** SCIENTIFIC PROGRAMME **
Will my submitted abstract (s) be transferred to the EUSEM virtual congress 2020?
Authors having submitted an abstract on the former Copenhagen 2020 scientific platform will automatically see their submission transferred to the virtual EUSEM Congress 2020. They will be contacted personally in the weeks to come to be informed about the new format to hold a virtual presentation and this, according to each specific assignment (oral presentation Vs. poster presentation).
Authors withdrawing their presentation(s) from EUSEM virtual congress 2020 platform will not have the possibility to directly transfer their accepted work to 2021 but will be allowed to submit again their abstract next year. Please note that each new submission does not guarantee acceptance as the complete review will start anew for 2021.
Will the virtual EUSEM congress provide CME credits to participants?
EUSEM is working towards an accredited virtual congress. In that view we will submit the adapted programme to this e-format to EACCME, the responsible organisation, in order to obtain a CME accreditation for the event.
The registration fee for EUSEM virtual congress 2020 will include CME credits following an online tracking of attendance, subject to the acceptance of the CME application.
Will I be able to amend my accepted abstract?
You cannot amend your abstract but only withdraw it.
** FACULTY **
I am an invited Faculty member – will my session be running in the EUSEM virtual programme?
Specific details regarding the invited sessions to be included in the educational content of the new virtual event are currently being defined, in collaboration with EUSEM Scientific Committee. At this stage, it is unfortunately not yet possible for us to say if the originally planned session in which you were participating will be maintained or redefined for the virtual programme. As part of our commitment to deliver a high quality programme, all scientific assignments will be reorganized and presenters with a confirmed presentation on the former Copenhagen 2020 scientific programme will be contacted personally to be informed about either cancellation or rescheduling of their specific presentation(s).
What should I do with my hotel/travel booking(s)?
If you managed your travel and hotel arrangements personally, please get in touch with your carrier/hotel directly explaining them the situation.
