  Abstract submission guidelines (pdf)

The OESO Steering Committee invites congress participants to submit abstracts for Poster or Oral presentations.

Abstracts from ALL DISCIPLINES, either on the theme of the Congress, or on ANY TOPIC relating to the upper digestive tract, will be welcome.


Twelve abstracts will be selected among those submitted. The authors will be honored at the Gala evening when they will receive a diploma. In addition, they will be offered free registration at the time of the OESO 14th World Conference in 2017.


●  Preferences for oral or poster presentation should be specified by the authors. Final decision will be made by a special selection committee.
Oral communications will be of 5 minutes each, followed by a 5 minute discussion.

●  In addition to the traditional poster exhibit, a computer “streaming presentation” of the Posters and oral presentations will be organized during the Monaco Congress in a special room: this consists of a computer display of up to 10 power point slides prepared by the author(s) to complete a poster with pertinent details or instructive commentaries.



All authors are therefore encouraged to prepare power point slides (up to 10) to accompany each of their abstracts.


In case of selection of their abstract, they will be asked to send the corresponding slides to the organizers, to be included in the stream presentation.

Selected authors will receive relevant information in due time.


Throughout the Congress, the Poster Jury, the Chairs of the oral sessions, as well as the attendees, will have access, at any time, in addition to the abstract book, to the stream presentation of any posters or oral presentations on the program.


Twenty four (24) selected oral presentations will be given on Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Twenty four (24) Posters will be selected by the Jury, to be given in an oral presentation during 2 Plenary Sessions scheduled for Thursday, September 3, 2015.
