  5. All abstracts will be reviewed by the ESPD Scientific Committee, who will consider its formal aspects and the content. They will decide which abstracts will be accepted and may reconsider the final presentation type.
  6. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Pediatric Dermatology journal Supplement. Abstracts not suitable for display will be rejected. Please have your abstract checked for correct spelling, punctuation, grammar and formal structure. The organiser reserves the right to edit abstracts if necessary prior to their publication in the Issue Supplement of the Pediatric Dermatology.
