General Abstract Submission Guidelines

ESCP will only accept abstracts not previously presented to or under consideration by another European or International forum that would conflict with presentation at ESCP. ESCP will accept abstracts that have been presented at a national meeting, however may choose not to publish it if it has already been published. Please ensure you declare all relevant details when you submit your abstract.


New Trials Abstract Submission Guidelines

This popular session will again include the presentation of several new research projects from across the ESCP membership, including panel feedback and audience discussion. 

Submissions are invited relating to trials that are either new or ongoing but which require further recruitment on a national or international basis. Studies presented can be in any area of colorectal surgery but must be prospective and involve multiple cenres. They can be of any format including randomised trials and large-scale observational projects, and do not need to have started recruitment at the time of presentation in September. 

Projects should be open to potential new centres to get involved (nationally or internationlly) and at a stage where the discussions and feedback can be incorporated into improving the project.

Please submit ideas for this session via the usual abstract submission portal, selecting the "New Trials Research" option. Deadline is the same as main abstracts; 25 May 2023, 23:59 CET.

The best trials will be selected on merit for presentation of protocol during the session. Presentations will be reviewed by a panel of experts. The best new trial presentation will receive a prize of €300 awarded by ESCP.
