Contribution types

Here you submit an abstract that will be part of the poster presentation.

Here you submit abstracts that are presented in a short talk. The duration of the short talk format is 5-7 minutes (also known as an oral poster presentation).

A scientific symposium consists of 4-5 talks per session. The abstracts must be submitted by the authors via the abstract system using the submission form “Symposium Submission”. In addition to the summarizing abstract for the symposium, the organizer of a symposium must also submit the abstracts of the individual talks. If fewer than five contributions are submitted, the missing number may be completed by the scientific program committee.

Submission Guidelines

  • The prerequisite for submitting an abstract is that it represents original work, not previously published and not being considered for publication elsewhere.
  • Your submission should be written in English.
  • Your submission should not contain more than 2500 characters (including spaces).
  • You cannot upload any figures/images to your submission.
  • You can add up to 5 keywords to your submission.
  • Please ensure complete listing and correct order of all (co-)authors, correct formatting and grammar.

General rules for abstract submission

  • Abstracts can be submitted for poster presentation, symposium or for short talk. The final decision whether an abstract is accepted as a poster presentation, a symposium or as a short talk, or even rejected, lies with the reviewer and the ICPM 2024 Scientific Programme Committee.
  • All main authors will be informed by email at the appropriate time whether the abstract has been accepted or not.
  • The conference fee must be paid upon acceptance of the abstract. Submitting your abstract does not automatically register you for the conference. Please note that the organizer can refuse to publish a contribution after it has been accepted if no conference registration has been made by the given deadline.


All accepted abstracts (except late breaking posters) of the 27th ICPM World Congress will be published as an online Supplement Issue to the journal “Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics”.
