European College of Equine Internal Medicine

Call for abstracts 2020

Presentation format

The ECEIM invites submission of research presentations in two formats:

  • Oral presentations
  • Poster presentations

Abstracts for oral presentations will be included in the main program and are limited to 12 minutes followed by 3 minutes’ discussion.

What we will consider

Papers relating to recent research into any aspect of equine internal medicine will be considered. It is not allowed to submit abstracts on (parts) of research projects that have been previously published, or presented nationally or internationally prior to the ECEIM Congress 2020.

The submission of an abstract implies the author’s willingness to present (oral or poster) the abstract at the Congress.

Both diplomates and residents are encouraged to submit abstracts for oral or poster presentation. ECEIM residents are eligible for ‘best oral presentation’ and/or ‘best poster presentation’ award:

LUIS MONREAL AWARD 2020 for the best resident’s presentation - SPEAKERS EXCHANGE with ACVIM

ECEIM and ACVIM-LA have agreed to exchange resident speakers for their annual meetings. The two best presenting residents (oral and/or poster) at this year’s Annual ECEIM Congress will receive financial support to attend the 2021 ACVIM Forum. The support consists of a waived ACVIM congress registration fee and a lump sum of €1300 per person to be used exclusively for the 2021 ACVIM Forum.

You must be officially enrolled in an ECEIM residency program at the time of abstract submission in order to be eligible for the award. A fraction of the abstract slots will be reserved for ECEIM residents unless these become vacant.

Submission deadline - NOW DEADLINE IS MOVED TO MAY 22nd, 23.59h.

The previous deadline of 30th April has been moved forward to provide some extra time in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
