Presentation format

The ECEIM invites submission of research presentations in two formats:

  • Poster presentations

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

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 2022. 

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

  • An abstract should be max 300 words in length (main body of the abstract excluding title - no references required for the abstract). Longer abstracts may be accepted but 1% of the total score will be lost for each word above the 300 words limit (eg an abstract with 320 words will lose 20% and is highly unlikely to be selected)
  • The use of pictures, tables or graphics is discouraged, unless absolutely necessary

The scientific committee might request clarifications or changes to be made to the abstract. All selected abstracts (oral presentations and posters) will be published in the Journal of Veterinary Internal Medicine (online version only). Abstracts will also be published in the proceedings of the ECEIM congress. Submission of the abstract constitutes the authors consent to publication. Presenters of accepted abstracts must register for the Congress by the early-bird deadline and attend the congress to present their abstract. Presenters who are unable to attend the congress should arrange another person to present the paper, and notify the organizing committee.
