    Abstract Submission for Posters (EPOS)

    The submission system for EPOS abstracts will be open from July 3 – October 10, 2017.

    Abstract Types

    Two types are available:

    • Scientific Exhibit: for standard scientific studies
    • Educational Exhibit: for description of a series of cases of a particular condition or a series of cases of a particular procedure (without having carried out a study)

    Case reports will not be accepted. We recommend submitting case reports to EURORAD, ESR’s radiological case database.

    Please make sure not to submit the same abstract for EPOS™ and for Scientific Papers, as this will cause duplicate submissions and immediate rejection of the involved abstracts.

    Notifications of acceptance and guidelines for presentation will be available by December 2017.

     

     

     

    Electronic scientific exhibition

    At ECR 2018, accepted and uploaded posters will be displayed in EPOS™ (the ESR's Electronic Presentation Online System). Therefore, it is mandatory to submit digital poster material (text, images, video files, etc) to EPOS™ for each accepted abstract by January 9, 2018 at the latest. All accepted posters are presented electronically in EPOS™ (no paper print outs).

    Congress registration:
    Posters will be included in the ECR 2018 electronic poster exhibition if the presenting author is registered for the congress.

    Awards:
    Before the congress, the Scientific Exhibition Jury will evaluate uploaded posters and present Awards (Magna Cum Laude, Cum Laude, Certificate of Merit) to the best ones.

    The Voice of EPOS™

    The successful platform for poster presenters will start into its third round! With 3 stages and over 80 sessions, The Voice of EPOS™ will substantially add to the scientific programme of the congress.

    Sessions will take place on all congress days and will also be broadcast online via the ECR Online streaming service.

    To strengthen the exchange within the communities and serve a multilingual and international audience, there will be a multitude of sessions presented and moderated in other languages than English.

    In addition to organ-based topics, The Voice of EPOS™ will feature exciting sessions such as Computer Applications, Molecular Imaging, Physics in Radiology and Radiation Protection.

    At ECR 2018, an extended Radiographer session programme will be offered.

    To present in a Voice of EPOS™ session, you need to select the respective affirmation during your poster abstract submission. Places are allocated based on abstract rating score and session topics.
    Information on presentation in a session will be sent together with the abstract notifications.
