Paper submissions will not be accepted.

The Congress Programme Committee will allocate successful abstracts to session formats, including:

Abstract authors will be notified of the status of their abstract by May 2018; session formats and scheduling of presentations will be communicated by the end of June 2018.

All accepted abstracts will be published in a supplement of the online version of the European Respiratory Journal known as the Abstract Book. Publication in the Abstract Book or Congress Guide requires registration by at least one author.

Correspondence and further information regarding abstract travel grants and sponsorship will be sent to the corresponding author only. If you intend to apply for ERS sponsorship once abstracts have been accepted, please ensure that you are the corresponding author of the abstract.
