Abstracts Information

Presenters with a complete congress registration have their validated abstracts confirmed within the scientific programme and can access the final presentation schedules.

Authors with an exceptional extended registration deadline are invited to compete the process by Wednesday 15 April 2020 | 23:59 CET.

Indeed, as a consequence of the current COVID-19 outbreak situation, abstract presenters confronted to restrictions for foreign travel (from either governments or institutions) or facing uncertainty on their future participation in large-scale events have exceptionally received an extended deadline to complete their congress registration.

Oral Presentations as Free Paper

Abstracts accepted as Free Papers will be 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 Free Paper 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.

Oral Presentations as Clinical Report

Clinical Reports will be presented orally during the Congress, in a few dedicated Clinical Reports sessions. They should refer to ONE SINGLE clinical case presenting scientific value for the use of a specific treatment or technique.

To ensure that sessions run smoothly, please refer to the Clinical Report Presentation Guidelines.

Poster Presentations

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.
