Instructions and requirements for submitting and presenting research abstracts

International Conference for Restorative Reproductive Medicine: Lisbon, Portugal 2022

Abstracts are now being accepted for the 19th International Conference for Restorative Reproductive Medicine being held in Lisbon, Portugal on March 10-11th 2023.  Authors are invited to submit their research for either in-person, or virtual presentation.  Both poster and oral presentations will be considered.   All abstracts must be received no later than Nov 23,  2022. 

After two years of virtual meetings and conferences, the IIRRM is pleased to announce the return of in-person conferences.  We will continue to offer "hybrid conferences" - making both in-person and virtual options possible for participants and attendees.  


Guidelines for Submission: 

1. Abstracts are welcome in any area relevant to Restorative Reproductive Medicine (RRM). RRM seeks to understand, restore, and support the natural processes of human reproduction and excludes interventions that suppress, destroy, or circumvent normal human reproduction. Specific areas of interest include:

  • fertility awareness
  • infertility
  • integrated systems of Restorative Reproductive Medicine
  • reproductive endocrinology
  • andrology
  • reproductive epidemiology
  • reproductive anatomy and physiology
  • psychosocial dimensions of human reproduction
  • research comparing restorative and non-restorative approaches to reproductive medicine
  • other topics relevant to restorative reproductive medicine

2.  Abstracts may be of original research, systematic literature reviews, theoretical development, systematic clinical observation, or clinical quality improvement.  Abstracts should reflect work in process or work completed but not yet published.

3.  All abstracts must be received no later than November 23,  2022.

4.  Abstracts are limited to a maximum of 500 words, including the title. The only identifier in the abstract text should be the title (no authors or affiliations). Abstracts should not contain charts, diagrams, or tables.

5.  All abstracts must be submitted using the online abstract submission system. Receipt of abstracts will be acknowledged by email. The contact details entered are those of the presenting author, who will be notified about the status of the abstract.  If additional authors were involved, the presenting author is responsible for informing the other authors about the status of the abstract.

7. You may select oral and/or poster presentation with your submission.

8. If you are submitting multiple abstracts for presentation each abstract must be submitted separately.

9.  Each abstract is reviewed blindly and will be judged for scientific quality, innovation, and relevance to and consistency with a restorative approach to reproductive medicine.

10.  Notification of acceptance or rejection will be sent by 7 December 2022.

11.  If your abstract is accepted, you will be asked to submit a current biosketch, 100 words or less, and complete an online faculty disclosure no later than December 13, 2022 for publication in the program and the IIRRM website.

14.  If your abstract is accepted for presentation, you will need to complete and sign a speaker disclosure form including disclosure of any potential conflicts of interest.

15.  Oral Presentations should be 15 minutes in length, including time for questions.

16.  Research posters will be displayed throughout the day of the meeting and will be viewed by those attending the meeting during breaks.  Poster presenters will be provided with a stand to hold a standard AO poster size or approximate size of 48” x 36”.  Orientation may be either portrait or landscape.
