1. CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Abstracts may be submitted for three types of session: oral communications for "short papers" sessions, poster sessions and the symposium entitled "10 most clinically meaningful papers of the year that may change your views and practice"

Please indicate clearly for which type of sessions you are submitting your abstract.

Abstract submissions for selection by the Scientific Committee will be accepted until 19th June 2019. Notifications of acceptance will be sent to the proposers by 9th July.

Submissions will be assessed for innovation, creativity, rigour of design and importance of the work for scientific progress in the field. Younger researchers and clinicians are particularly encouraged to present their work.

The ECED is keen to include cutting-edge projects and work in progress for discussion and dissemination amongst colleagues. When submitting work in progress, please describe the essential design and, where possible, preliminary results.

Given time constraints, the Scientific Committee may advise that some submissions for oral communication may be proposed to be presented in poster format.
