Conditions to participate


Upon notification by the EADV, chairs, co-chairs and invited speakers in the official scientific programme will receive a complimentary full registration. The registration badge and documents will be organised directly by the EADV Registration Department and you will automatically receive the registration confirmation letter no later than 2/3 weeks before the Congress.

Speakers invited to the oral sessions to present their own work and abstracts (Free Communications and Oral e-Poster presentation) will be required to pay for the full registration fee.

Speaker Disclosure of Potential Conflicts of Interest

All speakers must disclose any possible conflicts of interest before accepting an invitation. Speakers must also explain any conflicting interests to the audience at the start of the lecture. A slide indicating conflict of interest or a confirmation if there is none, should also be shown on the screen after the title of presentation. If no announcement is made, the chairperson shall ask for any relevant disclosure at the end of the presentation.

The EADV Scientific Programming Committee requires that all presentations be as free of commercial bias as possible and that any information on commercial products or services be based on already generally accepted medical thinking. It is also preferred that generic drug names be used wherever possible and that any presentation referring to unlabelled or research-associated commercial products should disclose this situation to session attendees.

Programme Format

Sessions shall be of a high professional and educational level. A session should be planned, coordinated, administered and evaluated in terms of educational objectives.

Audio visual Requirements

All rooms will be prepared for PowerPoint presentations. Speakers should express any special needs in advance.


The Scientific Committee invites Authors of very important results or papers with high impact factors to submit their late breaking abstracts for consideration and inclusion in the “Late breaking news session” that will take place during the Vienna congress.

Abstracts may be submitted by Authors or Submitters having obtained all rights from Authors to proceed with the submission.

Please note that the submission of each abstract has an administrative cost of 100€. The submission process is concluded with your payment of said amount to the EADV. Authors of rejected, incomplete or wrongly submitted abstracts will not be refunded and will not benefit from an oral presentation during the congress

The EADV Scientific Programming Committee will review all abstracts one by one and select the best submitted (for a predetermined number of slots). The Authors of such abstracts are invited to hold a 15 minute presentation (12 minute presentation + 3 minutes for Q&A) during the “Late breaking news session”.
