The aim of any type of « communication », including scientific communication, is always to transmit a message. For communication to be effective, the message must be understood by all parties concerned.
The necessary precision of scientific communication requires clarity and rigour. Each learned society, like ESCP, has its recommendations and guidelines for handling and presenting scientific contributions. It is essential to distribute these widely among the community.
In addition to providing an overview of the call for presentations and specific information relative to different types of scientific communication, we have included a sixth chapter. This describes the procedures adopted by the ESCP Scientific Committees and the ESCP Research and Education Committees to evaluate submitted abstracts and arrive at a final decision on their approval, review or rejection. This is intended to create an environment of maximum clarity and understanding and anticipates some questions from authors.
We hope that these simple guidelines will facilitate your preparation and submission of abstracts and in turn that ESCP will receive submissions and contributions of even greater quality.
The ESCP Communication Committee.
