Notification of acceptance

Presenters of all abstract types will receive the notifications of acceptance via e-mail in February 2023. Presenters with accepted abstracts for posters will receive a link to the e-Poster system by e-mail, enabling them to upload their poster presentation(s) prior to the meeting.

If you wish to withdraw your submission after having confirmed your acceptance, inform the Central ESGAR Office in writing (via e-mail) immediately. Please note that all presenters need to register for the congress!

Presentations must be prepared using PowerPoint for PC. Macintosh presentations must be saved in PC format. Speakers must deliver their presentation to the Preview Centre on a separate, labelled USB stick (ZIP disks are not accepted) or upload the presentation on the ESGAR presentation platform (link will be provided to presenters in due time). Presenters are responsible for testing their presentation for compatibility at the Preview Centre at the congress venue before handing it in. Further details will be made available together with the notification of acceptance.


The best 20 abstracts, submitted by residents who appear as the first author on the respective abstract and who will actually present their paper during the virtual meeting, form the “ESGAR Top 20”. Authors will receive a diploma, confirming that their abstracts have received the best ratings among other abstracts submitted.


The best ESGAR Poster Presentations will be awarded a Diploma. The following prizes will be awarded: Magna Cum Laude, Cum Laude, and Certificates of Merit. The evaluation will be performed by a committee and the awarded presentations will be flagged as such in the poster system online. Evaluation will be based on novelty, accuracy, educational value and design.
