Important Information on the Selection Process

All abstracts are peer-reviewed and ranked on the basis of scientific merit by experts in the category selected. The Scientific Programme Committee uses these rankings to develop the scientific sessions. Abstracts are assigned to either plenary, parallel, or poster sessions.

The ESHG meetings have currently 3 types of acceptance for submissions:

Spoken presentation in a concurrent or plenary session
Poster presentation in one of the poster sessions
Electronic Poster presentation: in the electronic poster area

IMPORTANT: Note that the presentation at the meeting will be the condition for the publication of the abstract in the electronic supplement of the European Journal of Human Genetics.

Please note that you may be presenting author of only one paper, but co-author of any number of abstracts. 
Multiple submissions
 with identical presenting authors will be automatically rejected.
Identical submissions from different first authors will also be automatically rejected.
Abstracts containing no results or structure will be rejected.
