Abstracts Submission Details

Before submitting an abstract, authors are urged to carefully read the information below:

  • Authors do not need to be subscribers of Arrhythmia Alliance
  • Abstracts must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere at the time of submission.
  • Multiple abstracts around the same subject or using the same dataset (salami publication) is discouraged and may be penalised by the markers where it is felt that the data could have been better presented as a single abstract.
  • Authors should be aware that the media have open access to the sessions.


  • The presenting author must be listed as the first author for the abstract.
  • All correspondence will be sent to the submitting author only; the submitting author is responsible for making sure that their contact information is correct during the submission process.
  • You will be asked to provide a username and password to log in to the abstract submission site (each abstract will have a unique username and password). If you forget this information, please email info info@heartrhythmcongress.org.uk.

Abstract Acceptance

  • If your abstract is selected, the presenting author will be eligible to register for Heart Rhythm Congress at the abstract presenter rate. Other authors do not receive a reduced rate towards registration, and only one author per abstract is considered the presenter.
  • If your abstract is accepted, one of the authors must be able to present it at the congress. Failure to present an abstract will result in a 2-year submission ban for all authors.
  • If you are submitting an abstract for the allied professional category and it gets accepted, the presenting author must be an allied professional.
