Organised Sessions submissions

Submissions for Organised Sessions are now closed. 

Organised Sessions should have a specific scientific focus and will be integrated in, and relevant to one of the scientific tracks in the regular programme (morning or afternoon sessions) with a maximum duration of 90 minutes. The outline and the abstracts of the presentations within Organised Sessions will be subject to the ECTMIH scientific peer review system.

ECTMIH levies no fee for organised sessions and the number of slots is limited. The slots will be awarded competitively on the basis of a proposal along a standard template. The registration fees, travel, boarding and attendance costs of speakers and participants should normally be covered by the organisers or the contributors. Limited support could be available on a case-by-case basis, with priority for speakers from low or middle countries.

Proposals will be assessed by the scientific committee on the basis of quality and relevance, taking into account diversity and representativeness.

Organisers will be notified of the acceptance of the proposal by 15 May 2019. After acceptance, any changes to the proposal should be submitted for approval to the Scientific Committee.

Important Notes:

For those who have submitted a proposal for an Organised Session, please bear in mind:

  • that organisers/chairs/presenters are NOT exempted from paying the registration fee
