Call for abstracts


The ISRS invites authors to submit abstracts for presentation within any of the ISRS 2017 topics (see below).

Submissions are sought oral and poster presentations.

Important dates

  • Abstract submission opening: September 2016
  • Abstract  submission deadline: Postponed to February 28 (midnight UC+1:00) (reviewing: February 2017)
  • Deadline for abstract reviewing: April 2017
  • Authors notification: End of April 2017


Language and revision

Abstracts must be submitted in English and should report on results of truly original research in stereotactic radiosurgery/SBRT, and closely related fields that have not been published whole or in part elsewhere. The proposal will be reviewed according to the scientific content and ethical considerations.

Preparation and style

• Do not use typefaces that resemble script.
• The use of abbreviations, except those are widely used, is strongly discouraged.
• They should be used only if they contribute to better comprehension of the manuscript.
• Acronyms should be spelled out at first mention.
• Metric system (SI) units should be used.
• The topic of the communication (see list below) and the field of research should be indicated.


The title should be in small letters with a capital letter at the beginning (no more than 255 characters).

Your abstract should be of the informative type, max. 400 words, containing a statement of the study’s objectives, a brief statement of methods used a summary of the results and a conclusion.

«Main debate symposium» will be a joint session with a debatable topic related to several medical fields including SRS/T and SBRT, other related fields, and also relevant congresses with invited leaders.

For any question related to the submission of your communication please contact:  




On Thursday 1 June, during the Closing session, the Young Professional ISRS Award, the Young Investigator Award and the Best Poster Award will be presented.
