we would like to thank all submitting authors for their contribution.

Important Note

In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, we regretfully announce that the 33rd Workshop of the European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group, originally scheduled to take place from September 10 – 12, 2020 in Glasgow, United Kingdom, needs to be postponed in its physical form to another year. 

We have monitored the situation and updates from the World Health Organisation (WHO) closely during the past few weeks and have tried to explore all possible options. To guarantee the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, sponsors and staff, the EHMSG Board has come to the conclusion that the conference cannot take place in its scheduled format this year. While there is still a small chance that the situation might improve to an extent that a physical conference is possible, the decision has already been made now in order to provide clarity to all parties involved.

In order to guarantee that the latest research and education can still be shared continually on an international level, EHMSG will transition to a virtual conference in a compact version taking place on one day only on Saturday, September 12, 2020 providing both live and on demand talks as well as a platform for e-posters. 

We therefore are asking for E-Poster submissions only (no oral presentation will be possible). All abstracts will be subject to Scientific panel scoring as per usual, with successful abstract submitters notified end of June 2020.

Detailed technical instructions on how to create and submit E-Posters to the platform will be made available to all successful presenters. 

Notification of Acceptance

​All abstracts will be reviewed by the peer reviewers after the deadline on June 21, June 2020.

  • Authors will be notified on acceptance by email beginning of July 2020.

  • The corresponding/submitting author will receive all correspondence concerning the abstract and is responsible for informing the other authors of the status of the abstract.

  • Accepted abstracts will be presented as E-posters.


Presentations of abstracts
The submission of an abstract constitutes a formal commitment by the presenting author to present the abstract (if accepted) as an E-Poster in the session assigned by the EHMSG Program Committee.

Publication of abstracts
Accepted abstracts will be published in the "The Year in Helicobacter" Journal.


Abstract awards
All presenters of e-posters are automatically entered in the competition for the Abstract Awards. There will be two awards for e-poster presentations. The winners will be announced in the closing session.
