Abstract rules

You are invited to submit your work under the format of a structured abstract to ECDP2021.

The abstracts will be evaluated by the Scientific Committee of ECD2021 in a pear-review double blinded process that will select the abstracts accepted and those selected either for poster presentation either for oral free presentation (include the abstracts that constitute those with the highest level scientific content). The European Society of Digital and Integrative Pathology (ESDIP) will award the best oral free presentation and the best poster presented at ECDP2021.

All accepted abstracts will have the opportunity to be published in Journal of Pathology Informatics if this is the wish of the authors and after signing the respective Copyright form and Declaration of interests form.

The registration in the congress is mandatory to at least one author. If the abstract is selected for oral free presentation, then the speaker needs to be registered in the congress.
