Abstract submission

  1. Before you can submit an abstract, the system will require that you create an account. (Please note that accessing the Exordo system after creating the account can be only made using the original email and password. Please do not use alternative emails when accessing the system.)
    1. The author doing the submission will also need to sign a “Terms of Service” document on behalf of the submission team.
    2. Following the creation of the account, you can log into the system to change your original abstract until the final date of the submission period (20 January 2023).
  2. Your abstract should be entered in the online system by finding the “My Submissions” tab on your dashboard.
    1. Select “New Submission” for each abstract you would like to submit. The site will then walk you through the process step by step.
  3. During the submission process you will be asked to indicate the conference and the conference section for your contribution(s). You may review the Sections here.
  4. Submitters that intend to participate in the “Best Paper Competition” should indicate this at the time of submission. The best paper will be selected from each conference section. Papers will be evaluated in two steps: 1. evaluation of the abstract 2. evaluation of the presentation. Awarded papers will receive financial support for publication of a full-text article in a peer-reviewed open access journal.

Abstract review

The submitted abstracts will go through review by a RW2023 scientific committee comprised of experienced professionals in multiple areas :

Abstract criteria (from unacceptable to excellent)

  • Content (relevance, originality, significance)
  • Clarity (clear aims, appropriate methods and materials, clearly structured results and conclusions)
  • Language (appropriate use of language)

Authors can submit their papers to be presented as a poster-, or oral presentation. The decision of which abstracts to select for oral presentations is the responsibility of the RW2023 Scientific Committee.

The Committee will review all submitted abstracts.

Notification regarding abstract acceptance, presentation type and scheduling will be sent by 1 March 2023.

Book of abstracts

The book of abstracts in the fields of medicine and public health will be published as a supplement to volume of "Medicina" (Kaunas) after the RW2023.



After the review process, the submitters will be asked to upload their presentations.  Presentations will be made available to the public.
