Following the decision to hold two ECR events in 2022, the ESR has reopened abstract submission for its onsite congress in July. Abstract submission for ECR 2022, to be held on July 13-17 in Vienna, is now open. Aspiring presenters will have until March 16 to submit their abstracts and take advantage of the opportunity to present their research at the congress.  

The decision to offer two ECR events in 2022 was made due to the developing epidemiological situation in Europe. To ensure that ECR 2022 can be held under the safest and most favourable conditions, the onsite congress has been postponed until July. A second online ECR event, the ECR 2022 Overture, will take place on the original dates of March 2-6 and will offer attendees a glimpse of what is to come at ECR’s grand return to Vienna in the summer.

Reopening abstract submission for ECR 2022 ensures that the congress will feature the most up-to-date scientific research and discoveries from the world of imaging, explains ESR President Prof. Regina Beets-Tan. “As the European Congress of Radiology has always been an exhilarating and wide-reach global stage for scientists to present their work, we wish to offer the opportunity to as many colleagues as possible to present ground-breaking science on an international stage”, she stated. “With critical breakthroughs and advancements happening rapidly in radiology each and every day we will ensure that ECR 2022 in July is packed, not only with state of the art and advanced education, but also with cutting-edge science from our medical field”.

For those who already had an abstract accepted for ECR 2022 during the original abstract submission period, their presentation remains fully scheduled as planned. Nevertheless, they are also encouraged to submit additional abstracts if they have new research or insights to share with congress participants.

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the ECR 2022 Programme Planning Committee and submitters will be contacted after the deadline.
