All abstracts submitted by November 22, 2018 (23:59 CET) will be evaluated by a panel of reviewers.
A submitted abstract may be considered for oral presentation (ranking among the best 38 abstracts), digital oral presentation (the next best ~90 abstracts in ranking) or hard copy poster presentation.


Notifications of abstract acceptance will be e-mailed to the authors by December 21, 2018.
Please note that accepted abstracts will only be included in the final programme if the respective presenting author has formally registered and paid the registration fee.


Please pay careful attention to the ECCO'19 guidelines for abstract presentation.

  • The 38 best abstracts will receive an oral presentation slot in the scientific programme of the 14th Congress of ECCO
  • The next best ~90 abstracts will be digital oral presentations, with a 5-minute oral presentation either on Thursday, March 7, 2019 from 17:30 to 18:30 or on Friday, March 8, 2019 from 17:20 to 18:20
  • The remaining accepted abstracts will be displayed as hard copy posters for the duration of the Congress


Every year, chairs of the digital oral presentation sessions select the Top 10 best digital oral presentations. At the closing of the congress, these TOP 10 DOPs are awarded with a prize: a certificate of award and also free congress registration to the 15th Congress of ECCO. Awarding will take place in the plenary hall during the session "Awards and closing remarks" on Saturday, March 9, 2019, 12:50-12:55.

ECCO strongly encourages young investigators to submit their original work.
