods: the methodologies, number of test subjects and scientific approach used to conduct the research.

Results: it is expected that authors present data that support their conclusion. Tables and graphs should include explanatory captions.

Conclusions: further areas of research and overall conclusion of the research

Citation: a reference list and acknowledgements, if applicable


Tips in writing your poster:

Make the title dynamic and conclusive, rather than descriptive.

Identify your submission category carefully to assure proper consideration.

Use generic names. Use trade names only when necessary.

Avoid beginning sentences with numerals.

Standard abbreviations may be used without definition. Nonstandard abbreviations should be placed in parentheses after the first use of the word or phrase abbreviated.

No references, credits or grant support should be included in the poster abstract.

No identifying information about patients participating in a study or trial should be used.

All abbreviations must be defined before being used as an abbreviation in the text.

Proofread poster abstracts carefully to avoid errors before submission. No corrections will be allowed or made once the poster abstract has been submitted.
