Submit your abstract

Abstract submission

Congress delegates are cordially invited to submit abstracts of their scientific work for presentation as a free communication at the IFCC-EFLM EuroMedLab Brussels 2025      Congress. An unlimited number of abstracts may be submitted provided the presenting author applies for “full registration” or “young registration”. Abstracts are welcome in all fields of clinical chemistry, haematology, clinical molecular biology and laboratory medicine, in the broader sense.

Abstracts will primarily be presented via poster.

A limited number of abstracts will be selected also for oral presentation during congress symposia. Authors wishing to compete for these oral communication slots should mark the appropriate field on the on-line abstract-submission form.
