Presentations of abstracts
The submission of an abstract constitutes a formal commitment by the presenting author to present the abstract (if accepted) orally or as a poster in the session and the time assigned by the EHMSG Program Committee.

Publication of abstracts

Accepted abstracts will be published in Microbiota in Health and Disease, the official journal of the European Helicobacter and Microbiota Study Group – EHMSG.

Abstract awards
All abstract presenters are automatically entered in the competition of the Abstract Awards. There are two awards for both oral and poster presentations. The winners will be announced on-site.


Poster Printing Service

The EHMSG recommends to use the on site poster printing service to enable you to have your poster professionally printed and shipped directly to the congress venue in Antwerp.  

Your poster will be waiting for you onsite – no need to worry about carrying it on the plane.
