EFORT aims to provide worthy scientific guidance via the presentation of well-established medical techniques, but also to highlight new evidence in emerging fields. Renowned experts will discuss their procedures, the rationale for their decisions, their successes and failures. At the Congress, an important source of international knowledge and experience in the prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the musculoskeletal system will be within your reach. The EFORT scientific sessions are training programs with high scientific value. Authors invited to contribute to the scientific content of the Congress by presenting their work orally should adhere to the same standards, as their contributions are an essential part of the core programme.

As EFORT is the biggest European platform to share orthopaedic and trauma knowledge, an active participation in our upcoming 2024 Congress in Hamburg, Germany, is the best opportunity to identify new data related to any specialty, gather useful tips and tricks to enhance daily medical achievements and expand the professional network.

Abstracts must correspond to previously unpublished work. EFORT reserves the right to reject your abstract if previously presented. Moreover, EFORT has focus on ethical research misconduct. Any kind of plagiarism or fraud like fabrication and falsification of data will not be tolerated and handed over to the corresponding responsible authorities.

Submission is defined by differentiation of Clinical Research vs. Basic Science vs. Review studies and by one presentation type among Free Paper or Clinical Report (oral podium), or as Poster. EFORT reserves the right to change your abstract(s) allocation. There is no restriction on the number of submissions from a unique author or group, but each registered participant will have a maximum of six abstracts (3 oral presentations and 3 posters) accepted. Double submissions are automatically withdrawn.

Deadline for registration of presenting authors is Thursday 29 February 2024, 23:59 CET.


Abstracts accepted as Free Papers are presented orally within scientific sessions embedded in the core Congress programme. Very high scientific quality is expected from these presentations, which should correspond to complete studies with outstanding results and innovative conclusions. To ensure that sessions run smoothly, please refer to the Presentation Guidelines available online. The best-rated Free Papers under both Orthopaedics and Trauma main categories will be selected to compete in the Free Paper Award competition and will receive specific guidelines.


All abstracts accepted as Posters will be presented at the Congress as print wall paper posters. Authors are welcome to add images, tables and detailed data to better document their work. A large display area will be dedicated to poster presentations and Poster Walks will be organised during the Congress to have posters evaluated by experts in the corresponding fields. To ensure that posters are under the correct format for display, refer to the Poster Guidelines available online. Best-rated Posters will compete for the Jacques Duparc Award and will receive specific guidelines.
