Presentation formats

Oral presentation and poster abstracts are single submissions, with one or more authors. Abstracts should not exceed 300 words. Organize abstract sections using the following headings:

  • BACKGROUND – The hypothesis tested or purpose of the study.
  • METHODS – Details of the study design or protocol.
  • RESULTS – Results of the study with appropriate statistical inferences.
  • CONCLUSIONS – Clinical importance and potential significance of findings.

Oral presentations will be allotted a 8 minutes for presentation of the work, followed by a 2 minutes Q&A session. Abstracts that are not selected for oral presentations will be automatically evaluated for poster presentations.

Poster presentations are encouraged so that many individuals can share in new research findings, new ideas, innovations, and scientific advances. Presenters are asked to be at their assigned poster board location during the entire length of the poster session. If your submission is accepted for presentation in a poster session, you will receive further instructions to help you prepare your materials according to the required format.

Abstracts should be submitted in English.

Please note that abstracts must be submitted through the official online abstract submission system.

Please note that the acceptance of your abstract does not include congress registration. At least one author is therefor kindly asked to register for the congress.

Abstracts will be published in the print version of the final programme.

The EDA bestows six Best Abstracts Awards: three for the best Oral Presentation and three for the best Poster Presentations.



Symposia are organized in a 90‐minute session format for presenting related research on a single topic or theme (e.g., pathophysiology, diagnosis, treatment). The format typically includes a chairperson and three or four primary presenters. The chairperson, who may also be a presenter, arranges the symposium, provides a brief overview of the topic for the audience, and introduces speakers.

In the symposia submission, please provide a brief discussion of the symposia and the role of each participant. Max 1000 words.
