Abstract Submission is open!

Abstracts are integral to Euroanaesthesia and provide a platform for anaesthesiologists and intensivists globally, at all career stages, to showcase their unique work. Do not miss the opportunity!

Abstract Submission closes: 13 December 2023

You must have a MyESAIC account to begin the submission process.

Abstract Submission Guidelines

Please carefully read the full guidelines before submitting your abstract(s).

The following conditions need to be met to submit an abstract:

  • The work in the abstract cannot be presented nor appear in another form at any large English-speaking meeting before the Euroanaesthesia 2024 Congress.
  • The work cannot be published before Euroanaesthesia 2024, in whole or in abstract, in an indexed journal.
  • Authors are responsible for ensuring that they have avoided, or at least declared, any significant conflicts of interest associated with submissions.
  • All abstracts submitted must adhere to the Declaration of Helsinki’s ethical principals for medical research involving human subjects and the rules laid down by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors in their Recommendations for the conduct, reporting, editing, and publication of scholarly work in medical journals. This requires that all research (clinical or experimental in humans or animals) must have approval or an exemption from a suitable Institutional Review Board (IRB), Independent Ethics Committee (IEC) or Ethical Review Board (ERB). If this does not exist, the abstract will be rejected.
  • The author(s) must transfer, assign, and otherwise convey copyright of ownership in said work to the European Society of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care (ESAIC) if published by the ESAIC. Copyright assignment only applies to the abstract submitted and does not apply to, or prevent, subsequent publication elsewhere of a full manuscript relating to the subject matter of such abstract.
  • If accepted, the author commits to present the work at Euroanaesthesia 2024. Registration deadline for accepted abstract presenters is 27 March 2024 (23.59 CET). The same presenter cannot be assigned to more than 3 abstracts. Co-authors should be appointed as presenters if that is the case. The abstract will be withdrawn if the presenter of the abstract does not meet the pre-registration deadline.

Free Registration and Travel Grant – ESAIC Trainees

A free registration and 300€ travel grant will be awarded to a selection of Trainee Abstract presenters in good standing with their ESAIC membership for 2024. The selected presenters will be contacted by the secretariat in due course.

More information about the different memberships and benefits of becoming an ESAIC members can be found here.

Abstract FAQ

How can I amend my abstract?

It is still possible to make corrections to an abstract prior to the submission deadline, even if it has already been submitted. The abstract can be saved, edited and revised online as many times as needed until the submission period ends.

After the submission period, corrections are no longer possible. If errors are discovered in the abstract after the deadline, you can either withdraw the abstract or – for minor errors – indicate the correction during a presentation at the congress. Please note, changes will not be included in the published version of the abstract. We, therefore, recommend carefully review your abstract before submitting it on the dedicated submission platform.

Can I change the presenter of an Abstract after the submission deadline?

The abstract submitter can login to the abstract submission platform through his/her MyESAIC account and select, in the authors section, another presenter for the abstract. The new presenter must be selected among the authors of the abstract.

All mandatory information should be filled in as appropriate.

The new presenter must pre-register for the physical Congress by 27 March 2024.

If a change of presenter is requested after 27 March 2024, the new presenter has to be registered for the physical congress before the change is possible. The original presenter is responsible for providing the new presenter with all information previously sent by the ESAIC Secretariat regarding the abstract.

Important: the same presenter cannot be assigned more than 3 abstracts. Co-authors should be appointed as presenters if that is the case.

What is the registration process of the Abstract presenter?

If the abstract is accepted, the work must be presented in Munich and in-person at Euroanaesthesia 2024. There is no possibility to present the abstract online.

Presenters of accepted Abstracts must pre-register for the physical Congress before 27 March 2024!

If a presenter fails to register before 27 March:

  • The abstract(s) will not be published in the e-supplement of the European Journal of Anaesthesiology and will be rejected for presentation at the Congress.
  • The abstract(s) will be withdrawn by the ESAIC and removed from all Euroanaesthesia-related publications.

View the applicable Congress registration fees.

Important: the same presenter cannot be assigned more than 3 abstracts. Co-authors should be appointed as presenters if that is the case.

What are the Abstract publication details?

All accepted abstracts will be published in their entirety as an e-supplement to the European Journal of Anaesthesiology (EJA). Note that publication of the accepted abstract is dependent on pre-registration of the abstract presenter.

If accepted for presentation at the congress, the abstract will be published as entered into the abstract submission programme.

What is the Abstract presentation format?

Abstract presenters will be required to prepare an e-poster and make a short formal presentation in front of the e-poster terminal.

Two chairpersons will conduct a short discussion of each abstract with the presenter and the audience, for every abstract in that session. In each session, up to 12 abstracts can be presented.

Abstract presentation will only take place onsite at Euroanaesthesia in Munich, Germany. Virtual/online presentations will not be organised.

What if there are time conflicts when presenting several abstracts?

We usually avoid scheduling several abstract presentations by the same person at the same time. Unfortunately, considering the high number of abstracts presented at the Congress, time conflicts may still occur and presentations cannot be rescheduled. Should this happen, please consider the following options:

  • Ask a co-author attending the congress to present one of the abstracts for you.
  • Ask the chairpersons of the sessions in which your abstracts have been scheduled to be the first to present in one session and the last in the other. This way you can present both abstracts yourself.

I still have an unanswered question. Whom can I contact?

If you have any questions regarding your abstract submission, please contact the ESAIC Secretariat via abstracts@esaic.org.

When contacting the ESAIC Secretariat in relation to an abstract, please always mention the abstract reference (#xxxx) and title.
