Abstract Submission

Opening of abstract submission: 4 December 2018
Deadline for abstract submission: 3 March 2019


Abstracts are to be submitted for a theme and specific Symposium, Special Session, or Lunch Session. Please refer to the list of sessions and topics listed in the Programme.

Abstract submission is limited to 3 abstracts for free. Additional abstracts are subject to approval by the EWASS board and to a 30 EUR fee per additional abstract. Please contact ewass2019 @ kuoni.com to request approval, indicating the title, abstract, and session in which the additional submission(s) are requested for.

All abstracts must be formally submitted in English via the online Abstract Submission System. Please note that abstracts sent by fax or regular mail will not be accepted.

Do not forget to indicate the presenting author for each abstract. The presenting author is expected to attend the meeting and is required to ensure that all co-authors are aware of the content of the abstract before submission.

Please ensure that the e-mail address is typed correctly otherwise you will not be able to receive important messages regarding the status of the abstract. A confirmation email indicating a successful upload will be automatically sent to your email address. If you do not receive it, please contact us.

Abstracts can be saved as draft and modified, but no changes can be made to the abstract after the submission deadline.


ePosters only will be offered at EWASS 2019. Your scientific ePoster will be displayed on large monitors available on the site of the conference, and will have the opportunity to include movies. ePosters give the presenters an opportunity to more effectively convey information that would not necessarily be possible with a traditional printed poster, and it enhances visualization to attract interest of attendees, while at the same time protecting our environment! ePosters will also be available online before the conference to allow participants to view them in advance of the conference or on their laptop during the conference. More details on ePosters will be provided later.

Guidelines for abstracts

  1. The abstract must be written in English. The abstract should be brief and concise.
  2. The abstract should not exceed 700 words and cannot contain figures and tables.
  3. The title should be short and informative, with a maximum length of two lines.

For technical questions regarding your abstract submission and for any other queries, please contact the Congress Secretariat at ewass2019 @ kuoni.com.


Reviewing process

Abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific organisers of the various Symposia and Special/Lunch Sessions. The Scientific Committee reserves the right to re-categorize the abstract.

Abstracts can be accepted either as ePoster, or as oral presentations. Details on ePoster format and full presentation guidelines will be included in a notification letter.

Notification regarding the status of your abstract acceptance (oral, ePoster or rejected) should be sent to the abstract author mid April 2019.
