Written abstracts are required to be submitted with each video. When you submit an abstract online, you need to indicate whether the abstract is accompanied by a video, by choosing "Video" from the presentation style options. Additionally in order to ensure that your abstract matches the video, the Online Abstract Submission Number received in your email confirmation should also be clearly indicated on the DVD cover. Video submission without such an indication will be considered invalid, and will be rejected.

Two separate DVD discs (one for backup) are required for each presentation. Please carefully follow the video submission requirements:

  • The video presentation should be limited to seven minutes. Videos of a single patient will be considered only if the abstract contains data on a series of similar patients. Videos must be accompanied with appropriate narration in English.
  • The title of the video, the authors’ name, institution name and contact details should be included in the video.
  • Video format: MPEG; MPEG2; or WMV (Windows Media) Screen ratio of 4:3 or 9:16
  • Video signal: NTSC system
  • Region code: Free or 2
  • After acceptance, videos identical to the initial versions submitted should be labeled with your Assigned Presentation ID and recorded on the DVD discs. DVDs should be submitted to the Speaker Ready Room no later than one hour before the session starts.

Selected videos that are accepted for presentation at the WCE 2011 may be published in Journal of Endourology Part B, Videourology.
