The submission of abstracts is limited to young investigators: 7 years from graduation i.e. after Ph.D. and/or clinical fellowship graduation.

Abstracts must be original and must not have been published or presented at any other meeting prior to ERIC 2022. Abstracts of an unfinished research will not be evaluated. Abstracts stating ‘data will be discussed in the presentation’ will not be accepted. Clinical case submissions are accepted. The abstract body must not include any indication of the personal details of authors. Avoid also reference to institutions, locations, or funding sources.

Abstracts must be submitted using exclusively the on-line abstract submission form you will find in this website. Abstracts submitted by email or fax will not be accepted. Abstracts received after the deadline will not be considered. The presenting author is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.

The Presenting author must be the Contact author in the submission form, and he/she must be listed the first in the list of authors. Each Presenting author can submit a maximum of 1 abstract, but the same research cannot be submitted twice, even with a different title. The Presenting author must register for the meeting before 19 September 2022 to ensure the abstract is included in the program.

The ERIC 2022 Meeting will be a traditional face-to-face event; however, all the accepted abstracts will be presented as electronic posters on a Poster Gallery platform which will be made available to all registered delegates. More information will be included in the abstract acceptance letter.

List of authors and institutions

This is a mandatory step. First, create a list of institutions. Each institution will be assigned a reference number. You will be requested to indicate the reference number of the institution when you create the list of authors. 

Abstract text

It must not exceed 500 words and must be written in English. Please do not leave blank lines to separate paragraphs. Special characters and symbols are accepted in the abstract except in the title. We suggest typing the text in a Word processing programme in a common font, and copy-paste it into the corresponding field. Bold, italic, and underlined texts are not accepted.

Abstract structure

  • Background
  • Material and methods
  • Results
  • Conclusions

How to use the online abstract submission form

First, you will be required to Create a ‘New Account’ to sign into your personal abstract submission portal. Your personal portal will allow you to submit abstracts and register to the meeting after the review process. If you do not click on the Submit button, your abstract will be saved as a draft. You will then be able to review it and submit it later (but only before the deadline). Abstracts that are in draft status after the deadline cannot be processed and therefore will not be considered for selection. 

For any further information related to abstract submission please contact the Technical Secretariat by email:

Changes and corrections

Once the abstract is submitted, it is possible to make corrections to the content or information (such as authors list and details, theme, conclusion(s) etc.) but always prior to the abstracts’ deadline. To correct your abstract, you must access the Abstract submission platform. Note that, modifications of your abstract are not possible after the deadline. In the case of errors in your abstract discovered after the deadline, you may indicate the correction on your presentation. If you want to withdraw an abstract already submitted, please notify us as quickly as possible at stating the title and number of the abstract to be withdrawn.

Evaluation and acceptance

The final selection will be made by the Scientific and Organising Committees that will determine the acceptance or rejection for each abstract. All abstract submitters will be notified by e-mail, around the 19th of August, about the outcome (accepted or not accepted) of the review and selection process. Please ensure that the email provided is accurate as all correspondences will be sent via email. If the abstract is accepted, further instructions will be provided at the time of results announcement.
