Call for Abstract SUBMISSION

Late Breaking Poster Submission is closed!


The NeuroGASTRO 2017 Congress, organised by the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM), is the key event in the European scene on neurogastroenterology, digestive functions and related pathological conditions. A large number of abstracts have already been submitted by several groups throughout Europe and other countries. Every effort is made to ensure the optimal environment for poster presentations to allow your work to get the best possible and highest quality exposure. During the closing ceremony the 20 best abstracts will be awarded
and will receive a free registration via reimbursement.


Accepted abstracts will be published online in NEUROGASTROENTEROLOGY AND MOTILITY, the official journal of the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, and online on the congress website.


Important Date

Deadline for late breaking poster submission: 29 May until 22 June 2017


Rules for Submission
Participants are invited to submit original scientific abstracts for poster presentation provided that the abstracts have not been previously published as a full paper. If you have submitted your paper to a journal for publication, please ensure that the publication date will be after the congress.

Note that abstracts presented previously at national or international meetings can be submitted providing this is declared, but that we particularly welcome work not previously presented at international meetings. Authors are requested to conform to guidelines for submission of abstracts. Abstracts not conforming to the guidelines will not be referred for review. The abstracts must be submitted in English and must also be presented in that language. Abstracts will be reviewed by a panel of experts and, if accepted, be selected for poster presentation (or may be rejected).

Submission of an abstract constitutes a formal commitment by the author to present the abstract in the session and at the time decided upon by the ESNM Scientific Committee. Any change in the presenting author needs to be communicated in the form of a written statement. If the original presenting author is unable to present the abstract, it is that person’s responsibility to ensure that one of the co­authors takes over this role. The registration fee for the presenting author will not be waived, but is considered valid for his / her replacement.

Notification of acceptance or rejection will be emailed to the submitting author at the e­mail address supplied by the beginning of July 2017. Detailed information, guidelines and recommendations for poster presentation, as well as time allotment, date, hour and venue, will be sent in advance to authors whose abstracts are accepted for presentation. Registration to NeuroGASTRO 2017 is compulsory to be able to present the abstract and get it published in the online journal – and must be completed by Thursday, 22 June 2017.


Conflict of Interest
Abstract submission must be accompanied by a declaration of any potential conflict of interest for all authors, since it is in the intent of NeuroGASTRO 2017 to provide high-quality sessions focused on educational content that is free from commercial influence or bias.
