2. Outline

Clinical Trials
“Clinical Trials” here are the medical studies for humans, and refers to the intervention trials on prevention, diagnosis, or treatment. Although intervention using medical supplies or medical equipment is at the core, intervention of meals, exercises, and rehabilitation could also be included. For example, the randomized controlled trial using medicine can be included in "Clinical Trials". The prospective observational study without intervention should be applied to “Cohort Studies”.

Cohort Studies
“Cohort Studies” here refers to prospective epidemiological studies. These include prospective observational studies based on registry.
* First priority will be given to “Clinical Trials / Cohort Studies” that will be announced for the first time at the 80th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Japanese Circulation Society and have not been announced or submitted to any other scientific meeting. However, consideration will be extended to those “Trials / Studies” that have been announced previously.

3. How to Submit Your Abstract

1) Registration Procedures
Please provide information on the background, purpose, method and design, if it is the first time to announce the abstract. It is not necessary to describe the result and/or conclusion.

2) Body of the Abstract
The body of the abstract (excluding title, author's name, and organizational affiliation) must be 260 words or less in English and in addition 20 words or less are allowed for the title. It may include one diagram, which should be in GIF or JPEG format and of 10MB or less in size. The diagram can be in either landscape or portrait orientation, which will be reduced to about 6cm x 4cm when printed. However, in case the abstract includes a diagram, the body of the abstract should be 170 words or less.

  • Accepted abstracts will be published in the abstract CD-Rom, in which the abstract title, text, author's name and organizational affiliation will be printed exactly as you registered on the website. We recommend you to carefully read the instructions on this website before filling out the required information upon submitting your abstract.
  • Some outstanding research among the accepted abstracts may be selected by the Editorial Committee to be published in the Circulation Journal (official journal of the Japanese Circulation Society). When you submit your abstract, you automatically agree that your abstract will be considered as applicable for selection by the Editorial Committee. Even if you decline the opportunity for publication in the Circulation Journal, it will not affect the abstract review result.
4. Conflict of Interest

When a Presenting Author submits an abstract, it is necessary to check whether or not there are conflicts of interest with a company or for-profit group related to the subject of the presentation. COI status must be disclosed for the preceding one year from the time of abstract submission. (Co-presenters do not need to make a disclosure.)
For more details, please access the abstract registration website and check whether or not there is a COI related to your presentation. Please also disclose your status of COI during your presentation at the annual meeting (either slide or poster presentations).
Please refer to the following Detailed Regulations for more information:
Detailed Regulations of COI

5. Result of the Abstract Review

Notification of acceptance of your abstract will be sent to the registered e-mail address in mid-December, 2015.

6. Session and Presentation Style

Details will be announced in due course.

7. Remarks
  • We would like to bring the matter of Conflict of Interest to your attention.
  • If you wish to withdraw your abstract, we will accept withdrawal requests until 2 months prior to the first day of the conference session (i.e. Monday, January 18, 2016).
    From Tuesday, January 19, 2016 on, withdrawals will not be possible, since the abstract will be treated as an academic presentation/achievement by that date.
