Call for abstracts

Attenzione: apre in una nuova finestra.

General features

The OESO Steering Committee invites congress participants to submit abstracts.
There will be no oral parallel sessions during the Conference, in order to give
particular emphasis to poster communications.
Posters from ALL DISCIPLINES, either on the theme of the Congress, or on ANY TOPIC relating to the upper digestive tract, will be welcome

In addition to the traditional poster exhibit, a computer “streaming presentation” of the Posters will be organized during the Como Congress in a special room: this consists of a computer display of up to 5 power point slides prepared by the author(s) to complete a poster with pertinent details or instructive commentaries.
The authors are therefore encouraged to prepare power point slides (up to 5) to accompany each of their posters.
In case of selection of their abstract, they will be asked to send the corresponding slides to the organizers, to be included in the stream presentation.

Throughout the Congress, the Poster Jury as well as the attendees will have access, at any time, to the stream presentation of any posters on the program:

Twelve Posters will be selected by the Jury, to be given in an oral presentation
(5 min. + 5 min. discussion) during a Plenary Session scheduled for Monday, September 3, 2012
10:15 am – 12:00 pm.                                                                                                                                  
Copies of the power point slides should therefore be kept by the presenting author, to be used in case of selection of the poster for oral presentation.

  • Submission of abstracts is free of charge.
  • All accepted abstracts will be listed in the final scientific program of the Congress. A publication fee of $ 60 will apply to abstracts printed in the Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology, the official Journal of OESO (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins), listed in Index Medicus with an impact factor of 2.938 (Rank: 18 of 50).
