Please note that your abstract should be uploaded in one of the following categories:

  • Clinical

All submitted abstracts will be considered for a poster presentation, but a number of abstracts will also be selected for oral presentation.

Please note, that if you choose ‘Oral presentation’ in your submission it is only an indication of your wishes - you are not guaranteed an oral presentation at the conference. 

All abstracts submitted will be reviwed by the DMS 2022 Scientific Committee.

You can expect to receive a notification from DMS in mid October 2022 as to whether your abstract has been selected for a poster or an oral presentation or if it has been rejected by the committee.
