No pictures are allowed.
The abstract title and body text should only include pharmacopoeia names printed in lower case. Trade names are not allowed. Non-proprietary (generic) names of drugs, written in lower case, are required the first time a drug is mentioned in the text. References, credits or the authors’ academic degrees or grant support are not to be included in the abstract. Standard abbreviations may be employed in the text. Place special or unusual abbreviations in parentheses after the full wording at the first time it appears in the body of the text. Company names are not allowed in the title but can be named in the authors’ affiliation.
Consent for publication of individual patient data - applies to abstracts with identifiable patient information
For the publication of an abstract that contains identifiable information about patients, it is necessary that patients have given consent for the research to be published. For all abstracts that include identifiable patient details (e.g. gender, age, illness, location) or images, written informed consent for the publication of these must be obtained from the patient (or their parent or legal guardian).
It is the author’s responsibility to obtain written informed consent for publication of clinical details and/or clinical images from the patient/parent/guardian/relative of the patient. A respective statement needs to be included in the abstract text.
Duplication of publications
Abstracts containing data that has been presented or will be presented at a different scientific meeting during a 12 months period prior to EAACI 2018 can be submitted.

EAACI is committed to ensuring the integrity of its scientific, educational, and research programmes. Abstract submission requires disclosure of any financial or other interest that might be construed as resulting in an actual, potential, or apparent conflict. The submitter is responsible for obtaining disclosure information from all co-authors, to be entered in the author section of the submission page.
